RYAN PROUD HE'S KING OF DANCE...
BY KATHARINE BARNEY for This is Nottingham
People used to stare at Ryan King because of the way he looked.
Now they can't take their eyes off him for a different reason.
The Notts teenager suffered from stiff legs as a child, as well as being born with a cleft palate and double cleft nose.
When he was younger he felt self-conscious, as people used to stare at his face.
Now Ryan, 19, who is 6ft 6in and takes size 13 shoes, has won a Scottish line dancing national championship and come fifth in the world championships in Tennessee.
Ryan, of Church Lane, Brinsley, said: "When I'm dancing it's like nothing else matters. At first I thought people were staring at my nose, but they were just watching my dancing. It gives me some kind of release and I forget everything." click for more
