Dancers attempt to break tap world record
PUBLISHED: 14:00 01 December 2019
Young dancers from Nailsea took part in a mammoth tap dance in a bid to beat the Guinness World Record.
Bedford Performers, comprising of dancers from the Jazz On Tap Dance Company, joined people from across the nation for the Children in Need Tapathon in November.
It is the 10th year of the challenge which aims to get the most people documented dancing the same tap routine at the same time, twice through.
Forty-five dancers aged four to 70 took part in Nailsea and this year the participants performed a routine to Take That's Out Of Our Heads.
The current record stands at 7,596 people tap dancing at one time and the group is waiting to hear back from organisers about the final count from other parts of the country.
Michelle Bedford, principal of Jazz On Tap Dance Company, offers classes for children in ballet, tap, modern and showdance and adults in ballet, tap and jazz.
Their next production is at the Scotch Horn Centre in Nailsea in March 2020.
