Actor and Starlight supporter Tom Chambers is on a mission to get us tap-tap-tapping our way through lockdown with his new online video programme, ‘Tap with Tom’.

The series aims to bring tap dancing to the masses by teaching simple moves that can be customised together into longer routines. With Tom’s help, you’ll be a tap dancing star in no time!

Tom will be donating a portion of the proceeds from the campaign to Starlight, helping us to support seriously ill children from around the UK.

The reason why dancing is so good for you is that you’re getting two things at the same time: it’s good for the body and good for the brain.

“This is about trying to make tap more fun and easily accessible,” says Tom.

He’s combining his passion for dance with a desire to make a difference by donating funds from the project to Starlight: “I think you should do something for something you feel passionate and care about, and that is Starlight for me.”
