In November our tappers participated in the 10th annual Tapathon. We were attempting to break the world record for the largest tap dance in multiple venues which currently stands at 7596 people.
In total across the country there were 7612 so we have in theory broken the record- we are just awaiting final confirmation from the Guinness World Record officials. Check back here for an update in the new year!
Regardless of the record, we are proud that the event raised £38,300 for Children in Need and we raised a further £135 on the day with a cake sale.
In February some of our ballet students performed alongside Trinity Orchestra in their performance of Hansel and Gretel. They performed beautifully. Congratulations ladies!
On Thursday 29th November our students gave another great performance for Pinner Pantomime evening. Here are a few photos from the night.
On Sunday 25th November, the Commercial Street Dance class represented the school at the Compass Christmas Concert at the Compass Theatre in Ickenham. It was a lovely fund raising event supported by lots of local groups and our students performed brilliantly!
We celebrated the 40th anniversary of the school this year with a full scale show. To tie in with our ruby anniversary every routine had an element of red and we were joined by the previous two principals, Mary Vaughan and Susanna Vincent-Taylor who also performed.
TAPATHON 2017 this year involved 7,518 tappers!!! What an incredible achievement for us all — every year we are improving on the previous year's numbers. We fell short of the record by just 78 people.
Each year, thousands of tap dancers come together all over the UK, each one determined to smash the record. It's all in support of a great cause (BBC Children in Need) and this year the event raised in excess of £38,600. Harrow Theatre Dance and Pinner Theatre Dance raised an additional £80 through our cake sale.
And save the date for TAPATHON 2018: Sunday 18th November. We're going to get this record broken!
Another successful choreography competition was held on Sunday 2nd April. The students choreographed their own routines and performed them in front of an audience. Our adjudictor, Mary Vaughan (the founder of Pinner Theatre Dance) awarded trophies and medals to the winners. Well done everyone!
SCHOOL SHOW 2016
On Saturday 9th July, the whole school performed at Hatch End High School for our show. Everyone was very excited and the audience were impressed by the talent our students displayed. The proceeds of the show (plus a few generous donations) totalled £725 which was donated to Great Ormond Street Hospital. Well done to everyone involved!
