Last night 241 ballerinas of all ages showed up to break the Guiness record for most ballerinas en pointe for one minute in one place. According to the Daily News, dancers from the American Ballet Theatre and the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club were involved in breaking the record—in the end 230 stayed on their toes for the full minute, which is 10 more dancers than the previous record. While records are always so odd and particular, this one did make for a picturesque scene!
One 11-year-old told the paper, "I've always wanted to be in the Guinness Book of World Records. I feel so cool. There are so many dancers here all in one place."
