The Aberdeenshire League of Highland dancers held their second virtual flash mob recently, once again welcoming hundreds of dancers.

While the group unites dancers and dance teachers from across the north-east, the dancers of the flash mob hailed from around the world.

The latest challenge was to dance either an Irish Jig or a Hornpipe, following from the success of the group's first virtual flash mob where over 600 dancers performed either a fling or pas de basques.

The group have already announced their May flash mob, and it's an opportunity for dancers to get creative.

On May 23 dancers are being asked to perform and share their own choreographies.

Dancers of any age and from anywhere in the world can take part, and it is up to the dancer to choose their own music and make up all of their own steps.

Routines should be no longer than a minute and a half and Aberdeenshire League say "have some fun with your dancing".

Aberdeenshire League have been organising the virtual flashmobs to bring the highland dancing community together in the absence of classes, shows and competitions.
