During the interval of the Clydesdale Bank 40 final on Saturday over 500 young people from schools across the country will perform a mass movement dance on the Lord's outfield.

In partnership with the Pro-Excel "Move It" project, the children aged 8-18 will perform a unique choreographed dance routine, in the largest ever mass movement dance event to take place at the home of cricket.

The children from Lancashire, Yorkshire, Somerset, Hampshire, Bridgwater, Nottinghamshire, and Surrey, have worked tirelessly in recent weeks to design and construct the stunning show.

The students taking part have worked for just a few intense days each under the guidance of Pro-Excel's senior choreographic team, who have recreated an industry environment.

During the morning of the final, the group of dancers will be rehearsing together as a whole group for the very first time in the indoor cricket school.

The ECB and MCC recognise the importance of engaging communities in the game in all ways possible, and are delighted to welcome the children to Lord's to perform.
