Visitors to Ilfracombe harbour were amazed to watch a flash mob ballet spectacular come to life before their eyes.
The adult dancers are all members of Dancing Feet Academy in Braunton and have all been learning the routine through online lessons during lockdown.
Apart from a couple of low key outdoor sessions, the first performance for the 20 strong group together was live in Ilfracombe, as they took to the pier, the Quay and the harbour beach.
The video was filmed and edited by Gemma Pons Alsina of www.gemmapons.com and the mastermind behind the routine was professional dancer Sarah King of Dancing Feet.
She said: “Amongst the dancers are mothers, temporary home schoolers, doctors, full time students, creatives and teachers. Everyone had their own pandemic related worries - dance was a welcome escape.
“Creating and learning the material, with the view of future filming, was a focus for all of us and I’m beyond pleased with the end result!
