536 Dancers Break Guinness Record For Longest Soul Train Line
BET broke a Guinness World Record in New York by recruiting 536 people to dance in the world's longest Soul Train line.
The line that danced through Marcus Garvey Park in Harlem included original dancers from the iconic “Soul Train” and hundreds of local residents.
A Guinness official was on hand to ensure participants followed the record-keeping organization's rules. They were required to dance in pairs for at least 40-feet to qualify as a soul train.
Guinness confirmed the line featured 536 dancers, enough to take the record from Goodyear Ballpark in Arizona, which convened a Soul Train line of 426 dancers in 2014.
