Getting Physical

Look out Christchurch! The RHB Dance troupe is coming to town – in their leotards! RHB = Real Hot Bitches and these girls are on a mission. They’re out to break a world record – and in those leotards I’m sure they’ll succeed – for the largest synchronized dance routine the world has seen. It’s all part of The Body Festival – this Friday’s opening event in fact. Prancing about with thousands of others to the tune of Bon Jovi’s 1984 hit “Shot Through the Heart,” this mad Wellington trio is likely to give Cathedral Square a total shake-up – and that’s not a bad thing. You don’t have to be a dancer, you don’t need any finesse or skill of any sort to take part – just a bit of courage and a sense of humour. Last year they inspired over 2,000 people to flaunt themselves to Bon Jovi tunes during Wellington’s Cuba Street Carnival. It goes without saying that they’ll be expecting a lot more of Christchurch. Good luck with that girls – tell everyone to wear Canterbury colours and carry a rugby ball and I’m sure you’ll get a great response. Meet in the Square at 5pm Friday 26th for kick-off. I, of course, will be there sans leotard. I’ll be the one with the camera! www.thebody.co.nz www.real-hot-bitches.co.nz
