with the bar set in johannesburg (albeit unofficially as far as the guinness book) at 90, arthritis scotland steps up and raises the bar to 134: Belly dancers create world record [bbc, website 2005.10.30]
Belly dancers in Scotland have shaken their way to a new world record.
A group of 134 dancers from across the world converged on Nairn where their five-minute routine gave them an entry in the Guinness Book of Records.
The event was the brainchild of local councillor and keen belly dancer Liz MacDonald, 43, who sent DVDs of the routine to a variety of groups.
She said: “It was fantastic. We were all in our sparkly belly dancing costumes so it was really colourful.”
