Mexico City: Drivers stuck in traffic treated to ballet

Why ballet dancers are being given right of way on Mexico's usually congested roads?

by

    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.
