    thats cute, but i cant help but wonder what problems that will cause in his hips/spine without any false limbs to cushion the impacts of walking, let alone dancing. o0;

    Cute, but kind of sad because he`d never be able to dance professionally.

    As long as he doesn`t try to become a professional MMA fighter whose only attack is a headbutt to the knees...

    I mean...

    As long as he doesn`t try to become a professional ballet dancer.

    He`s so sweet <3 Cute little guy! We must love and nurture his dreams or else he`ll grow up bitter and crazy and turn to the sea.

    I was in a ballet class once. It was less ballet and more skipping around in tutus every day. And dammit did I want a black tutu badly! But the shop didn`t have any, so I did what any other 4 year old would do and threw a temper tantrum.

    Oh and I had to wear tap shoes because ballet shoes didn`t fit, you know, lack of toes and all >_>

    I saw a three limbs, one eye, nose and jaw missing amputee perform the song "I fall to pieces" while dropping his prosthetics on stage in New York, Its good to suceed, its better to have good humor despite it all.
