Well-known Australian tap dance teacher and performer Bill Simpson announced his latest project and labour of love earlier this year – Just Tap, a three-part video series teaching tap dance to beginners. Simpson, a Brisbane resident, said he wanted to create a high-quality instructional video course specifically for adults that were wishing to learn tap dance for the first time.
“Many people find their first dance classes overwhelming and intimidating, sometimes eliminating their excitement and motivation to learn, sadly often resulting in them giving up. Over the 13 years I’ve been teaching tap, I’ve noticed that fewer and fewer options are available for adults to learn and understand the crucial fundamentals of this amazing art form,” Simpson explained. “I’m thrilled to say that after hundreds of hours spent writing, filming, editing, carefully crafting and testing the course, it is finally ready to make it’s way out into the world.”
Simpson, the founder of Red Hot Rhythm, has taught thousands of people of all ages learn to tap. Just Tap is an extension of this. [Watch a 60-second teaser video below.]
However, the three-part video series is not a syllabus, as Simpson clarifies. “It’s fundamental tap dance technique broken down in a way that is easy to understand, designed specifically to get people off to a flying start on their tap dance journey, and to leave them inspired and motivated to continue.”
Simpson concluded, “I’m very proud of the course, and am happy to say it has already received overwhelmingly positive feedback from a test audience of adults between 18 and 58.”
The course was officially released over Easter Weekend. For further information, visit www.howtotapdance.com. As Simpson says, “It’s never too late to start” tap dance!
