National Tap Dance Day 2014 in Toronto

Every year, May 25th is National Tap Dance Day, which honours the birthday of Bill “Bojangles” Robinson. The left-footed tap dancer paved the way and opened the doors for Black entertainers to perform in film and stage.

This is now celebrated on an international scale, with tap dance classes, shows and events happening globally.

To celebrate in Toronto, expert tap dance choreographer Shawn Byfield is hosting Toronto’s official National Tap Dance Day Workshop for tap dancers aged 18 and up, on Saturday May 24th at Byfield Dance Experience, 819 Yonge Street, Toronto.

These dancers really worked their ears!

In this Toronto tap dance class, we worked on counter rhythms and teamwork, just like a Tap Dogs show. There are four parts. And the most important aspect of this tap class? Listening. Really using your ears. That’s the most important skill a fantastic tap dancer needs to master.

Can you hear the different rhythms?
