Students and community members gathered last September to break the Guinness World Record for the most people doing the robot dance at the same place and time. As part of the festivities for Homecoming 2010 and to commemorate the unveiling of UMKC’s new ROObot, about 658 people showed up, unofficially beating the existing record of 429 people set by London’s Whitgift Independent School in May 2010. The dance took place on the field at UMKC’s Stanley Durwood Stadium. Students busted moves choreographed by Conservatory dance students.
