A salsa dancing group made up of some 1,500 young people assembled on November 25 in Havana’s world-famous Malecón, the esplanade along the coast of the capital.
(Soundbite) Juan Gomez, Participant of Record Intention
“This is a challenge that I imagine won’t stop (until we win). This will continue with massive participation.”
During the 15-minute session, the participants danced on four topics of salsa in order to break the Guinness Record set in Greece in 2014, when 1,102 dancers performed in rotation for around 7 minutes non-stop.
The validity of the challenge is still needed to be confirmed by the Guinness Committee.
Salsa is a Latin-style dance which is extremely popular in Cuba and helps express the joy and wildness of the island residents.
