MTV's 55-Hour Dance Party -- LA

Click here for a flier!

Gay-Straight Alliance Network is joining with MTV and the Online  
Music  Awards  to  help  stop  the  bullying  of  LGBT  students  and  
make  schools  and  communities  safer  for  LGBT  youth.   We're  
participating  in  an  epic  party  that  will  help  raise  money  and  
awareness  throughout  October,  which  is  National  Bullying  
Prevention Month.  So we're calling on you to help us beat the  
Guinness World record for longest dance party!  



Currently, the GUINNESS WORLD RECORD FOR LONGEST DANCE PARTY 
(MARATHON) is 55 hours, set in Ireland in 2006. 



Beginning SATURDAY, 29TH OCTOBER 2011 -- we need your help to beat it! 



The rules are simple. 50 dancers will begin. They must dance continuously for the 
entire duration, only being allowed a 5-minute break per hour. To complete the 
record, after 55 hours, at least 38 dancers must be still standing. 

Now, don't think for a second this record will take place in some dull gymnasium. 
No, for this epic record -- WE'RE TAKING OVER AN ICONIC HOLLYWOOD 
NIGHTCLUB! 

The event will be supported by high profile DJ's -- and since this is the O MUSIC 
AWARDS, you never know which celebrities and musicians may stop by to show their 
support, and even play a set. 

Dancing will begin exactly 54 hours and 15 minutes before the live O Music Awards. 
Then, we'll break the record during the LIVE online show -- which will be seen by 
millions of viewers worldwide! 

The attempt will be judged and presented live during the O Music Awards by 
Guinness World Records -- where if successful, you'll not just be raising money and 
awareness for a deserving cause, you'll be making history.



Guidelines:  

  • Meals, snacks and refreshments will be provided
  • Must be over 18 years
  • Must be available for the full 55 hours, beginning on the morning of Saturday 29th
  • October thru the evening of Monday, 31st October
  • Must be able to bring a positive attitude, lots of energy... and obviously your best dancing skills!
