A team from a performing arts group joined celebrity presenter Dermot O’Leary during his 24 hour Danceathon for Comic Relief.
Both professional dancers and students from Living the Dream’s School of Performing Arts, based in St Albans, were spotted during the 24 hour dancing stint.
They surprised Dermot with an Uptown Funk flashmob and then a freestyle dance off.
Zoe Jackson, director of Living the Dream, said: “We were so honoured to have been part of it for such a great cause and especially to be there for his last two hours and celebration finale moment.
“Dermot called us his ‘dancing secret agents’ and told us we gave him the energy to keep going.”
