16-Year-Old With No Arms Defies Odds To Become Ballet Dancer

Would you think that arms are just a detail in the world of Ballet? One 16-year-old with no arms is proving it with her amazing talent!

Arms are just a ‘detail?’ Most people wouldn’t agree. Most would think arms are vital in the world of dance. But Vitoria Bueno, a 16-year-old with no arms defies the odds to become a ballet dancer! This beautiful, teenage girl is inspiring the world through the way she was born--with no arms. She is reminding us through God, all things are possible including the seemingly impossible.

Vitoria was born in Brazil and fell in love with ballet at a young age. With the help of her parents and God above, she bravely joined the world of dance. As she grew in her skills, so did her confidence. When she dances, she seems to float across the stage. Her elegance is so mesmerizing, you almost forget she doesn;t have arms.

Despite the fact she doesn’t look like the average dancer, her differences remind us, “We are more than our disabilities, so we have to chase our dreams,” she said. Vitoria not only is a ballet dancer, but she also is skilled in tap, jazz, and contemporary dance!

In faith she followed her dreams and now she is inspiring anyone and everyone she encounters. She now has an audience that goes beyond the stage thanks to social media, with more than 17,000 followers on Instagram.

Ballet not only provides her with an artistic outlet. It helps Vitoria gain the muscles and flexibility she needs in order to do everyday tasks for herself with no arms. She relies on her feet to not only get dressed and dance, but she uses her toes to apply makeup, open her bedroom curtains and so much more.

This young woman proves just how amazing and unique God has created each of us and if we keep up the fight of having faith, we can reach our God-given dreams!
