306 dancers surpass record 245
“Record Breaker Week” on “Live with Kelly and Ryan” continued to set the “barre” Tuesday morning with yet another record-breaking attempt. In a remarkable display of athletic achievement, hundreds of dancers took over the street outside the studio, earning a new Guinness World Records title for “Most ballet dancers en pointe simultaneously.”
Principal dancers from American Ballet Theatre James Whiteside and Isabella Boylston led the way, and New York City Ballet principal dancers Tiler Peck, Lauren Lovette and Maria Kowroski also joined hosts Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest for the event. “Live” danced its way into the record books as 306 participants – including Ripa herself – rose to the occasion and went en pointe for a full minute, beating the previous record of 245.
