The Tapathon is a nationwide tap dancing event to raise money for BBC Children in Need, with as many people dancing the same routine simultaneously round the UK as possible.
Despite the name, thankfully it's not a dance marathon!
All you need to do is learn one short tap dance routine which is suitable for complete beginners, and perform it in a group on the day.
There is a small entry fee, which also gets you a Tapathon t-shirt, with the remainder of the fee going to charity. No commitment is required until October, so you can have some fun learning the routine before deciding whether to take part on the day.
Nearer the time, you may want to purchase tap shoes, although you can practice without them. Please come in your ordinary shoes, ideally not trainers as they have too much grip, something with a smooth hard sole is perfect.
Classes are at Craignure Village Hall on Thursday evenings at 6pm. Cost is £4 payg.
