More than 40 dancers from the school spent weeks learning a dance routine for the event on November 19.

And thousands of people across the UK tap-danced simultaneously as they tried to beat the Guinness World Record in aid of Children in Need. The current record is 7,596 tap-dancers.

The ‘tapathon’ was held at the ACT Centre, Aylsham.

Dance teacher Katy Carroll said: “We had 42 people take part. They all practiced the routines for four to five weeks.

“Its been intensive, but the kids have all had a great time.”

The tapathon is the second time the dance school has taken part in a world record attempt, after an effort last year failed to claim the title.

Miss Carroll added that the four minute routine had to be danced through twice, starting on the dot of 1pm.
