In 1932 the country was in the midst of the great depression.  Options for individuals were limited.  Being unemployed, Callum DeVillier decided to enter a marathon dance competition.  Callum lasted over six months and eventually won the prize and  achieved the world record.  Obviously the dancing was not completely continuous.  The competitors were allowed bathroom, food, and sleep breaks.  The following year these types of dance competitions were outlawed in New York because of the incredible lengths and physical abuse people went through to win them.   Callum DeVillier now dances in perpetuity in Lakewood Cemetery in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
