Welcome! I’m Bill.
I’m the guy in the video:
I was 16 when I first discovered tap dance.
I’ve been making noise with my feet ever since; teaching, choreographing and performing all over the world.
Over my years as a tap dancer, I’ve spent a lot of time refining my teaching method;
I’ve pulled apart the crucial ‘tools’ that every tap dancer needs, and have learned how to teach them in a way that makes sense.
A few years back, I began the pain-staking (but hugely rewarding) task of converting this knowledge into video format.
The result is Just TAP.
Just TAP has helped thousands of people of all ages, from all over the world, discover the magic of tap dance.
Each day, I receive emails from students across the globe, sharing their story of how the video course series has helped them find (or remember) a new happiness in their lives. It truly warms my heart.

I can honestly say:
Just TAP is the series I wish I had when I was starting out.
Tap dance is a rare form of magic. Whenever people see it, they stop to watch. It is an art form we all love, and secretly wish we could do.
If you have ever experienced the ache of wishing to tap dance, then this series was created for you. I have set out to give you the most comprehensive, relevant and effective introduction to tap dance possible. 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 proud of Just TAP, and I think you’re going to love it. I truly hope it helps you discover a new, exciting source of wonder and magic in your life.
I look forward to seeing you inside!
Creator of Just TAP.

WHAT MAKES ‘JUST TAP’ SPECIAL?
Unparalleled attention to detail.
I don’t gloss over anything, and have structured and explained the content in a way that makes sense.
I’ve made the course easy. 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 a decade, and have seen this technique work hundreds of times.
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 $15 per class, with private classes anywhere from $75 to $100+ per hour. Sure, you could spend hours on youtube trying to learn for free, but you will likely lose hours searching for sub-par technique.
From the start, I wanted to condense as much value 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 2 invaluable courses that cover everything you need to get started with confidence.
“I cannot think of a better way to start (or restart) tap dance.”

A LITTLE ROOM TO MOVE AROUND
We do a lot of steps standing still, so even 1m x 1m will do the job. 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. More about home flooring options here.
WHAT TO WEAR:
Comfortable clothing that you can move around in.
DO I NEED TAP SHOES?
Nope! Not to start with. Of course, if you’ve got them, great! But there’s no harm in holding off, and then making the investment once you’ve given it a try. In the meantime, just wear the hardest soled shoes you have. More about tap shoes here.
OTHER HELPFUL ITEMS:
- Chair (to use as a bar support)
- Mirror (the bigger, the better)
- Metronome (or Metronome app for smart phone)
“You only have two feet and four taps to make magic.”
