Is this you?

  • You’re a committed tap teacher who wants to give your students nothing but the best, but you're feeling overwhelmed by the mix of ages and levels in your classes... 
  • You need help keeping your students engaged and excited week after week, whether they're on zoom or in the room with you... 
  • You’re a dedicated tap teacher who wants to develop a more thorough tap dance program that gives students many years of growth and passion
  • You're eager to give your students more and bring your classes to the next level because you're committed to strengthening your tap program...
  • You’re feeling frustrated and a bit stuck on how to simultaneously manage multiple levels in your classes...
  • You're a student at heart who loves to learn but feel like you don't have easy access to opportunities to develop your teaching philosophy...

If this sounds like you, then you know how hard it is for tap teachers to find a dedicated Tap Teacher Program

That's what inspired me to create the iTap Teacher Certificate Program in 2018.

The iTap Teacher Certificate Program is a comprehensive 10-week online training designed to help you become the best Tap Teacher you can be by educating you on the 5 Fundamentals of Tap Dance and giving you the tools you need to lead a successful tap dance program

I created the iTap Teacher Certificate Program to support passionate tap teachers just like you, because you deserve a dedicated program to develop your skills as a Tap Teacher. 

The iTap Teacher Certificate Program will:

  • Give you access to the mentorship you deserve and a safe space to ask all your questions.
  • Bring your tap classes to the next level by giving you a new and inspiring way to approach tap classes week after week for many seasons to come.
  • Help you step into the role of Thriving Tap Teacher by building your confidence and clarity as a mentor to your students and leader in your local dance community.
  • Give you the tools you need to increase your student retention season after season so you can build and shape a thriving tap program filled with eager tap dancers.
  • Connect you with other passionate tap teachers around the world and give you a go-to community for support and growth

What makes the iTap Teacher Certificate Program different?

The 5 Fundamentals of Tap Dance

The iTap Teacher Certificate Program is based on the 5 Fundamentals of Tap Dance, for tap dancers from beginner through advanced, and ages five through adult. 

Filling in the Gaps

Filling in the Gaps is my chance to learn more about you, what you already know, and what you need help with, so you can receive personal feedback on where to put your focus as you dive deep into the 5 Fundamentals of Tap Dance.

A Different Way of Doing

You’re going to learn a new way of approaching your tap classes, a way that will leave you energized and excited week after week, and your students inspired and ready for more. 

Safe Space to Learn

The iTap Teacher Certificate Program is a safe space for passionate tap teachers to learn, grow and ask any and all questions they have (even the ones you’ve been too scared to ask before). You’ll have access to the mentorship and expert guidance you truly deserve.

Accountability

Through a series of short submissions and live calls, you’ll receive personalized feedback and stay on track through the program. This will ensure that you have a true understanding of all the information that’s presented to you, and that you can share it with your students with confidence and clarity.

Community & Connection

You'll be sharing shuffles with a supportive group of passionate, like-minded tap teachers from all around the world who love nothing more than asking questions, getting answers and sharing ideas.

Lifetime Access

You’ll receive lifetime access to the content of the iTap Teacher Certificate Program so you can look back, reference as needed. This includes all modules, lessons, worksheets and the private iTap Teacher Faebook group.

Meet Hillary-Marie

Hey there! I'm Hillary-Marie, founder of iTapOnline™.

After starting Jersey Tap Fest back in 2010, I opened Grooves Unlimited Dance Studio in 2012. Grooves Unlimited is the only dance studio in the U.S. that focuses solely on Hip-Hop and Tap Dance with fully developed programs that are dedicated to the technique, history, and culture of both art forms. 

We have 250+ passionate dancers of all ages and levels who walk in and out of our doors each and every single week, and a pre-professional non-competitive performance program. 

All the while (pre-COVID) I was traveling the world to teach passionate tap teachers just like you, from Taiwan, to Colombia, to Europe, to Central America, and all throughout the U.S.

I pretty much have the coolest job in the world :)

I started iTapOnline™ back in 2016 to give tap teachers around the world quick and easy access to a high-quality tap dance education online, and I launched the iTap Teacher Certificate Program in 2018 to offer tap teachers a deeper level of education. 

If you love tap dance and are ready to become the best tap teacher you can be for your students, then I can't wait to share shuffles with you super soon.

Wishing you all the best,

Hillary-Marie

HOW DOES IT WORK?

10 Whole Weeks

We know that Summer is a great time for Teachers to continue their education. The program will kick-off at the end of June, and will carry forward 10 weeks. Each week will bring a new series of pre-recorded lessons, live continuing education sessions, worksheets and assignments (and other surprises along the way). 

Continuing Education Sessions

Join Hillary-Marie and your fellow iTap Teachers for live weekly sessions on Zoom to discuss the module and lessons of the week. This is your chance to ask questions, get additional support, and dive deeper into the material presented to you.

iTap Teacher’s Corner

An entire section of the iTapOnline™ Member Center dedicated specifically to iTap Teachers, this is where you’ll go to access your Modules, Lessons, Continuing Education Sessions, Worksheets, and more. You will also have lifetime access to this section of the website, and all of the Modules, Lessons and Worksheets provided to you during the program.

iTap Teacher's Pod

This is a dedicated Facebook Group for iTap Teachers, where you’ll have direct access to Hillary-Marie and other members of the program for support, questions, guidance and conversation.

Worksheets

You will be provided with a series of worksheets that will culminate in the ultimate Guidebook to support you in your tap classes after you graduate from the program.

T.A.P. Submission

Every lesson learned will help you work towards your final T.A.P. Submission, which will ensure that you have a true understanding of the 5 Fundamentals of Tap Dance and how to best incorporate them into your classes on a weekly basis.

Personal Feedback

You’ll receive personal feedback, guidance and support directly from Hillary-Marie. This includes feedback on videos, worksheets and questions asked, to make sure that you have a true understanding of the information that you have been provided and that you’re able to pass it down to your students authentically and accurately.
