Our Awesome Story


The idea for e-Tap incepted from the desire to attend multiple tap dance classes that were all scheduled at the same times or held in different states or countries. We all want the opportunity to do as many tap classes as possible and to learn from as many people as we can but it isn’t always possible.

A lot of people find it daunting to learn in a class/studio scenario, especially when they’ve never learnt tap before.  e-Tap is a platform that eliminates that feeling with the comfort of learning in your own home. Whether you are someone who has always wanted to try tap or you are an advanced tap dancer wanting to fit in some extra classes, we are the answer for you!
