Crafted specially for adult beginners who’ve covered the fundamental ‘building blocks’ of Tap dance (covered in Course 1 of the series), and are ready to take their learning to the next level. We’ve set out to create the most enjoyable, convenient, clear, concise, relevant and effective introduction to the art of Tap dance possible.
Here’s an overview of what you’ll learn in the course:
KEY PRINCIPLES OF TAP DANCE
BUILDING YOUR ‘VOCABULARY’ OF TAP STEPS
BECOMING A BETTER, HAPPIER TAP DANCER
A LITTLE ROOM TO MOVE AROUND
We recommend a minimum of 1m x 1m (3ft x 3ft) to move around. For traveling steps, a corridor or hallway is perfect.
A WOODEN FLOOR IS BEST (But don’t worry if you don’t have one)
A piece of plywood will do the job, or even a plastic office floor protector is a great option that dulls the sound while still being audible to the dancer. We cover home flooring options early-on in the course.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Comfortable clothing that you can move around in.
A willingness and determination to practice and improve over time. It doesn’t work if you don’t really want to learn. And it definitely doesn’t work if you put unrealistic expectations on yourself.
OTHER HELPFUL ITEMS TO HAVE CLOSE BY:
Strictly speaking, no. But if you’ve come this far on the journey, then a pair of Tap shoes is a worthy investment to make. If you’re not ready to commit with a pair of Tap shoes, we recommend to wear the shoes with the hardest sole possible.
We’re glad you asked.
We absolutely recommend joining an in-person Tap class when you can! But there are a few significant benefits to the Just TAP video course series, and things that make it very special with our students:
1. Build confidence from home.
Even if you’re lucky enough to have a local adult Tap class at the appropriate level, jumping in can be intimidating (I’ve been there). Use the Just TAP series as a springboard; a secret weapon that will have your classmates wondering how you’re such a natural.
2. The pros of video learning.
Pause. Rewind. Slow down. Zoom in. Take the time you need without feeling rushed or pressured. Come back to the videos whenever you need a helping hand (or foot).
3. Unparalleled attention to detail.
I don’t gloss over anything, and have structured and explained the content in a way that makes sense. Just because someone can Tap dance well does not necessarily make them a good teacher.
4. Clarity and Guidance.
I’ve made the course easy to understand and follow. You never have a chance to get lost, and never have a chance to get bored. I’m with you every step of the way, guiding you from one step to the next and encouraging you along the way. I have a soothing voice (…or so I’ve been told).
I’ve lived and breathed tap for over 2 decades, and have seen this technique work thousands of times, with people all over the world. Many Tap teachers (and a few Tap rock-stars) have reached out to me over the years sharing their appreciation for the courses.
6. High value. Low cost.
Even if you are lucky enough to have a dance studio with an adult absolute beginner class in your area, most group classes are at least $20 per class (you’ll need at least 7-8 classes to cover the material in this course, if not more), with private classes anywhere from $75 to $100+ per hour.
7. No fluff.
From the start, I wanted to condense as much value and useful content as I could into this course, with zero ‘fluff’. I don’t want to waste your time (or mine), so rather than give you 30 videos to suffer through, I’ve given you 3 invaluable instructional videos (+ some nifty bonuses, including warm-ups and combinations) that cover everything you need to start your Tap journey with confidence.
8. Proven results.
It works. 4500 students and counting.
Currently, we’re not able to offer downloads of the course content.
But good news, the alternative is better.
We’ve significantly leveled-up our video viewing platform, with the in-built ability to speed-up, slow-down, change video quality, and skip easily to different chapter points across each video. You’ll also be able to easily keep track as to what lessons have been completed, and your overall progress throughout the course.
As mentioned, in recent times we’ve significantly leveled-up our video viewing platform, with the in-built ability to speed-up, slow-down, change video quality, and skip easily to different chapter points across each video. You’ll also be able to easily keep track as to what lessons have been completed, and your overall progress throughout the course. It’s intuitive and easy to navigate. We love it (and so do our students).
The course has been created with adults (of any age) in mind, but is 100% appropriate for children.
If you’d like to take your next steps with us, Course 3 in the Just TAP series, ‘Intermediate to Advanced’ picks up right where we leave off, and is the perfect next step on the journey.
If you’re not feeling quite ready to break out of the beginner bubble, ‘Bill’s 6 Week Tap Bootcamp‘ is the perfect option to bridge this gap.
