DANCERS will be tapping their way to a world record in aid of Children in Need.

Batley and Birstall pupils at Victoria Dance Studios are taking part in a nationwide tapathon on November 18 to raise money for the charity.

Tutor Victoria Lister said: “The tapathon involves a number of schools nationwide who all dance the same routine at the same time in the hope that the combined numbers of students will win a place in the Guinness Book of World Records for the biggest number of dancers doing the same routine in unison.

“We have been rehearsing for a couple of months. The routine is to Olly Murs’ Dance With Me Tonight.

“We had a visit from Pudsey Bear at our studio in Gomersal and everyone was very excited to meet him!”
