Adrianne Haslet-Davis

In March, Boston Marathon bombing victim and professional dancer Adrianne Haslet-Davis danced for the first time since losing part of her leg in the tragedy. During the 2014 TED Conference in Vancouver, 33-year-old Adrianne was moved to tears while dancing to "Ring My Bells" by Enrique Iglesias with Christian Lightner as her partner. Wearing a white sparkly dress, Adrianne took the spotlight and touched the audience with her emotional performance. Of the experience, Adrianne said:

"I'm thrilled to have danced again. It was invigorating to dance publicly with my new leg but also to realize that my return to dance may have the power to inspire other people to reach for their goals and be proactive in their lives. I was always determined to dance again, and I knew that I had to, that I would, and here I am. My first dance happening to be so near the anniversary of the marathon bombing stands as a reminder that I'm a survivor, not a victim."
