A new Guinness World Records title for the Philippines may be just a few grooves away.
In celebration of its 75th Diamond Jubilee anniversary today, the local government of Quezon City, in cooperation with C-Lium Fibre, will attempt to establish a new world record by holding the largest Zumba class outdoor party at the Quezon City Memorial Circle.
“We are happy to announce that our application has been officially noted and accepted by the Guinness organization. In the spirit of unity, we are looking forward to making this event a big, fun-filled celebration for all,” said Quezon City Mayor Herbert Bautista.
Zumba is a dance fitness program developed by Colombian dancer and choreographer Alberto “Beto” Perez in the 1990s. C-Lium Fibre brought to the country Loretta Bates, a Zumba education specialist under the umbrella of Zumba Instructor Network to hold Zumba sessions in Bacolod City on October 4, and at The Playground, Ronac Art Center in San Juan, Metro Manila on October 5.
“Filipinos are amazing. They have that Spanish roots and they are natural great dancer,” said Bates, “Again, I didn’t expect Filipinos to dance so great but I’m really impressed. This is also my third time here in the Philippines. Everybody can dance Zumba even men.”
Bates even recommended Zumba to professional athletes, “Zumba is also good for athletes in terms of proper conditioning. In fact, the Seattle Seahawks are doing Zumba as one of their training programs.”
The Quezon City government and C-Lium are targeting at least 9,000 attendees to actively participate in the one-hour, non-stop dance routine that incorporates Latin music and dynamic dance aerobics.
