Dancers set world record in Dublin

Okay I admit I didn’t know Riverdance was a style of dancing. I thought it was merely the name of a programme by Michael Flatley. So I feel educated now. LOL Good for all these people to be a part of a World Record!

Irish dancers have set a world record in Dublin for the longest Riverdance line.

More than 2,000 people from 163 dance schools in 44 countries gathered on the banks of the River Liffey on Sunday.

The previous record of 652 people dancing in a continuous line was held by Nashville, Tennessee in the United States.

Dancers from as far away as Mexico, Uzbekistan and Japan took part.

The Dublin performance was led by New Yorker Jean Butler, the lead dancer in the first ever show of Riverdance in 1994.
