Welcome to Tap University! Thank
you for checking us out and shopping at our web site.
I have been teaching tap dance all over the country and the world
for the past 15 years, and noticed that there were really no "cool" items
of clothing out there for "hoofers."
As a Tap Dancer, I
always wondered why there are plenty of cool Dance Clothes but not
more Tap Dance themed clothing and accessories: A cool Shoe
a separate zippered pocket to put my Tap Shoes in, cool and comfortable
sweatpants that didn't cover my Tap Shoes. Comfortable Dance Clothes
I could wear with pride to show that I am proud to be a Tap dancer...So
I decided that I would do something about it...
After I started hearing
my students using the phrases and sayings I employ in class to help
them, I realized that I was on to something and that I should combine
the 2 ideas: a cool shirt/clothing line using those sayings. I have
always liked the look of college crests and that's when we came up
with the idea of Tap University, to create a completely unique line
Now, in order to make it official we needed some
sort of Latin phrase. Lo and behold, that's when "Invenio
born. Roughly translated it meant "Find The One" — or "find
the COUNT of 1" — a
very important theory for tap dancers!
We also knew that we wanted
to reach a wide-ranging audience - not just tap dancers
- so we have some items with absolutely no reference to tap dance
at all. "Lighten
up and listen", " "Find the one", "Take
your time, as long as you get there" are all phrases with
as many meanings as there are imaginations...
We have many more ideas,
styles and phrases to come, including a whole line for the baby
boomer in all of us! So keep watching for our new, exciting, fun
and — of
course —COOL items . . .
Enjoy! And thanks again for visiting
