Ida Arbeit dances again

Kairos Dance Theatre brings together people of all ages to move together.

In early March the public television series MNOriginal followed the Kairos dance company with video cameras and was able to capture some wonderful footage of 101-year-old Ida Arbeit, full of spunk, performing from her wheelchair. She was accompanied by 91-year-old saxophonist Irv Williams.

Eight days later, Ida Arbeit passed away.

Last night MNOriginal aired the segment it taped back in March. It provides a wonderful glimpse of a woman living her life to the fullest, right up to the end.
