Students from schools in Dothan, Alabama recently broke the world record for the largest hip hop dance routine. Nearly 2,000 students gathered at a local civic centre and broke the previous record of 1,000 performers, which was set in Japan.
The students spent eight weeks rehearsing the performance, which involved dancing to a mash-up of different hip hop songs. The dance routine was choreographed by Patti Rutland Jazz’s outreach program, a program that offers hip hop classes and other forms of dance lessons to students in Dothan and the surrounding areas.
