To help kick-off the campaign to get people involved the team from BBC Hereford & Worcester and Pudsey visited Sixways to get the Warriors enjoying some belly dancing during the morning warm-up!
As a form of exercise, belly dancing can burn as many calories as light jogging, swimming or riding a bike and is becoming increasingly popular, with classes popping up all over the two counties. The current record stands at 267 people at the University of Pécs in Hungary in September 2005.
BBC Hereford & Worcester don't want to just break it - they want to break it big time and are looking for 500 people to take part, women, children and men, aged 8-80 and you don't need to have any experience of Belly Dancing. Expert Tina Hobin has come up with a very simple 30-second routine - anyone can do it. You don't even need a costume - just some comfortable clothing and maybe the trademark Belly Belt to take part.
All you have to do is to perform this routine non-stop for five minutes - it's a simple as that, so easy infact, that Pudsey himself will be taking part.
Sign up now and commit to being part of this record breaking attempt and do your bit for this years Children in Need appeal. A DVD of the routine is available so you can get familiar with it before the big day, or log onto bbc.co.uk/herefordandworcester and learn it online. Don't worry if you can't though, Tina and her team will be on hand before to take us all through our paces.
The attempt will take place at Malvern Theatres at noon on November 8 and registration opens at 9.30am. BBC Hereford & Worcester will have showcase performances in the foyer beforehand and a stall selling Belly Dancing accessories.
