Hundreds of folk performers in Mexico have danced their way into the record books.

The dancers in Guadalajara set a new Guinness World Record for the largest number of dancers to take to the floor at the same time with 457 dancers and 300 mariachi musicians.

Organizers said their next attempt at breaking a world record will be the largest number of people drinking tequila at the same time.
