Around 48 participants took part in the non-stop three hour dance workout.

Jade Taylor lead the class with many routines including numerous squats and a lot of hip shaking.

Organiser of the event, Hannah McGranaghan, said: “What a success it was, it took some time before we were able to walk as normal! Yorkshire Bank, the bank which is used by Ratcliffe and Bibby Solicitors, agreed to match anything we raised up to £500 and therefore the total raised from this event stands at £1,160.

“We would like to thank all the participants, sponsors, the bank and Jade Taylor for making this event such fun and worthwhile.”
