A professional dancer who lost a portion of her left leg nearly one year ago in the tragic Boston Marathon bombing has returned to the stage for the first time.

Adrianne Haslet-Davis showed off her new prosthetic leg as she performed at the 2014 TED Conference in British Columbia on Wednesday, ABC News reported.

The 33-year-old performer's bionic leg was designed specifically for dancing.

Haslet-Davis finished her first performance with a smile and tears in her eyes.
