Cambodia dances to 'The Madison' to break world record
Phnom Penh: A public park here in this Cambodian capital was witness to "The Madison" performed by over a thousand young people in an attempt to break a world record set earlier in France.

"The Madison" is a popular dance carried out during weddings and the Cambodian New Year.

The kingdom's largest Madison dance, performed on Saturday noon here in the country's capital city of Phnom Penh, lasted about five minutes.

Colin Spurway, organizer of the event, said the Guinness World Records recognised the largest Madison dance with 459 participants in Feucherolles, France, on June 18, 2011.

"Now, we try to break that record," he said. "We will send documents and video footage about the dance to the World Record body for consideration."

According to reports, the Madison, a dance that Cambodians have made their own for over 40 years, is particularly popular over Khmer weddings and Khmer New Year celebrations. It originated in the US and France in the 1960s.
