Margaret Hills, 85, still teaching ballet

UCLA archive

Dancer Margaret Hills, in her youth.

This weekend they're throwing a birthday party for Margaret Hills, a British ballet teacher who's been teaching in Southern California for more than 30 years.

She's 85, and she's still driving from Palos Verdes to Santa Monica twice a week to teach class - including pointe at 7:45 Saturday mornings.

KPCC's Kitty Felde profiled Hills several years ago; here's her piece from the archive.
