A SHOW school is urging people in Wyre Forest to help them finally break a world tap dancing record and raise money for Children in Need.

This will be the sixth time Zennor's dance school will be participating in the challenge which was narrowly missed last year by just 102 people.

It is the 10th anniversary of The Performers Project Tapathon, which sees dance schools from across the country perform a recorded routine at the same time, and show school principal Zennor McGuire is calling on members of the public to get their dancing shoes on for Pudsey and help them to get into the Guinness Book of Records.

The current record stands at 7,596 people.

Zennor said: "Groups across the country learn the same routine and we want as many people as possible to join us on November 17 to help us beat the record. Participants can be of any age and skill level.

"We haven't succeeded yet but hopefully this is our year."

Rehearsals start next week on Monday at 7.30pm in Far Forest Village Hall and on Saturday at 4pm at the Baptist Church Hall in Stourport's Minster Road.

People can contact Zennor McGuire for more information by calling 01299 266814 or via email at zennoruk@aol.com.
