What’s the exciting tap dance news, you ask?

Well if you live and tap dance in Toronto (or anywhere in the GTA), let me just say the secret is out… I’ll be having a Holiday benefit concert at Six Degrees Nightclub. Sunday December 14th, 7 pm.

I’m looking to raise funds to start building a dance studio in Toronto! And that means, one with a great dance floor for tap dancers. Sprung hardwood. Bright space. Good acoustics. This will allow me to have more dance space and classes for my current tap dance and hip hop students, and open the doors to new members.

What’s really exciting, is I want to build a dance space in Toronto for performing companies, choreographers and other dance artists as a place to create new ideas, collaborate, and inspire each other. Which also allows for better dance choreography and shows.

I’ll even open the dance studio doors to informal and formal performances.

All of this, of course, requires cash… and lots of it. That’s why I’m having an event to raise awareness and funds. Check out the details here:

I’d LOVE to have a dance space ready for you by the summer, but who knows how long these things take. The important part is, I’m taking action. One tap step at a time. Sooner or later, this dance space will be built!

    for a GREAT fundraiser, visit a site called sparkle-plenty. they specializes in custom logo work on t-shirts (or whatever), using swarovski crystal and/or rhinestone. i know they did a design called “fly high” featuring a butterfly, used to raise money for scholarships for young women. it was a huge success. thought you might like to know about it.
