What to do in retirement? How about shaking your pom-pons?


If you're age 60 or over and daunted by the prospect of having to work again, or just as bad, the idea of putting off retiring indefinitely, then a new movie might provide a little goose.

The documentary Gotta Dance chronicles the first season of the NETSationals, New Jersey Nets' cheerleading team. Unlike your standard squad, this one's comprised of mostly untrained dancers aged 60 and over. Instead of retiring and hitting the couch, its participants took a chance, auditioned, and won places on the special team. During lulls in games, the group -- some of whom are grandparents of the buxom young fawns on the standard cheerleading squad -- hustles to center court and shakes their stuff to hip-hop music while the crowd goes wild.
