Several months ago, thousand of dancers from Mexico gathered to set a record. They all attempted to get in the Guinness Book World Record. During 8 minutes, the dancers have shaken Mexico with the Polynesian sounds.
After the Ukulele World Record Record in April, now is preparing a new World record in Tahiti, the one for the largest number of dancers organized by Makau FOSTER DELCUVELLERIE who holds Tamariki Dance School.
At the moment , they only have fixed the date on January 30th. For the place Makau said “we are currently seeing all the stadiums to know how many people they could host in”. The goal is to beat Mexico (current record holder).
The Ori Tahiti is very appreciated all over the World, whether in Mexico, Japan, the USA, Hawaii, even in Finland and Italia.
The mexicans have launched the challenge but it’s so important that the record holder is Tahiti to show that the Ori Tahiti belongs to the French Polynesia and not elsewhere.
Makau F.D hopes to gather more than 3000 persons to hold this record but if it have more, it’s better!
The Guinness Book of records have already sent the rules: all the dancers must wear a “pareo”, a crown flowers, a ti leaf skirt, a stamped event t-shirt. It will only last 8 minutes, but everyone must know how to dance and the choreographies. If it have one person who doesn’t know the dance, he or she won’t be count in the total.
The choreographies will be filmed this week and broadcast as soon as possible on social networks then everyone will have thee possibility to repeat from home. It will only have “Ote’a” for the instant, but they are trying to see if they can insert an easy “Aparima”.
