The Art of Living has entered the Guinness Book of Records for a Mohiniyattam dance organised in Cochin last year - that saw 1,200 female dancers perform together.

The performance has been awarded the world record for the most people performing a Mohiniyattam dance, the traditional Kerala dance form, an Art of Living statement said Monday.

The citation issued by Guinness states: "The current record for Most People Performing a Mohiniyattam Dance is 1,200 at a performance held as part of the Silver Jubilee celebrations of the Art of Living Foundation at the Jawaharlal Nehru International Stadium in Cochin, Kerala, on Nov 28, 2006."

Performing together for the first time, the dancers enchanted a gathering of over 100,000 people with their depiction of feminine moods and emotions.
