Sunday 10th September 2006 at 2PM
Vertical Dance Pole Fitness School in association with Cancer Research UK, The Guinness Book of World Records and various Pole Schools across the world, have come together to generate awareness for pole dancing as a fitness form, raise a huge amount of money for a fantastic cause and create the first world record in Fitness Pole Dance.Pole Dance is no longer associated with Gentlemen’s clubs, but more synonymous with your local gym or fitness centre. The health and fitness benefits of a pole dance routine are amazing, covering all components of physical fitness such as muscular strength and endurance, flexibility, motor skills and cardio vascular fitness. A high impact pole dance routine can consume between 200 – 350 calories per hour giving the body an all over work out.Pole dancing is one of the most rapidly growing genres in the fitness world, with many thousands of women purchasing their own poles to work out on and new schools opening every week. With this in mind Vertical Dance in conjunction with focus training have now produced the worlds first fitness qualification in Vertical Dance so that an industry standard can be set.The record attempt will include schools from countries such as USA, Canada, Australia, Belgium, France, Ireland and the UK. (Please seewww.verticaldance.com
for a full listing of schools involved). A routine has been choreographed and posted on the Vertical Dance website and each school will learn the 10 minute routine to be performed at exactly 2pm. The record attempt will be recorded and then submitted for approval to Guinness. Currently we have over 200 participants and over 40 venues, with numbers increasing daily. We have both sexes and all ages (over 18) involved showing that this fitness form is not just for young women.
We have chosen to support Cancer Research-UK because cancer is a disease that unfortunately touches every person in one way or another. Every one knows some one that has been affected by the largest killer in the UK. So what better opportunity for us to join the to together and raise the profile of both causes.
