21 Oct

Great work tap dancers!

Behind the scenes of adult tap dance in Toronto with Shawn Byfield, downtown at BDX Dance Studio (Byfield Dance Experience) Felt like tap dancing to a popular club song.

Very proud of my adult tap dance class students, they always do their best each class.

TORONTO DISCOVERED: Adult Tap Dance DOES Exist – And It’s Closer Than You Think

Love tap dance, but haven’t had a tap class in what feels like forever? Don’t panic. You can get it all back. Despite what you may have heard, tap dance lessons for adults DO exist. And they’re closer than you think…

Yes, you can feel comfortable tap dancing again. And yes you CAN rekindle your passion and your technique, with adults your own age. If you used to tap back in the day and you’re looking for adult tap dance lessons in Toronto, check out BDX Studio’s inspiring tap dance classes every week.

The newest dance studio to hit Toronto’s downtown is created by local instructor and award-winning choreographer Shawn Byfield, a veteran of television, film and live theatre. His “no stress, no attitude” approach to teaching has inspired hundreds of Toronto residents to rekindle their love for dance.

“As long as you have a little patience, some focus and a heartbeat, I’ll whip  your feet and brain back into shape in no time,” states Byfield, a tap dancer since the age of six. “Refreshing your tap skills is like riding a bike. It all comes back to you once you get back on.”

Byfield and his team share their passion for dance daily in his adults only dance school. But the love doesn’t stop there. Byfield taps into technology and reaches out to a larger audience through his Twitter page.

“It doesn’t matter where I am or what time it is. With Twitter, you can get inspiration 24/7. I tweet my dance and life experiences for the world to embrace. As I grow and learn, I share.”

BDX Studio, which stands for Byfield Dance Experience, is located at 819 Yonge Street, Toronto. Students can get more info online at www.ShawnByfield.com

If planning on joining, your first tap dance class is free. That will help determine what level you’re really at and give you an idea of how much fun you can handle. But a warning for newbies:

“Students at BDX sweat buckets, and have a ton of fun while dancing. Bring your positive energy- and a towel!”

Tap Dancing Gets Better at BDX Toronto

A tap dance lesson in Toronto at BDX – Byfield Dance Experience (http://www.ShawnByfield.com)

Here’s some footage from last week. It’s a bit rough near the end, but the steps got better each time. I should have kept filming!

It’s hard to find tap classes sometimes, but trust me, Toronto has ’em. Byfield Dance Experience (BDX) has two tap dance classes in Toronto every Tuesday night, and one tap class on Saturday afternoon (see the tap schedule here).

If you need to get your tap dance on and just DANCE, why not come on out? The wood feels good.
