STUDENTS took to the dance floor as part of an Olympic world record attempt.
The Academy at Shotton Hall, in Peterlee, and children from primary schools across the area joined together to take part in the dance challenge, which saw groups across Britain perform the same routine at the same time.
The results of the event are still being collated, with videos of the celebrations, along with statements from invigilators, being compiled before Guinness World Record officials make a decision on whether the attempt has come out top.
The current record is held by the Netherlands, where 264,188 people took part in 1,472 locations.
Shotton Hall, which is a performing arts academy, could feature in the roll of honour, as organisers are putting together details of the activities.
The session was put together to help promote Big Dance 2012, which will run from July 7 to 15 and is part of the 2012 Olympic Festival.
