The Guinness World Records' record for the largest bamboo dance (Cheraw) was achieved by 10,736 dancers during an event organised by the Government of Mizoram, in Aizawl, Mizoram, India, on 12 March 2010.
Guinness World Records also recognized the world record for the largest Polka dance; it featured 802 dancers and was achieved by Banater Schwaben Crailsheim (Germany) at the Hirtenwiesenhalle in Crailsheim, Germany, on 29 June 2013. Horsham Rural City Councillor Mark Radford said 256 dancers between the ages of six and 90, participated in the attempt.
Cr Radford said the organisers were not taking any chances in their bid for a world record, with months of planning having gone into the event.
To qualify, dancers had to earn a 'Nutbush card', which demonstrated they knew the correct moves and could dance for a full five minutes and 15 seconds.
The event doubled as a fundraiser for the redevelopment of the Horsham Town Hall.
