Today, a group of tap dancers from SK Dance Studio in Appley Bridge, Wigan, attempted to break the World Record for the biggest ever tap dance. Along with tap groups from all over the country, SK Dance Studio’s tappers performed a set routine at 1.00pm exactly. It was all part of the Tapathon 2017 event organised by The Performer’s Project.
As well as being a world record attempt, the event was all to raise money for BBC Children in Need. All together, SK Dance Studio and it’s supporters raised at whopping £530 for the charity, via entry fees, a raffle and sale of cakes and refreshments.
Susan Kielb, Principal of SK Dance Studio said “I’m so proud of everyone who has given up their time today. The dancers were all brilliant and we have some fabulous supporters who donated raffle prizes and cakes for our bake sale. All this helped us to our bit for this very worthy charity”.
A selection of dancers from across SK Dance Studio’s classes took part, including some members of the adult tap dance classes, some of whom have been tapping for around 6 months only. What a fabulous achievement!
