YOUNG people from the borough showed off their funky dance moves at the country's seat of power.
Students from Claremont High School in Claremont Avenue, Kenton, attended the Houses of Parliament with MP for Brent North, Barry Gardiner, to take part in an event hosted by the Speaker of the House, John Bercow.
The pupils were accompanied by charity 'Dance for Life' in a dance workshop at the Speaker's House, in the event, which aimed to raise awareness of HIV and AIDS particularly in developing countries.
Ramone O'Sullivan, 15, said: "It was a very good experience and excellent fun. It made us realise how many people actually suffer from AIDS and how many people actually support AIDS charities. Even little kids got involved."
Charlotte Nabavian, 15, added: "It was good that we went to parliament as it shows that the government support AIDS issues. It encourages us to get up and get dancing.
"It was great fun and more schools should get involved."

Barry Gardiner, MP for Brent North, said: "I was hugely proud of them, they were great.
"They've all been involved in Dance for Life before so they understood what it was all about - global poverty, HIV, AIDS, and other problems in poorer countries.
"At one stage I did think that the Speaker might have difficulty in evicting them from the living room!
