Fifty dancers take part in Diss ‘flash mob’

Fifty dancers 'flash mobbed' the Park Pavilion in Diss on Saturday for a dance marathon.

The event was part of South Norfolk Council's contribution to the London 2012 Cultural Olympiad.

In Diss, the council joined the Bandstand Marathon which this year saw 150 bandstands across the UK actively engaged in a cultural performance.

Dance instructor, Scooby from The Garage in Norwich, was invited by the council to create a 'flash mob' in the town.

It attracted 50 dancers who took part in a dance routine to pop superstar Lady Gaga's 'Edge of Glory', choreographed by Scooby.
