Toronto Tap Dance Class To Brubeck

Toronto Tap Dance Class To “Take Five” By Dave Brubeck Quartet

This is one of my favourite jazz songs to tap to! This tap class forced us to think outside the usual 4/4 time signature and work with 5 beats per bar.

Tap dancing to different time signatures adds so many colourful layers and rhythmic ideas to the mix! Comment, share and enjoy.

Tap Dancing Gets Better at BDX Toronto

23 Nov

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.
