Line dancing record – level 2
China broke another Guinness World Record. Twenty-five thousand, seven hundred and three people line danced. 17,000 people in Atlanta set the previous world record in 2007.
Elsewhere in Shanghai, people tried to smash the title for the most people to eat breakfast in bed. In London, there was the largest meeting of people who dressed as penguins. And in France, dancers broke the record for the largest number of can-can kicks in 30 seconds.
Difficult words: elsewhere (at some other place), smash (beat), can-can (a dance during which women line up and kick their legs high).
You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.
