Dancing For Dad


Anyone who has ever lost a family member can relate to Bindi Irwin’s story. In her case, her dad Steve was only 44 when he was killed by a fatal jab by a Stingray while doing what he loved best. Althoughshe and her Crocodile Hunter father had amazing adventures, there’s still an empty space in her life.
To honor her dad, when she appeared on Dancing With The Stars, Bindi dedicated her contemporary dance performance to the song “Every Breath You Take” to him. During rehearsals, she broke down crying several times remembering that her father was very tough but also very tender as a family man. One particular memory, of how she would grasp his fingers when she was very small, was incorporated into the number which showcased her athletic ability and her talent for dancing.
The result of Bindi’s hard work and dealing with the pain of her loss was a spectacular performance that tugs at the heartstrings of everyone who misses Stever Irwin as well as their own loved one.
