2:10 Feature Story - The Tiller Girls - Irene Holland: She's 84-years-old and still capable of the odd high kick.
Irene Holland, or as she was known on stage… Irene Starr… was part of one of the most famous dance troupes of last century. They were the Tiller Girls, known for glitz, glamour, but also precision and timing.
And that meant Irene performed on stage with some of the biggest stars .. names like Frank Sinatra, Bob Hope, Danny Kaye, and Nat King Cole. She's recently released a book, Tales of a Tiller Girl.
Simon talk with Irene Holland from Devon, where she runs a ballet school.
