Organizers of the dance Thursday in DeLand, part of the Florida Hospital DeLand's Downtown DeLand 50th Birthday Bash, said more than 4,000 people grooved to the 71-year-old singer's hit song to break the Largest Twist Dance world record, which was previously set at 1,706 by a North Carolina group in 2011, the Orlando Sentinel reported Tuesday.
The dance went on for the five minutes required to qualify as a Guinness World Record, organizers said.
Guinness said it must review the evidence of the record and verify an official headcount before the record can be certified.
