The over-60s pirouetting to good health

An increasing number of pensioners are taking up ballet.

The Royal Academy of Dance has put this down to the popularity of TV programmes like Strictly Come Dancing.

There are health benefits too. Some practitioners say it could be the key to a longer, healthier life.

The Royal Academy of Dance will hold a week of free ballet classes across Scotland in January.

BBC Scotland's Emma Ailes has this report.
