In this Jan. 18, 2013 photo, professional dancer Georges Exantus lifts weights in his bedroom in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Exantus thought he’d never dance again. The earthquake three years ago in Haiti’s capital flattened the apartment where he was living, where he spent three days trapped under a heap of jagged rubble. After friends dug him out, doctors amputated his right leg just below the knee. Three years later, the 32-year-old professional dancer is back on the floor, spinning away as he does the salsa, cha-cha and samba. A prosthetic leg doesn’t hold him back. If some see him as something of an outcast, his friends find inspiration: He’s not one for self-pity; he was determined to dance again, and did. (AP Photo/Dieu Nalio Chery) less
