Caracas, Nov 27 (EFE).- More than 2,000 Venezuelan dancers gathered at the National Sports Institute in Caracas on Sunday aiming to break the Guinness world record for the largest salsa casino circle.
“These Venezuelan dancers (…) have had an important preparation, since they have been rehearsing their dance formations for more than six months,” Luis LLamo, president of the international project ‘Retomando el Son’, told EFE.
He further added that a total of 2,040 dancers between the ages of 7 and 65 years – from 102 dance academies of Venezuela – participated in the salsa circle.
The participants performed salsa for about 11 minutes while being supervised by witnesses, who later reported the same along with videos to the Guinness records jury in New York, which is yet to announce the result.
Llamo also confirmed that this target was set a year ago, adding that they were able to enlist all the dancers and academies using seminars, tutorials and classes.
“Venezuela (…) is the best prepared country, it is the most disciplined, where the directors, delegates, and coordinators have given their best, in a rigorous manner, with the aim of achieving this,” Llamo added.
He also said that if Venezuela manages to secure the record, which is currently held by Spain, they will try to break it once again in July 2023, in order to show the country’s “real potential to the world.” EFE
