Tap-dancers from the Broadland School of Dance have attempted to beat a world record, as they took part in a 'tapathon'.
More than 40 dancers from the school spent weeks learning a dance routine for the event on November 19.
And thousands of people across the UK tap-danced simultaneously as they tried to beat the Guinness World Record in aid of Children in Need. The current record is 7,596 tap-dancers.
The 'tapathon' was held at the ACT Centre, Aylsham.
Dance teacher Katy Carroll said: 'We had 42 people take part. They all practiced the routines for four to five weeks.
'Its been intensive, but the kids have all had a great time.'
The tapathon is the second time the dance school has taken part in a world record attempt, after an effort last year failed to claim the title.
