Kuchipidi in Cupertino Sets World Record

While group dances involving hundreds of people are not unheard of—just think of festivals and carnivals—what’s interesting about the Kuchipudi event in Cupertino, California, is that it won an entry in the Guinness World Records. The challenge for the 328 participants gathered there from across the world was to do a continuous, perfectly coordinated dance on a flat stage for over five minutes. They did it for eight and a half minutes. The dancers, representing five generations, ranged widely in age. Organized by a nonprofit cultural group called Silicon Andhra, this recent feat was part of an International Kuchipudi Dance Convention held in the United States. Following the convention, which attracted about 2000 people, Cupertino’s mayor led a Kuchipudi Shobha Yatra on the streets of the city. “In 2010, the organization seeks to better their current record during a visit to India, where they plan to host their next International Kuchipudi Convention,” according to the Guinness World Records.
