Burnham-On-Sea tap dancers in bid to beat world record!

A group of Burnham-On-Sea dancers took part in an attempt to break a world record on Sunday (October 16th) when they joined a nationwide tap dancing event.

A total of 19 dancers, aged from seven to over 60, participated in the fundraising Tapathon at DanceFit's studios in Love Lane, Burnham.

"We had a great turnout. As soon as we received a text message from the organisers at 12.30pm we performed our dance routine accompanied by James Brown's 'I Feel Good' at the same time as dancers across the country," Victoria Roberts from DanceFit told

"Everyone had a fun time and we expect to have raised £250 for Children In Need from today's event."

The group is having to wait whether the events being held across the UK - and overseen by the nationwide organisers The Performers Project - have been successful in smashing the previous record for the most people tap dancing at the same time. Various checks are underway to assess the numbers taking part.
