Digital Public Library of America
A remarkable collection of images, text, videos, and audio material from the collections of U.S. public libraries.  Search specific people, or search on "tap dance", then look for the box on the bottom left for types of material.  Select "Moving Image" to see a collection of video interviews of Honi Coles.

Library of Congress Tap Dance in America  
Documentation of twentieth-century tap performance. The collection is searchable by the title, date, and venue of performance; dancer, choreographer, director, producer; and performance medium (film, television, radio, stage, club); as well as by the names of “tap numbers” and tap choreographies. Though the database is not complete in any way, it is the most exhaustive and detailed collection of materials on record.  You could also search The Library of Congress as a whole to see a wider range of material, from audio to print.
