Dance World Records

Dance world records feature all different styles of dance, from the Twist to the Worm to go-go and the Macarena. If you've put in hours of practice doing tap, ballet, jazz or ballroom dancing, here's the place to show it off. If you're not a seasoned performer, it doesn't matter - just gather some friends and rave with glow sticks or crank the car stereo and groove in a parking lot.
