New Guinness World Record
Zig Zag pupils Dave Turner & Katie Walton smashed the Guinness World Record on April 7th for the longest distance ever danced at Hadley Stadium. The record was set in 2003 in the US but Dave & Katie smashed the record after months of training with Warren to set a new record of 5 miles which they completed in 1 hour and 29 minutes which equated to 20 laps of the track. Strict rules governed the record attempt, no stopping and dancing of a sufficiently high level were amongst the rules. Dave and Katie included choreography from the Waltz, Quickstep, Foxtrot and American Smooth. They raised over £1800 for the neo natal unit at Birmingham Women's Hospital and for the Dean and Helen John fund.
