      “I am part of history.”

            More than 16, 000 participants wearing white shirts with this      statement danced their way to a new world record on March 18 at City of Balanga (COB).

            As cited in Philippine Daily Inquirer, the Guiness World Record officially declared COB as the new holder for the largest dance fitness class in a single venue with 16, 218 participants breaking the previous record of Mexico with only 6, 639 participants.

Kimberley Dennis, Guiness World Record adjudicator handed a plaque to Governor Albert Garcia, Mayor Joet Garcia and other local officials, after the said number of participants finished a 37-minute dance exercise with synchronized steps.

The said event aims to        promote healthy lifestyle and        anti-smoking campaign which is a city advocacy towards achieving a Tobacco Free Generation.

Among the participants were TES pupils, teachers and principal who said that the event was very    tiring but at the same time fulfilling.

“I am very happy that I         became part of the history.  The sweat was all worth it,” said one of the pupils.
