How many of these frustrations feel familiar?
So you reluctantly drag your happy feet to your too-hard or too-easy Tap class when your life schedule allows and pray that the weather Gods are on your side as you drive to the studio…
Then you hop onto TikTok and Instagram for some Tap Dance reels and posts, but you realize that it takes more than a 30-second social share to receive a quality Tap Dance education...
Then you scroll scroll scroll on YouTube hoping to find a breakdown video you can trust (heck, maybe you’re here because you were on MY YouTube Channel), only to find that it’s just a one-way screen with no one to answer your questions and make sure you’re not drilling bad Tap Dance habits that will take way too long to fix...
Then you start looking at flights to NYC so you can take masterclasses but the cost of that is wayyyyy too many dollars and then you think to yourself, "that's a LOT for just a weekend experience."

Hi! I'm Hillary-Marie...
I’m one of the few professional Tap Dancers who will openly share that Tap Dance didn’t come easy to me. I wasn’t some wonder-kid prodigy Tap Dancer. I had to work HARD for these feet!
When I became a professional touring Tap Dance artist, I also started teaching Tap Dancers of all ages and levels.
That’s when those years of struggling in the back-row of the back-corner of Tap class paid off as I turned my Tap Dance trials into Technique exercises, analogies and stories to give my students a smoother, easier and kinder Tap Dance experience than my own.
I went on to open my own studio back in 2012: Grooves Unlimited Dance Studio, serving 250 students per season. I toured my award-winning professional Tap Dance company, while being the Founder and Director of Jersey Tap Fest for 10 years, and the Director of pre-professional FutureSTEP Tap Company, and performing as a soloist with musicians all over the world, and traveling to teach and perform at Tap Dance and Jazz Music Festivals all around the world.
And in 2016, I took all of my Tap Dance love, knowledge, appreciation and experience, and poured it into the iTapOnline Member Center.
