British dancers get a hand changing careers after retiring

Dancers Career Development is working with British dancers to help them move into other careers once their time as professional dancers is over.

    Professional dancers, like many sport stars, are elite athletes with short careers.

    But when injury strikes or retirement looms, few dancers have lucrative endorsement deals to fall back on.

    Many struggle to move into other careers, but one British organisation is helping make the transition easier.
