Road to recovery
Leela Beaty - Back dancing.jpg
Photo courtesy of Painted Barn Media Leela Beaty has made a triumphant return to dancing just 10 months after being in an accident that left her without the use of her left arm. Beaty has performed with Paula’s Dance Academy, including helping the team capture a national championship earlier this month at Myrtle Beach. Beaty, 17, will begin her senior year at Warren County High School in August and is still going through procedures that could help her regain motion in her arm.
Her baby blue Air Jordans were already stained red. The yellow Chevy Sonic she affectionately referred to as ‘Sunny,’ was smashed up on the side of the road. And a fence once standing on Wheeler Road was now crumpled and scattered about, including one post pushing its way completely through Leela Beaty’s left shoulder.
