Still Dancing At 89 [07.22.09]

Professional dance is not usually kind to the aged. Most people over 45 must retire. But one dancer at this year's American Dance Festival is still performing - at 89 years old.

Susan Gittler went from dancing to the sounds of a victrola in her grandmother's sitting room to attending NYU and joining a prestigious dance company. Also in the show: A man builds a Lamborghini... in his basement.
