Budget airlines generally have a reputation of not having enough room to swing a cat.

However, a dance group has proved there's enough space to swing dance on a Ryanair flight by performing a toe-tapping routine at 35,000 ft.

The Milan-based group Golden Swing Society was on a flight from Vilnius in Lithuania to Milan, Italy when they treated other passengers to an improvised shim sham, a tap dance routine.

An announcement was made over the plane's speakers by a member of the group, before everyone started dancing in the aisles of the Boeing 737-800.


While some passengers enjoyed the spectacle and joined in, others didn't look that impressed.

However, the dancers received a rousing round of applause at the end of their routine, which was sure to have brought a bit of excitement to the two-hour flight.

The group was returning to Milan after a weekend performing abroad.
