THESE twinkle-toed Halifax youngsters could become record-breakers.

The students at Parkinson Lane Primary School were among 600,000 taking part in an attempt for the largest simultaneous dance routine in multiple venues by performing an Olympic-themed boogie.

Schools taking part in Calderdale also included Midgley School.

The dance, choreographed by resident choreographer at the Royal Ballet Wayne McGregor, was set to five-minute piece of music by Scanner and Joel Cadbury and included running, rowing, swimming and other Olympic activity actions.

It marked the arrival of the Olympic Torch in Britain.

The students who took part have been learning the dance as part of their PE lessons.

Head teacher Gugsy Ahmed said: “I think it’s great that our children have been part of a world record-breaking attempt.”

He added his thanks to the school’s PE team who has worked on the project.
