    Mexico City is one of the most congested cities in the world, with huge traffic jams a regular part of people's commutes.

    But now motorists are being treated to an unexpected surprise when they hit the red lights: ballet performances, adapted to fit into the time between the lights.

    It's part of a plan to bring the dance form to the masses.

    Al Jazeera's John Holman reports from Mexico City.
