Inspirational Boston Dancer to Appear on “DWTS”

Boxer Victor Cruz was eliminated yesterday on “Dancing With the Stars,” but the biggest news of the night concerned Adrianne Haslet-Davis, the dance teacher who lost her foot in the Boston Marathon bombings and has inspired the nation and its arts community with her positive attitude and vow to return to the dance floor.

Host Tom Bergeron announced that viewers would hear from Haslet-Davis on next week’s program, when plans will be revealed for “DWTS” to help with the dancer’s recovery. Derek Hough has even invited Haslet-Davis to perform with him on the show when she’s ready. “It’s hard for anyone to understand what she must be going through,” Hough told the Boston Herald. “But if she has the determination and she has the passion…she’s going to be dancing again. It’s not going to slow her down.”
