On Saturday February 2nd, (a rainy, cold and foggy summer's day!), a world record was smashed in Leura Mall. 285 dancers, dressed in 1920s outfits, danced the Charleston for 5 minutes non stop. Leura Mall was closed off, jazzy music blared from the speakers and the street was lined with bemused spectators.The Charleston Dance Off beat the world record set in Slovenia in 2009!!
I am sure I saw Daisy Buchanan, Lady Julia Flyte, Phryne Fisher, Al Capone and Buster Keaton kicking their heels up.
Get ready for next year's challenge - the first Saturday in February 2014.
