Achenzie, 22, and Greg Goletz, 19, jumped and jived for eight hours and 15 minutes on a Dance Dance Revolution dancing machine at Carmike Cinemas off Airport Road, Hanover Township, Lehigh County. Dancers step on any of four directional arrows to the beat of music.
As the machine called out "You are too cool," Achenzie and Goletz showed they were too hip-hop to be square. They shuffled to the steps of blue and pink arrows. They jumped and spun. They drank gallons of bottled water and tried not to think about using the men's room.
