A Dundalk based pole dancing fitness club has just received confirmation that its members were successful in their Guinness World Record bid for the most people demonstrating pole sports across various locations. The founder of Polercise and a teacher of pole dancing classes in Dundalk, El Fegan, choreographed the World Record attempt.
“I choreographed the routine for the event and local girls from Dundalk Polercise all took part along with 56 other locations across the world,” said El.
The previous world record stood at 206 people and was originally set in 2006 by KT Coates with the help of 26 pole studios across the world. Polercise was the only school in Ireland having taken part at the time and raised £50,000 for cancer charities.
“This time 494 people broke our original World Record and we managed to raise over £26,300 for Cancer charities,” said El, “That will take us over £100,000 of money raised over the last 10 years.”
The event took place at the Polercise studio in Williamsons Mall and studios in over 21 different countries including the UK, Australia USA, South Africa, China and The Netherlands.
All proceeds raised were in aid of cancer charities around the world. Each studio has individually chosen which specific cancer charity to donate their money to.
