About this project

Tap That is a lifestyle brand with tap dancers at the forefront and the reason behind the brand.

Tap dance has been around for so long, but other than metal plates on shoes there is not much else for tap dancers to wear that is uniquely tap. We want to make active wear for tap dancers, and above all help contribute to an amazing art form and its community that's brought joy to this world for years!

We want to help tap dancers engage the world with their style and be noticed... Show the world you TAP! We want you to be part of the movement.

Tap That to date: We launched the brand in late 2014, investing our own funds to produce our first line of products and to create awareness and obtain feedback from our target audience, we have used this information to build our business and implement the strategy that will follow.

Tap Dance brings joy to many people - it is an all inclusive art form - anyone, anywhere can tap.

People tap for many reasons, to create rhythms, make noise, compose music, share passion, move, keep fit, learn a new skill, perform and be part of a community. We've seen people from all ages and all walks of life tap dance, we have found the tap community is made up of such a diverse range of individuals who may never have met if it wasn't for their love of tap and wanting to create music and dance in one.

Our new collection is ready for production. The total investment will assist with the purchase of stock and manufacturing. The clothing will be supplied by Australian company, AS Colour - http://www.ascolour.com.au/ and printing by local based company All of the Above.

Join the Tap That community and be part of creating a new brand inspired by tap dance.

Designing, manufacturing and selling products takes a large initial investment to have the stock required to offer a lifestyle brand at a competitive and affordable price. With your support, it will allow us to invest in the design elements with the guarantee of producing the products as a result of these designs. The investment will increase our stock to be able to target a larger audience through larger distribution channels to continue to grow the business. Thank you!

In order to develop the brand and manufacture a range of new products we want your input, this can be done in 3 ways:

1) Invest in the brand to help with building stock and new designs

2) Pre-order the proposed stock at the campaign discount price via the Reward options to the right

3) Share your comments and ideas of what you would like to see Tap That produce

Risks and challenges

As we have tested the waters and created the designs, we have minimised the potential risks or challenges for this campaign, below are the only two issues that may occur at this stage and how we will manage them if they arise.

Delays in manufacturing - our timeline has catered for small delays, therefore it is likely the stock will be ready earlier. We ran into problems on our initial run with printers and took the time to find a reliable and experienced business to work with to produce quality results in a timely manner. We have worked with both our suppliers on other projects and have confidence in their work.

Shipping delays - these may take longer than anticipated, but again we have allowed contingency in the timeline for this, we will be in touch with you throughout the process to keep you up to date to ensure expectations are met.

Please note colours on printed products may vary from the images shown here due to different screen resolutions and differences in printing colours. *Images are not to scale.
