Team GB Taps To Triumph

Mother and daughter team Rebecca Long and Veronica Fox travelled at the start of December to Reisa in Germany to compete in the Tap Dancing World Championships as part of the Team GB dancers.

Mother and daughter team Rebecca Long and Veronica Fox travelled at the start of December to Reisa in Germany to compete in the Tap Dancing World Championships as part of the Team GB dancers. Rebecca competed in the Adults section for 16 to 25 year olds and was the youngest participant in that category. The small group of 34 tap dancers tip tapped their way through two routines and picked up 5th place out of 30 countries. The Sixth Form student has been dancing since she was two years old and every weekend the dancing duo visit Swindon, a round trip of more than 250 miles, to practise their skills. Rebecca said “It was a fantastic weekend and our team were really pleased to take 5th place as we were up against such talented dancers. Mum's team did better though and, as reigning world champions, they again took first place and were awarded the gold medal! I know Mum is proud of me but I’m really proud of her and the rest of her team too!”.
