Nearly 500 teenagers from 26 countries have staged a huge clog dance in The Netherlands in a bid to win a place in the Guinness Book of World Records.
The teenagers learned the dance in their own countries
They performed a modern ballet version of the traditional Dutch clog dance in The Hague on Saturday.
The work - Clogs - is a ballet by the Dutch choreographer Hans van Manen.
The youngsters performed it in oversized, rough wooden Dutch clogs, or "klompen" at the 10th Dance and the Child International Conference.
A total of 475 young people learned the dance in their home countries - including Israel, Finland and Jamaica.
Organiser Martina van Dijk said the idea was to see how the dancers adapted to the clogs.
"We thought that would be real fun - to let them all dance in clogs - and they're not comfortable at all, I can tell you, so we had a lot of complaints about that.
"We had a lot of teachers teaching these children all week."
One Canadian student brushed off the discomfort.
"It's fun to learn another culture's dance - it's fun to be in the NL. When in Rome do as the Romans, when in The Netherlands do as The Netherlands does. Go Dutch - clogs!"
Ms van Dijk said the Guinness Book of World Records had accepted the entry, performed as part of the conference's closing ceremony, and hoped the record would be confirmed.
