Dancing has always been a standard hobby or fad or past time of Nigerians - call it whatever. After all, we set the Dance Record in the Guinness Book of Records for................................ (wait for it):


By the grace of God, we will enter for more things (serious things) soon - Amen.

But that is quite impressive - read more on Medal's Blog here.

I have an excerpt from the blog:

But they made it. Sweating and panting like a mad dog, the Zebra group eventually breasted the tape. They broke the world dance record and thus made history as the new titleholders of the Guinness Book of World Records. It all happened in the early hours of Nigeria’s 46th Independence at the Nokia Danceathon held at the Silverbird Studios in Lagos where a group of young Nigerians were crowned with a new dance party record of 53 hours 50 minutes that would go into the Guinness Book of World Records for the world’s longest dance party.The event began at 6.00pm on Friday, September 29, 2006. Before setting the new record at four minutes past midnight on Monday, October 2, the team, at exactly 10.14pm on Sunday night had erased former world record of 52 hours 3 minutes set by the Heart Health Hop of the United States at a contest that began on July 31, 2003.

Nigeria (Lagos/Abuja in particular), is becoming very acquainted with dance classes. The Society of Performing Arts ( for instance, gives details of dance techniques and dance classes such as:

**Ballet and Fitness Dance Class for kids ages 4-10**

**Lagos Loves Latin Dance and Africando Music**

This club is for beginners, intermediate and advance dancers and also people generally fascinated with the world of Latin dance especially in Nigeria.

Venue: Flamingo


Classes and Venue: Tuesdays & Saturdays - La casa, Ozumba Mbadiwe (between Caverton and the Civic centre) 7 pm - 10pm

You must be sexually excited for Generic Viagra to work. If you take Generic Viagra UK and are not sexually stimulated, you will not get an erection. Generic blue pill is not a hormone. It is also not an hrodisiac. It's a prescription medicine that gives men with ED harder erections so they can enjoy a better sex life.
