Saturday morning at Enslen Park, children under the age of 15 are invited to join the city of Modesto and In-Shape Health Clubs in an attempt to set a world record for the largest Zumbatomic class.
Zumbatomic is a form of Zumba dance aerobics for kids under 15. The current record is 383 children, and In-Shape is aiming for 400-plus.
The group will be required to perform a series of routines presented by a Zumba-certified instructor over the course of 30 minutes.
"This is our first attempt," In-Shape's Angel Chere said about trying to break the record. "Interest has been good. Lots of people have been asking what they need to do to join in. What they need to do is show up."
Registration will begin at 9 a.m. at the park, 501 Stoddard Ave. There is no fee, but a $1 donation to the Modesto Parks, Recreation and Neighborhoods Department is suggested.
In addition to the Zum- batomic routines, which will run from 10 to 10:30, the morning will include gifts and prizes.
There will be vendors, a bounce house, a DJ and a remote radio broadcast, Chere said. Each child who participates will receive a T-shirt and a coupon for a free sandwich from Togo's.
"We are very excited to have some fun in the park and break a world record," Rob Farrens, chief marketing officer of In-Shape, said in a news release. "It's a cool opportunity for our members and the community to make history."
