(AP) Almost 300 dancers who strutted, shimmied and shook their way down a Soul Train line set a world record earlier this year in Philadelphia.


Guinness World Records has certified February's Soul Train line outside the Philadelphia Museum of Art as the world's longest.


Two hundred ninety-one dancers took a hip trip between the two lines of swaying participants, breaking the old record of 211 dancers set at a California high school last year.


The Philadelphia Inquirer (http://bit.ly/T509xX ) reports organizers Sheila Simmons received confirmation of the record from Guinness on Monday.


Simmons says the record-setting attempt was inspired by the death of longtime Soul Train host Don Cornelius on Feb. 1.
