TapTastik closed the show on the second night of the semi-finals, literally with a bang! With a routine that paid tribute to the golden era of Hollywood musicals (perfected over a short period with rehearsals of 6 – 9 hours per week), they shone in every way, including their beaming smiles. Although it marked the end of their journey, no one could be sad because they had every reason to be proud of their performance and the whole experience had been magical.
Having taught many of my students for a number of years, we thought we would try our luck at Britains Got Talent this year and much to our amazement, we made it all the way through to the Live Semi Finals. We had such an amazing time.
