Line dancing record – level 3

19-11-2014 07:00

Twenty-five thousand, seven hundred and three people have set a new line dance Guinness World Record in China.

The participants were split into 17 different places in Hangzhou City before the challenge began.

And it was a triumph – they successfully smashed the Guinness World Record for the world’s largest line dance, overtaking the last world record of 17,000 participants in Atlanta, Georgia in 2007.

Elsewhere in Shanghai, people tried to smash the title for the most people eating breakfast in bed.

In London, there was the largest gathering of people dressed as penguins and in France, dancers broke the record for the largest number of can-can kicks in 30 seconds.

Difficult words: participant (a person who is part of something), triumph (success), smash (beat), gathering (meeting), can-can (a high-kicking stage dance).
