'They are just a detail': Brazilian ballerina, 16, who was born without arms becomes...

A ballerina born with no arms is inspiring the world with her dancing skills. 

Vitoria Bueno, 16, from Minas Gerais, Brazil, is chasing her dreams of being a ballerina despite her disability. 

She was first prompted to take up ballet on the advice of her physiotherapist, who noticed the girl's passion for dancing. 

Bueno has since become a social media sensation, with over 150,000 Instagram followers, where she frequently posts videos of herself showcasing her talent.  

When Bueno's mother first dropped her daughter off at ballet class when she was aged just five, she worried about her fitting in. 

Born without arms, Bueno's dream of being a dancer seemed unrealistic - especially in a small town of Santa Rita Do Sapucai in rural Brazil, where her disability made her a social curiosity.

'People would line up outside the house to see her,' said her mother Wanda, 39, still hurt as she recalled the insensitivity. 

'They would lift up her sleeves to look.'
