Want to have a good time dancing and be a part of a world record at the same time? Then join the University of Wyoming Cowboy Country Swing Club as it attempts to break the Guinness world record for the world’s largest swing dance Thursday, April 30, at 8 p.m. at UW’s War Memorial Fieldhouse.

Check-in for the free event is at 7:30 p.m., with music by Chancey Williams and the Younger Brothers Band. Cowboy Country Swing Club President Hunter Perala says the current swing dance record is 756 participants, considerably more dancers than the 250 or so who participate in the club’s Thursday night outings with live bands in the Wyoming Union Ballroom.

“We provide free lessons from 8-9 p.m., and free open dancing from 9-11 p.m.,” Perala says. “Everyone has a great time. We are one of the largest recognized student organizations on campus.”
