… 353, that is a new Guinness world record! Congratulations!

Adjudicator for the Guinness World Records Tina Shi after more than 350 young ballerinas from around the world broke the Guinness World Record for most ballerinas dancing on their tiptoes for an entire minute. The prior record was set in 2019, with 306 dancers.

Big Picture: At New York’s famous Plaza Hotel, hundreds of dancers ages 9 to 19 broke the Guinness World Record for most ballerinas dancing at the same time ‘en pointe’ (on their tiptoes) – considered one of the most challenging moves in ballet. One of record-breakers, 15-year-old Emma Power, said, “I can’t even believe it. I came here to break the record and we did. I feel so proud for everyone.”
