" About 3,400 revellers attempted to dance their way into the record books yesterday at a street festival to celebrate racial and religious harmony in Punggol. The students and residents appear to have smashed the Guinness World Record for the largest number of cha-cha-cha dancers in one place. The record is currently held by 3,270 Polish dancers, who sashayed together three years ago. London-based Guinness will annouce in six weeks' time whether the Singaporeans succeeded. "

" Amongst the dancers were Mr Kasmil Redha and his wife Nur Ain. The couple, both 33, were at Edgefield Primary School, the dance's organiser, on Sunday afternoon to learn the steps since they were dancing the cha-cha for the first time, together with their two children, seven-year-old Dani Hazwan and eight-year-old Danish Haqiq. The couple, whose children are both studying at the school, said they were happy to participate since " Sunday is for spending with our children anyway. "
