It’s Time to Tap!

Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation’s annual tap-dancing event is back and this years live performance is set to be the best yet!

Join us from across the nation to celebrate your love of tap dancing with hundreds of others as we tap our way into National Tap Dance Day.

Our host

We’re lucky to have wonderful tap-dancer Claire Miller, best known for her live performances at the Love Supreme Jazz Festival and Royal Albert Hall Elgar Room. Claire has choreographed two routines along with amazing step by step tutorials for you to follow.

The routines

The first will be a routine perfect for beginners, and the second will be a slightly more advanced routine – for those looking for a bit more of a challenge! Both routines will be sent to all those who registered to take part, so don’t worry if you have two left feet or you’re a trained dancer, our routines will be suitable for all abilities and you’ll have access to the tutorials as soon as you register.

Once you’ve mastered your chosen routine, we’ll come together virtually on Sunday 21st May at 1pm to tap together!

Claire and the Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation team will go LIVE on our Time to Tap Facebook group, using Zoom as a platform, so that we can all see one another whilst we dance together in unison.

Whilst learning and tapping together you’ll be helping to raise funds to create a brighter future for all those affected by lung cancer.

You can take part as a dance school, group or individually and choose which routine best suits you. Everyone that registers will receive the two routines and step by step tutorials and a unique Time to Tap medal on completion.

All those that raise £50 or more will receive our exclusive Time to Tap t-shirt to wear on the day with pride! (Please note, the final posting date for t-shirts is one week before the event, so targets must be reached in advance of this date)

Shortly after registering, you’ll receive the tutorial links and will be supported by our team as you practice, prepare and fundraise for our performance on 21st May 2023. Then a few days before Time to Tap day, we will send you the all important Zoom details for you to join Claire LIVE!

Our charity was named after one of the UK’s most iconic tap dancers – Roy Castle OBE. We love nothing more than continuing Roy’s legacy and inspiring the nation to Tap their way to raising money to help all those affected by lung cancer.
