Dancing dad defies macho stereotypes and takes ballet lessons with his girls

A 54 year-old father and bricklayer Joilson Santos, defied macho stereotypes as he enrolled in ballet lessons to help his 10 and 8 year-old autistic daughters, in the Brazilian town of Feira Santa. What started as a small project called 'Ballet Azul' (Blue ballet), that saw mothers joining in with their autistic daughters, soon encouraged Santos to take part as well.
