About me.



Hi, my name is Bill.
I’m the guy in the video:


Since I first tried tap, it has been my favorite thing to do. I’ve been teaching and performing tap dance for over a decade, and have helped thousands of people of all ages learn to how to tap dance.




Over my 13 years as a tap dance teacher, I have been working to refine my teaching method and class content. I set out to be the best tap teacher I could, by making the learning process as easy-to-understand as possible for my students.  3 years ago, I initially fleshed out the idea of converting this knowledge into video format. It would be another 2 years before I began creating Just TAP.


I think I was initially thinking: “Easy. I’ll write it in week 1, film in week 2, edit week 3, tell people about it in week 4, and it’ll make it’s grand debut into the world in week 5. Boom. 5 weeks.”


In total, it took just over 12 months to complete, from the first day of planning, to launch date.


That may seem a long time to spend on less than 90 minutes of content. It was.


A confession…

I must fill you in on a secret:


I created this course for myself. My 16-year-old self. The same 16-year-old who discovered videos of people like Gene Kelly, Fred Astaire, Gregory Hines, and shows like Dein Perry’s: Tap Dogs and knew beyond any doubt that he had to do that, while having no idea how to begin.


I was 16 when I started tap dance, and for over a decade, it has been the main focus of my life. I can honestly say: this is the course I wish I had when I was starting out.


I think tap dance is a rare form of magic. Whenever people see tap dance, they stop to watch. It is an art form we all love, and secretly wish we could do.


In summary:

I set out to provide the best, most relevant introduction to the art of tap dance I could, for people all over the world to enjoy.


If you yourself have ever experienced the ache of wishing to tap dance, then this course was created for you. I have set out to give you the most comprehensive, relevant and effective introduction to tap dance I can. Use it as a secret weapon to help you get started, and come back to it as a point of reference whenever you need to.


I’m thrilled to say that I’m really proud of the Just TAP  course, and I think you’ll love it. I truly hope the course helps you discover a new, exciting source of wonder and magic in your life.
