Boston Marathon bombing survivor Adrianne Haslet dances on in PBSM’s ‘Dance Floor’



Studio 52 is a community artist space located in the heart of Allston, and is proud to support the Boston music scene and local artist community.

When seeking out a performer for their video “Dance Floor,” Danish duo PBSM wanted to enlist a dancer that had a certain passion and inspiration — and it’s likely that no one wanted to two-step again more than ballroom dancer Adrianne Haslet, who lost one of her legs in the Boston Marathon bombing of 2013.

After doing the foxtrot on the Boston Marathon finish line in 2015, and then finishing the race as a runner in 2016, Haslet shares her talent — and struggle — in PBSM’s new video (released February 2) for the title track of their 2017 EP.

“We reached out to American dancer Adrianne Haslet to hear if she by any chance would consider flying out to star in our music video — which she did,” PBSM say. “And since being told that there was a one in a million chance of ever dancing again after she lost her leg in 2013, she has been struggling to get back to the dance floor — determined to beat the odds — which she did.”

Watch Haslet, who has become an activist and motivational speaker since the terrorist attack, return to her happy place and forge forward in more ways than one with PBSM’s video below.
