The event was part of a dance-themed festival
organised by BBC Blast, which provides opportunities for teenagers
and young adults.
Hosted by Strictly Come Dancing's Erin Boag, it encouraged
hundreds of young people to break several world records including
the largest number of couples jiving simultaneously and largest
number of street dance moves in 60 seconds.
Organisers said the weather had put many people off,
with attendance down on the 10,000 who took part last year
but said they were hopeful of breaking all the records.
Strictly Come Dancing judge Bruno Tonioli was at the
event and said: "It's a great event. It's wonderful to inspire
people to dance in their own way."
