More than 80 dancers from the Performanze Academy, which holds classes in Watlington, Chalgrove and Crowmarsh, joined in the attempt at Watlington Memorial Club and raised £830 for the BBC’s Children in Need appeal.

The children, aged three to 16, performed one of two dances to the Robbie Williams song Candy.

Although the nationwide attempt to break the record of 7,900 dancers was unsuccessful, Rosie Easton, who runs Performanze, said the children enjoyed being part of it.

She said: “It has made the world of difference to the children’s confidence because they have achieved something and it has helped a great charity. It gave the children something to focus on and aspire to and was a fun group event.”

Each dancer received a certificate and a T-shirt for taking part.
