Srushti Sudhir Jagtap, a 16-year-old girl from India, has broken the record for the longest dance marathon by a person with a time of 127 hours, breaking the previous mark of 126 hours set by Nepalese dancer Bandana Nepal in 2018.
The Guinness World Record Official Adjudicator, Swapnil Dangarikar, stated that the dance marathon was held in her school auditorium, which was packed with supporters and her parents.
Jagtap began the marathon dance on Monday, May 29, and finished on Saturday, June 3 in the afternoon.
To reach the record, a recognized dancing style must be performed to a just standard, and the participant’s feet must be moving to the music at all times, according to GWR on Wednesday.
Jagtap performed Kathak, one of the eight basic styles of Indian classical dance.
She prepared for her record attempt for 15 months. Baban Mane, her grandfather, trained her.
Jagtap slept or talked to her parents much of the time after midnight.
