Marina Studios BBC Children In Need Tapathon 2021

October 14, 2021

On Sunday 21st November, Marina Studios will be putting their tap dancing shoes on for Pudsey to help break a new world record, while raising money for some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children.

An attempt to break the Guinness World Record for the largest tap dancing event is being planned across the UK in aid of BBC Children in Need, and your help is needed. No matter what your age or tap dancing expertise is, Tapathon 2021 is calling on the British public to get their tap dancing shoes on for Pudsey to help break a new world record, while raising money for some of the UK’s most disadvantaged children.

At hundreds of locations across the UK, Tapathon 2021 will aim to break the Guinness world record for the largest tap dancing event to be held simultaneously at multiple events, which currently stands at 7,596 people. Whether your venue is a school hall, a community centre, or even your town centre, organisers are calling for your support to arrange your own event to take part in the record breaking attempt.

The organisers and creators of Tapathon, The Performers Project, with the support of BBC Children in Need, have choreographed the tap dance routine to one of the UK’s biggest selling singles, ‘I’m still standing’ by Sir Elton John and they hope to break the world record with over 10,000 tappers of all ages dancing the routine.


Director of the Performers Project and former professional dancer, Joanne Greenhalgh said: “No matter what your age or your ability, Tapathon 2021 needs your support. Tapathon is a great opportunity for none dancers and trained dancers to come together across the UK and tap their way into the Guinness book of world records, while raising money for BBC Children in need.”
