Cromer dance school, Marlene’s School of Dancing is taking part in a nation wide attempt at a tap dancing world record in aid of Children in Need on Sunday 16th November on the stage of the famous Pavilion Theatre, Cromer Pier at 1pm.

This is the fifth annual Tapathon organised by The Performers Project, calling on tap dancers of all ages and skills to take part in this ‘taper-fantastic’ event. Staged in dance schools, theatres and other venues across the UK with dancers attempting to set a new world record with everyone dancing at the same time to the same music and dancing the very same steps.  The dance chosen is ‘Happy’ written by Pharrell Williams for the film Despicable Me.

Marlene’s School of Dancing have so far raised £820 by selling ‘Tapathon’ T-Shirts, one each to the 82 children taking part in the Cromer event. They will also be fundraising on the day and hope to add to their total with a target of £1,000 for Children In Need.

A rather interesting and unusual addition to the dancers from Marlene’s School of Dancing will be the crew of the Cromer Lifeboat perhaps better known for their skills on the water this plucky crew have agreed to tap their way into a world record and support Marlene’s dancers but have insisted that they are all on the back row!

Dance School owner Marlene Duniam said “This is a really fun way to raise money for Children in Need and if we can get a world record as well then we will be doubly pleased with our efforts” She continued, “I am are delighted that the Cromer Lifeboat crew have decided to join in the fun, it will be interesting to see just how good they are” and added’  “they should be good as they must already have good balance from being at sea, you never know it might even open up a new career for one or two of them”
