Dance Instructor Injured in Marathon Bombings
April 22, 2013

Adrianne Haslet-Davis with her husband, Adam Davis
A dance teacher was among the victims of last week’s Boston Marathon bombings. Adrianne Haslet-Davis and her husband were both badly injured by the second explosion, and doctors were forced to amputate Haslet-Davis’ left foot, bringing many dancers’ worst nightmare to life. The Arthur Murray Dance Studio instructor vows she’ll dance again, however, and even promises to run the marathon next year. “I can’t wallow in woe is me,” she says. In the meantime, Haslet-Davis’ friends and coworkers have established a fundraising page in her name to help with the couple’s medical expenses and rehabilitation: We at DT wish them both speedy recoveries!
