They had style and rhythm and now a team of tap dancers are waiting to discover if they are world record breakers.
Members of Broadland School of Dance in Aylsham took part in a national Tapathon challenge to beat the largest number of dancers to perform a routine.
The performance, on behalf of Children in Need, was the culmination of two months of rehearsals.
More than 40 girls, aged four to 17, completed the Tapathon at the Aylsham Care Trust Centre today.
Other members of the group supported the record attempt at the Perfect Performers dance school in Sprowston.
