Hatfield school’s World Record attempt

YOUNGSTERS in Hatfield took part in a world record attempt to mark the start of the Olympic Torch Relay.

Children from St Philip Howard School joined 1,000 other schools from around the UK, as well as others from across Europe, USA, South America, South-East Asia, the Middle East and the Far East, to try and break the world record for the largest simultaneous dance routine in multi venues.

Those taking part performed a dance created especially for the event by top choreographer Wayne McGregor with an original score, C�leste, by Scanner and Joel Cadbury.

The current world record for the Largest Simultaneous Dance Routine (Multi Venue) is held by the Netherlands, with 1,472 locations and 264,188 people dancing.

The children from the Woods Avenue school are still waiting to hear if the record was broken.
