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.
