Adult Tap Dance In Toronto: BEHIND THE SCENES

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.

Free Tap Dance Lesson Warmup

7 Feb

Free Tap Dance Lesson Warmup!

I call this tap dance exercise “Can You Dig It!” It focuses on dig heels, weight transfer, pattern recognition, syncopation, and variations in the pattern when switching to other sides.

Slow the tap warm up down if you’re a beginner tap dancer or speed up the exercise to challenge your advanced skills. Best part about this exercise? It’s perfect for all tap dance levels.

We’ll be using this tap lesson at my Toronto dance studio Byfield Dance Experience (BDX) regularly in class.

Learn it, comment and enjoy!

Tap Dance Lesson on TV

28 Apr

Want to learn how to tap dance? Here’s  a tap dance lesson from a television show I was on. The hosts had no tap dance training or experience, just a desire to learn!

I taught the hosts a very basic tap dance routine, and man, they were a blast. I literally taught this tap dance routine live on air, no pre-rehearsal. Fun times! Feel free to use the tap steps, and leave your comments on the video.

Nicholas Brothers Tap Dance Routine

The Nicholas Brothers tap dancers

Here’s a tap dance video of my favourite tap dancin’ duo, Harold and Fayard Nicholas, the Nicholas Brothers, in Stormy Weather.

Athleticism, syncopation, grace, and all round dynamic hoofin was their trademark style. And, they did it in suits. Classy! Band directed by Cab Calloway.

Nicholas Brothers Dance Routine in Stormy Weather

Nothing compares to the Nicholas Brothers… They’re a great example for all hoofers to learn tap steps from. I like to inpsire all my Toronto tap dance students with videos  from this duo. Stuff like this inspires us all to learn how to tap dance.

Or, learn how to tap dance better. Heck, I can literally watch videos of the brothers for hours!

What you think?
