A three-hour charity dance transported hundreds of people around the world.
The annual charity Zumbathon, organised by local instructor, Rachel Evans, raised money for The Hamlet this year.
More than £2000 was raised for the charity which supports young people and adults with disabilities and complex health needs.
Ms Evans said: 'Over 200 people came together to support the charity and the event even included a special track by myself and Daniel Banner, who is 18. He has attended the Hamlet Centre for several years.
'His mother, Michelle Banner, is my Zumba student and I know how valuable the service the Hamlet Centre has been to them.'
