I don’t think the title of this post should highlight this awesome guy as “disfigured” first, than a dancer second. Why not use a less defeating word instead of “disfigured”. Maybe, Differently Abled Dancer Inspires Audience in Brazil? Dancer with Physical Differences Inspires Audience in Brazil? Unfortunately, most labels for people with mental or physical differences are often cloaked with defeating words that have known historically negative connotations (i.e. crippled, disfigured, disabled). A little bit more mindfulness in words goes a very long way.
