Derek Hough: Amy Purdy Has New 'Dancing' Legs!

Amy Purdy hangs onto her new dancing legs as she stops for autographs ahead of practice with Derek Hough in Los Angeles on Friday afternoon (March 28).

Derek, 27, wrote about Amy‘s new prosthetics in his weekly blog on TVGuide.com. Check out what he wrote:

Amy got new legs this week, but it’s not because of this incident. I’ve been talking to her prosthetics maker about options and they found feet for swimming. When you swim, your feet are pointed, so when she puts these on, she’s on her toes the entire time. Her face just lit up after she put them on. She was like, ‘I feel like a lady. I wanna cross my legs slowly and show off my feet.’”

“It was really sweet. I am really, really excited about this week and her new legs! What it’s done for us is it’s opened up a whole room of moves that we couldn’t do with the other prosthetics because it wouldn’t aesthetically look right. We have the contemporary, so now we’re able to add lifts and use her legs in ways we couldn’t before. It’s nice to have that freedom now. I’m also excited because Amy‘s story is so important and the opportunity to be able to share something with the audience and with her family is inspiring. Plus, no one’s tried to dance in swim prothestic legs before, so Amy‘s going to be a pioneer as usual!”

On Monday night’s show, Derek and Amy will be dancing Contemporary.
