Rilee Thurber loves to dance to Taylor Swift. And if it happens to be for a good cause, well then that’s just an added bonus.

In a video that is quickly going viral, the five-year-old danced to Swift’s “Shake It Off” to raise awareness for Dwarfism Awareness Month in October.

At 32 inches tall, Rilee herself has a form of dwarfism known as achondroplasia.

Following the success of the video, Riley’s mother Angela started a Facebook page called “Smiles from Riley,” which she uses to inform others about her daughter’s condition.
