    A dedicated ballet dancer is still teaching at the age of 97 – in same dance hall she set up 72 YEARS ago.

    nnSprightly Joyce Harper has taught generations of aspiring ballerinas at the school she set up in 1946.

    nnShe still teaches lessons twice a week to dancers ranging from two to sixteen years old, and says the dance school is what “keeps her alive”.

    nnJoyce, from Henleaze, Bristol, was even awarded an MBE for services to dance in 2011, presented to her by Princess Anne.
