These Toronto Tap Classes Are PERFECT For You- Even If You’re Rusty As Heck And Haven’t Tap Danced In Years

Now’s the time.

If it’s been ages since you put your tap shoes on and you haven’t had the chance to throw down with us before, DON’T WORRY! After a few tap dance classes you’ll feel back up to speed. You’ll start remembering all the tap steps you used to master back in the day.

Byfield Dance Experience is Toronto’s favourite dance studio where people just like you come to get back in to it.

Oh, and heads up: We have tons of fun. Period.  And there’s always a gem of wisdom to take away from each tap dance lesson in Toronto, and all of our dance classes.

By the way, if you’re looking for some exercise, Tap dancing is definitely the best damn “boot camp workout” for your brain and your body, just as much as your feet. It’s safe, fun, and the perfect workout for adults. So if you’re looking for exercise, it’s a hell of a lot more exciting than a run on the treadmill. =)

Tap On – GO Transit Presto Tap Dance Commercial

1 Jun

Now this… this is SO frickin’ cool:

“Tap On” – Tap Dance Presto Pass Commercial

It’s the cool tap dance commercial I choreographed for GO Transit’s new Presto Pass. We filmed last month and our tap dancing antics took over Toronto’s Union Station during rush hour.

I’m tap dancing with Janaye Upshaw, who killed it! You may recognize her from the “Dance, Dance, Much Video Dance!” campaign. Also recently worked together in the movie Turn The Beat Around. Killer tap feet on this girl.

We rehearsed the tap dance at the production company’s office, also at my Toronto dance studio BDX. On the day, we filmed our tap dance routine around 8 or 9 times to get enough footage to create this masterpiece.

We were so wiped out. But I think it was worth it!

And after all that tap dancing, sweating, and spontaneously performing for Go Transit commuters… I hope you get a Presto Pass already!

Comment. Love to know what you think?
