The Norwich Rising flashmob festival will take place at the Forum next Thursday at 1pm.

They practised the campaign dance with Zumba’s Sarah Yendell from North Walsham during their lunch break.

Norwich Rising is part of the international campaign One Billion Rising, inspired by UN research that found that one in three women and girls worldwide are raped or violently assaulted in their lifetime.

Kerrie Fisher, head of performing arts at the academy, said: “Dance 
is a powerful form 
of self-expression and 
we know that taking 
part in the event will boost our pupils’ confidence, and their pride in themselves and their bodies.”
