Thousands of people are expected to shimmy their way to Parc y Scarlets, Llanelli’s rugby stadium, at 7pm on August 19 to join the attempt to break the world record for the largest number of participants in a Zumba class.
As the popularity of Zumba spreads like wildfire, a growing number of record attempts are taking place across the world. The current record, set in Texas, stands at 1,223 and the team at Parc y Scarlets hopes to be the first to beat this record with Zumba instructor Tina Tracey leading the huge class.
For £10 per person, the class will comprise a 30-minute monitored routine, plus an optional one-hour masterclass. A percentage of ticket sales will be donated to the Ray Gravell and Friends Charitable Trust, which supports hundreds of charities throughout West Wales.
Participants will receive a complimentary bottle of water, a commemorative t-shirt and a match ticket to any Scarlets home fixture in 2011/12. For more information and an application form, contact Julie David on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 07970 601 582. All participants must register in advance of the attempt. Please note that all participants must be aged 12 or over.
