Record Breakers

There’s not much that can get me out of bed and into central London before 10am on a Bank Holiday Monday, but I may have found just the thing. Would I like to win a 5-night holiday for two to Las Vegas? Er, yes please! What do I have to do for a chance of a week of more sparkle than I can physically handle? Apparently I just have to join an attempt to break the World Record for the Largest Burlesque Dance. OK, so it’s a big publicity stunt for that movie and Virgin Holidays, but could actually be rather a fun day, weather permitting.

If you fancy coming along, it’s on Monday 3rd January 2011 and you will need to register between 09.00 and 09.30 in the ballroom at The Grand, 8 Northumberland Avenue (next to Trafalgar Square, nearest tube Piccadilly Circus, Charing Cross or Embankment). The day will then kick off with a photoshoot in Trafalgar Square. The record attempt will be filmed for online publicity and they say ‘dress to impress’, so I’m hoping it’s a hell of a lot warmer then than it is today! What are the chances of that though, eh? All participants will be required to perform a simple 5 minute routine which will be taught beforehand in a burlesque masterclass with choreographer Sharon Kay from Burlesque Baby.
