A FLASH mob broke out in Worthing when 170 drama students descended on the town centre.
Students from Steyning Ariel Drama Academy were promoting the new Worthing Ariel Drama Academy, due to open in February.
The spontaneous flash mob was kept as a surprise, so shoppers were not expecting the large-scale dance witnessed this afternoon.

The students were also collecting for the Angus Rowland ForgetMeNot Fund, raising money for leukaemia and lymphoma research.
