Vitoria Buono Boche, a 16-year-old ballerina from the Brazilian state of Minas Gerais, is missing both of her arms from her shoulders down, but that has not stopped her from pursuing her passion for dancing. This talented teenager is enrolled at the Academia Andrea Falsarella, located in Santa Rita do Sapucai, where she has danced ever since she was five.
