Meet Nick Bowman
Nick Bowman is the founder and creator of Tap Teacher Online — a dance program resource and consultancy for competitive dance studios and higher education dance programs. His methodology is deep coaching — bespoke, not time-based. Nick’s clients vary a wide range of dance studios, institutions and organizations of every size — from newly-founded, recreational studios to ultra-successful, competitive studios (studios you would assume don’t need a coach). Throughout the dance education community, Nick has built a reputation surrounding his passion for inspiring educators and students alike to strive for, and reach, their fullest potential.
He is an expert at guiding high-achievers to the greatest levels of success. A lifelong student of human behavior, Nick has extensively researched the question of how seemingly minor changes in method and psychology can account for radical differences in performance.
A thought leader in the world of dance education, Nick has been on faculty with the Nation’s premier dance convention, West Coast Dance Explosion (WCDE), for well over a decade. While touring with WCDE in his early twenties, he first had the opportunity to partner with other industry thought leaders and top-performing studios. These relationships quickly inspired Nick down a decade-long path of inquiry, ultimately leading him to one of his life’s greatest passions – hacking the code to high-performing, streamlined, dance coaching.
Additionally, beyond his passion for coaching and dance education, Nick is the executive director and co-creator of Rhythmic Circus — a highly-acclaimed touring music and dance company. Nick is proud to have toured extensively with Rhythmic Circus all over the world, to have performed their show Feet Don’t Fail Me Now in an extended run Off-Broadway, to have been invited to perform with them at the Kennedy Center in Washington D.C., and to have been showcased with them on America’s Got Talent.
Another of Nick’s brainchildren is Vision Street Arts — a new non-profit company devoted to the creation of original music, dance and theater programming — which he founded and currently serves on the board of directors.
His new forthcoming blog is titled Dance Coach: How to Optimize Your Program, Curriculum and Classroom. Through this blog, Nick will offer dance educators helpful insights and strategies from his experience as well as from other top-level coaches and choreographers in the dance education industry.
Through all of his success, Nick remains grateful to receive constant invitations to choreograph, coach and perform in countries all over the world. He is also incredibly grateful for — and proud of — his wife, Katie, a well-respected Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner, specializing in acupuncture and herbal medicine. The two of them are madly in love, happily reside in Minneapolis, MN and look forward to starting a family. — Oh, and he still gets nervous walking into a party.
