The University of Oregon Acrobatics & Tumbling Team have gone viral online for their "Flawless" dance routine in a busy airport.

The University of Oregon Acrobatics & Tumbling Team arrived at the San Francisco International Airport to fly home only to be told that the plane "wasn't quite ready".

Thirteen hours later, four bored students decided to practice a dance routine one of them had learned on Instagram - on a moving travelator.

Erika, Brook, Jalen and Nicole danced to Beyoncé's 'Flawless' and a clip of the girls has now racked up over 300,000 notes on micro-blogging site Tumblr.

Speaking to Yahoo News, Jalen Kirkland said the team were just trying to pass the time after their flight was delayed.

"After 13 hours in the airport, we decided to have some fun, and that’s how that video was made. We knew there were a few bystanders videoing us all around the airport, but we had NO idea the video would get so much attention!”
