KIDS danced themselves dizzy and into the record books when more than 800 performed on the pitch at Wakefield Trinity Wildcats’ home game.

Weeks of planning went into the event, which took place before the fixture against Hull FC on Sunday.

The current record for largest remote dance class stood at 690, and with an official announcement of 787 children from 26 schools taking part, plus the Wildcat Kittens, Dolls and members of Joanne Baker School of Dance, the Wildcats well and truly smashed their way into the Guinness Book of World Records.

Event organiser Jodie Travis said: “The success of the event has really exceeded my expectations. The children were fantastic, the atmosphere was electric and most of all everyone had so much fun”

Wildcats chief executive James Elston added: “Working with schools to involve children with the Wildcats is of high importance to us and it was great to see so many children partaking in the activity.”
