Rooftop Dancers Tap Their Way to Fundraising Success

Last month thousands of tap enthusiasts across the country joined together for the Performers’ Project ‘Tapathon’ to raise funds for Children in Need, and Stone’s Rooftop Studio dancers proudly played their part!


pudseySunday 20th November saw 23 keen tap dancers – aged from teens to adults – in Rooftops Stone town centre join the nationwide attempt to smash a world record by performing a choreographed routine. As part of the registration, all dancers bought a T-shirt for the event, with funds going to BBC Children in Need, along with cakes & refreshments sold on the day, which raised an additional £109 for the charity.

rooftopTap teacher at Rooftop Studios, Verity Ann Caddy, says: @We had a fantastic time taking part in the Tapathon 2016 – my Rooftop students were joined by tappers from Marye Humphreys School of Dance so there was a real party atmosphere. Everyone took part with great enthusiasm – it was brilliant to be a part of something so big whilst raising funds for a very worthy cause. While it turns out the national Tapathon effort narrowly missed breaking the record again this year, we still had fun and did our bit for a very special charity.”
