Tap dancers sets a new Guinness World Recordô on tv : Tap Attack on TV

Tap dancer and choreographer Jo Scanlan has broken the world record to be crowned the world's fastest tap dancer.

Jo of Swindon (England), smashed the existing record of 602 beats in a minute by 182 beats, during the "Boys V Girls" section of Sky 1's "Guinness World Records Smashed" on June 7 2009, setting a new unprecedented Guinness World Record™ of 784 beats.

To make the record attempt more difficult Jo was up against her student Joe Dodd from London, who is also a member of the England Tap Team, which Jo is head coach and co-artistic director of. "Joe Dodd is a phenomenally gifted young dancer, he is part of the England tap team which I coach, and was ranked 12th at the 2008 World Championships, so to be up against him made it all the more difficult to obtain the record". Joe also broke the existing record with an impressive 686 beats in 1 minute.

Jo has been tap dancing since she was 7, initially in the UK and then furthering her training after being awarded several scholarships to study in America. She has had opportunity to study privately and in residence with Dr Henry Le Tang, Dr Bunny Briggs, Barbara Duffy and Heather Cornell as well as taking master classes with Jason Samuels Smith, Arthur Duncan and Fayard Nicholas.

Jo currently works as a performer and choreographer whilst teaching at some of the UK's leading vocational establishments and runs tap dance company "Tap Attack" as well as training the "Tap Attack Youth Company".
