A new Guinness world record has been set for the biggest choreographed dance. This was after a total of 30,000 people danced simultaneously for a period of five minutes and forty seconds. These dancers were from six different cities, namely Shanghai, Beijing, Xi’an, Guangzhou, Chengdu, and Shenyang.

The dancers could be spotted in their respective cities participating in the dance. For example, more than 5,000 dancers were participating in the dance in Shanghai, and not even the rain could hinder their moves on Saturday. Those dancers were dressed in rain coats to protect themselves from the heavy downpour.

Elsewhere, in Shenyang in Liaoning Province, 5,000 dancers participated in the event. Those from Beijing also took to the square on Saturday to stretch out and make the choreography moves.

The dancers were comprised of both men and women from different walks of life and different ages. They all came together with one aim in mind, to form the greatest choreography dance group in the world, and true to it, they achieved their goal and became the Guinness World Book record holders of the largest choreographic dance group.

It is not clear whose idea this was, but all the participants put in a lot of effort, time, and dedication to the endeavor, and that is the main reason for their success. It was also a sign of unity among the Chinese people from the different cities – truly a positive picture sent out to the world.

It will be very hard to beat this record, but let’s wait and see. You never know.
