DANCERS braved the rain to break out into dance in a Blackburn street.

The Flashmob group, led by Zuma teacher and head of drama and dance at Ferhurst School, Blackburn, Mark Gill, moved their bodies to the track Forget You.

More than 200 were expected to break into dance at 11.30pm in Church Street, on Saturday.

However, but the rain put a dampener on the numbers and around 30 students from Ferhurst School and Mark’s Zumba classes took part.

Despite the smaller turnout, dozens of shoppers watched the three minute and 24 second routine.

Mark said: “We rocked it and the rain stopped as we were doing it.”

Claire Hepple, 20, from Darwen, said: “It went well.”
