Diversity choreographer Ashley Banjo has taken part in Text Santa, a charity initiative with ITV1 to create a special dance routine filmed for television.

The Text Santa choreography was created as part of a Guinness World Record attempt that took place at the end of November at The Kia Oval Cricket Ground, Vauxhall, London, for the ‘Largest Gathering of People Dressed As Santa Claus.’

The routine of people dancing to the Text Santa dance choreography to Santa Clause is Coming to Town in Father Christmas costume was filmed for ITV1’s Text Santa fundraising appeal.
