1,530 tiny dancers came to the event to practice their plie and sauté moves for half an hour.

The school children and ballet students were all dressed in adorable pink tutus, which made for some lovely photographs!

As you’d expect, a few of the youngest dancers didn’t manage to complete the whole lesson.

However, Guinness World Records adjudicator Brittany Erin Dunn was very impressed with how well most of the kids paid attention to the teachers and followed the class.

The record-breaking dance session was organised by the charity Yan OI Tong and DNA WeCheck to celebrate the beauty of ballet and promote healthy habits.

"My daughter likes to dance in ballet very much and she wanted me to do it with her," said a mum at the event. "It was really a memorable experience for her to be a participant among nearly 2,000 kids in a Guinness World Records attempt."
