Guiness Tap Dancing Records

Information Guiness tap dancing records established or attempted

Angell Husted
A Charlottesville-area woman tap-danced for almost nine hours Saturday, covering 20 miles and apparently earning herself a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. Angell Husted, a 51-year-old fitness instructor, danced across the finish line at 5: 15 p.m. yesterday, breaking the record. ... She finished her 348 laps after miles of heel-toe and toe-heel movements sprinkled in with skips and shuffles. In the winter of 1997, when Angell Husted first dreamed of tapping farther than any woman in the world had tapped before, she had no time for such questions. There was money to be raised, music to be selected, a costume to be made, a venue to find. There was also this minor issue. She didn't know how to tap dance.

David Meenan David Meenan of Red Bank, N.J., who, on June 30, 1996, tapped 23.2 miles in the rain (not singing) to raise money for a friend with leukemia. And

Beth Obermeyer

Laurie Churchwell
Laurie Churchwell, who in 1996 tapped 17.9 miles over icy sidewalks on the campus of Howard College in Big Spring, Texas. "I did it for my children and my dance students, to show them that whatever you set your mind to, you can do it."
