Dance School Attempts to Break Largest Online Dance Class to Raise Money for the NHS

A dance school in England is attempting to break a Guinness World Record by inviting people from all over the world to join and participate in the world’s largest online dance class.

Done For You Dance, the group that own Elite Dance School in Bicester, England is hoping to break the record for most participants taking an online jazz dance class in 24 hours.

The attempt will be held via a Youtube class that needs to be viewed at least 2,000 times over the course of 24 hours to qualify for the title.

The record attempt coincides with National Nurses Day and the school with raise money for the NHS

“My pupils are really missing their dance classes due to the coronavirus lockdown. I wanted to show our gratitude to the NHS so I thought about what challenge I could set to get them and other dancers involved in a joint experience,” Done For You Dance owner Hayley Byrd said.

“A virtual dance class is fun and suitable for everyone to join in. We’re asking for donations from participants and local businesses to help pay for the world record attempt and whatever else we raise on top will be donated to the NHS. So the more we raise, the better.”
