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?
