Children’s TV presenter Naomi Wilkinson leads Roy Castle Lung Cancer Foundation virtual tap fundraiser


It’s time to type! Roy Castle Lung Cancer FoundationThe annual tap dance fundraiser is back, and this year’s event is expected to be the best yet.

The dancers who participate will learn a routine from the comfort of their own home. Then on the 22n/a In May, they will join a special Zoom event with TV presenter, CBBC and Countryfile star and principal choreographer, Naomi Wilkinson.

Naomi, who participated in 2021 and studied at London College of Dance, said “I love to choreograph, I love to tap, and I love to teach, so when I was invited, I jumped at the chance to host Time to Tap this year.

Roy was truly one of my heroes growing up. I’m a tap dancing children’s TV presenter who played a brass instrument, so I feel a real affinity with the tap dancing and trumpeting legend that was Roy Castle.

I greatly admired Roy as a kid, and always looked up in awe when he played an instrument or tapped. He always seemed so warm and kind, as well as being remarkably talented, a truly inspiring gentleman.

Time to Tap is a fantastic way to bring together people who share the love of tap dancing, while raising funds for those affected by lung cancer in memory of the late Roy Castle.

Fundraising manager Rosie Morgan, who is organizing the event for the charity, said “Like Roy, Naomi has a passion for both TV presenting and dancing, so we know our tappers are in good hands!

She choreographed two fantastic dances for the event. The first is perfect for beginners, and the second is slightly more advanced – for those looking for a little more challenge! Both video tutorials will be sent to everyone who signs up, so don’t worry if you have two left feet or are a trained dancer – these routines are suitable for all ability levels.

Each dancer who participates will receive a unique Time to Tap souvenir medal. A special souvenir t-shirt will be given to dancers who raise £25 for the association; this will also be available for purchase.
