Boston Bombing Victim Dances Again
Last night was definitely a night one victim of the Boston Marathon bombing will never forget.
Haslet-Davis vowed just days after the bombing that she would dance again and last night the former Arthur Murray dance instructor did just that.
And from the pictures she looked fantastic.
Decked out in a sparkly, white dress with a short fringe skirt that Haslet-Davis paired with a simple pair of white ballet slippers – that she wore on both feet, which I just loved!
“I was always determined to dance again, and I knew that I had to, that I would, and here I am.”
And she got there with the help of a fellow amputee, Hugh Herr, director of biomechatronics at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Herr designed Haslet-Davis’ bionic leg specifically for her and specifically to get her dancing again. According to Herr
“A human being can never be broken,”
And last night he and Haslet-Davis most definitely proved that.
See a few photos from her debut performance below and look for Adrianne to dance again soon. She says she’d love to show off her new leg and new moves soon on Dancing With the Stars.
