Dancers from 44 countries gathered in Dublin, Ireland, on the banks of the River Liffey, to set the world record for River Dancing. The first show ever of River Dance was led by New Yorker Jean Butler and she was on hand to lead the dancers that came as far away as Mexico and Japan to attempt the record.

The previous record was held by Nashville, Tennessee when 652 people danced the River Dance in a continuous line, but this past Sunday that record was broken by quite a margin. Dancers from 163 dance schools gathered from 44 countries to set the new record of 1,693 people.  The River Dance is an Irish dance and the people of Ireland are happy the record is now held by their country.
