Rumer Willis is dancing again.

The season 20 champion of ABC's Dancing With The Stars let her fans know via social media that she's finally able to resume practicing her moves after waiting weeks for stress fractures in her right foot to heal.

'So happy and tired after my first day back dancing,' the 27-year-old daughter of Bruce Willis and Demi Moore wrote alongside a close up selfie she posted on Instagram.

'I am so grateful for everyone who put up with me while I was so miserable in my boot not being able to dance and for the amazing people that got me back on my feet again. #nevergiveup #Broadway #livinthedream,' she added.

It's good news for Rumer who is scheduled to make her Broadway debut in the musical Chicago in a week.

She'll take on the role of Roxie Hart for a seven-week engagement ending November 1.

Rumer suffered the stress fractures on her foot while on the Dancing With The Stars Live! Perfect Ten tour in June.

As a result, her Broadway debut in Chicago was pushed back a month, to September 14.

Tye Blue, who describes himself on his Instagram account as 'Producer. Director. Host. Performer. Writer. Creative Director of Rumer Willis' company (Black Sparrow Prod.),' shared a black and white photo of himself and Rumer in a dance studio on Monday.

The pair are set to rehearse routines for Chicago with Rumer wearing a cropped striped top, black tights and heeled dance shoes plus a cane.

Tye wrote in the caption:  'It makes me so happy to finally see @ruelarue in #dance shoes and working #choreography the first time in so many months.'

'I didn't realize how a dance injury can be so much more emotionally challenging than it is physically. To have your passion forcibly blocked is no fun. Especially coming off of something like winning #DWTS,' he continued. 

'I'm #proud of my girl for taking the time her body needed to heal; We are all only flesh and blood after all. This is gonna be epic. @chicagomusical #RumerIsRoxie #WorthTheWait #Fosse #BlackAndWhite #Broadway.'

Show your style stripes like Rumer in Milly

Rumer Willis shows off her dancer's body in a Milly cropped sweater and matching co-ord midi skirt. Mesh and sheer are a must-have trend for spring that is following through into fall.

We love the texture, scoop neck and strategically placed sheer panels. You might have it in your head that horizontal stripes are a no-no, but allow Rumer to prove you wrong! We would also style this top seperately with a leather skirt for fall or boyfriend jeans for a more casual look.

Sadly, this exact one is sold out already but head over to Shopbop to check out current Milly designs. Milly is a contemporary American brand that has found fans in many starlets and is known for whimsical prints and on-trend designs. And no worries, we have rounded up some options that will do the trick in the edit below. The one from Finders Keepers is spot on and on sale!
