They held three sessions at Tendring Technology College’s Thorpe campus encouraging year seven, eight and nine pupils to stay safe while surfing the web.
As well as performing they got some of the students to dance with them on stage.
Gail Lewis, senior assistant principal at the school, said: “It was electric, you could really feel the energy from the extremely vibrant dancing.
