Great!, Mme. Hermine. Congratulations to all. When I first heard of this, I didn't realize that there actually was a little choreography involved. As the young woman said at the end of the clip: "It's painful, but it's worth it, I think."

How cute, hooray for all. (My city competes for the GWW largest public breakfast servings every year--We've won several times, but sometimes Kellogs beats us.)
I suspect the choreography for this event was so everyone could stay on pointe for long enough to tally results. Remaining in a single position without moving for the minutes to do this would have probably been more difficult for the 'nonprofessionals' (or very young dancers) participating.
