Bolivian female prisoners find freedom through flamenco

Female inmates at a prison in La Paz, Bolivia, have been taking flamenco classes as part of a programme to help reintegrate prisoners back into society.

The man behind the programme - renowned Spanish dancer Francisco Jose Suarez - says that by reawakening their sense of artistic freedom, the troubled prisoners will find it easier to make the right moves once they eventually leave the prison.
