A group of north-east dance teachers were overwhelmed with the response to their recent virtual flash mob.

The Aberdeenshire League invited dancers to dance together by performing either 16 pas-de-bas or a highland fling in their homes or gardens at a designated time.

Dancers who participated were invited to submit a video to the group's Facebook page, and more than 600 videos from dancers were shared.

Participating dancers hailed not only from the length and breadth of Aberdeenshire, but from all around the world.

The group are now looking at organising similar future events, details of which will be shared on their Facebook page.

Highland dancers are invited to join this Thursday's Clap For Our Carers event, which sees people across the country take to their doorways to show appreciation for Britain's key workers every Thursday at 8pm during the coronavirus pandemic.
