Members of the Bishop Grosseteste University Students’ Union (BGSU) Dance Society have once again participated in a World Record Attempt Tapathon in support of Children in Need raising over £1000 in the process.

The aim of the annual Tapathon is to see how many dancers can perform the same tap routine at the same time across the UK. In the build up to the event two of the society’s executive members, Society President Keeley Pearson and Secretary Evie Elliott, learnt the official routine before teaching it to their members.

21 members of the dance society took part in the event beginning rehearsal in late September, giving them just over six weeks to learn the routine. During these six weeks, members used their sponsorship forms to collect as many funds as possible for Children in Need. In the 2018 Tapathon the society raised £587.50 and so they set themselves a challenge of £700 for the 2019 edition.

Speaking after the event Emily Gray, BGSU Dance Society Treasurer, described how the day unfolded and praised the efforts of her fellow dancers:

“When the day of the Tapathon arrived, everyone was very excited. We got rehearsals underway, having a couple of run throughs before the event started, to ensure we could perform the routine perfectly. After the fifteen-minute call, we all got into place and then performed the routine twice to verify the Tapathon attempt. All of our members danced perfectly and everyone had a smile on their face.

The sponsorship money was counted during our performance and we are pleased to announce that we raised an incredible £1275 for Children in Need.

As a society, we have raised enough money for at least eight young carers for a whole month of play therapy, six disabled children to get physiotherapy while in school, as well as ten young children to get a whole school year worth of free school meals. BGSU Dance society have helped children in the UK in great amounts from the money we have raised.

As an executive team, we would like to give a special mention to one member in particular for the amount of money she raised for Children in Need – Emily Green, a 3rd year BGU student, managed to raise £167 alone. This is such an amazing amount of money and we are so proud of her, along with all of our other participating members.”

Bishop Grosseteste University would also like to take the opportunity to praise the members of the Dance Society as £1275 is a fantastic amount to be raised by a group of young students.

BGSU offer a wide range of diverse societies to match any interest (and will happily support you to start a new one). You can find more information on all of them on their website or you can meet them in person on our December Open Day.
