Dance teacher June Fletcher says she has no plans to retire even though it is 58 years since she started her dance academy. “I never see myself giving up, although, like all dance teachers it affects your joints and takes you a while longer to recover, she says. “I had a hip replacement and was meant to take six weeks off, but I was back after two-and-a-half weeks.”

June, in her 70s, who has a dance studio in Briarfield Road, Gleadless Townend, adds: “I have loved every minute of it.”
