Break out your dancing shoes and nice underwear. The radio station WXRY99.3, called The Independent Alternative, is joining forces with Trustus Theatre to try to set a dancing record.

Organizers hope to set a world record for the largest dance group to ever do "The Time Warp" - it will require about 5,000 people which may be why none of those involved is mentioning a number.Still it should be fun and prizes will be awarded for best costumes and group dancing.The event takes place at Trustus, which seats about 100, Saturday, July 4 around 6 p.m. And remember - it's the pelvic rock that really drives you insane
