Ballet Dancers Break Record In Central Park (PHOTOS)

Hundreds of ballerinas scampered to Central Park's Naumburg Bandshell to break a world record.

Some 230 ballet dancers stood en pointe for one minute and seven seconds. That beat the previous record of 220 dancers.

American Ballet Theatre principal dancers Michele Wiles and Craig Salstein spearheaded the attempt, which helped raise donations for the Kips Bay Boys and Girls Club.
