Wirral dancers needed for college Tapathon
10:27am Monday 15th October 2012 in News
WIRRAL Metropolitan College is inviting dancers from all over the borough to tap, step and shuffle into the record books.
The college is taking part in the nationwide Tapathon on Sunday, November 18 – and the aim is to get the greatest number of people performing the same tap routine at the same time all over the country.
The current record stands at 7,596 tappers. Wirral Met’s Twelve Quays campus in Birkenhead will be the venue and organiser Sarah Norris, dance tutor in the college’s performing arts department, is hoping for a massive turnout.
Sarah said: "Individual dancers or dance schools can take part and there’s no age limit.
"All you need is a pair of tap shoes and the ability to follow a simple routine." The Tapathon will run from noon to 2pm with the first hour as practice. Sarah is also planning workshops to learn the routine.
The event is being organised on a national scale by The Performers Project, a not for profit community entertainment events organisation.
Registration fee is £10 per dancer, with each participant being supplied with a commemorative Tapathon t-shirt.
A donation from each registration will go to Children in Need. To register, contact Sarah Norris by email at email@example.com before this Friday, October 19.
