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.

Tap Dance at Extreme Dance 2009

13 Jul

Last week was the finals week for Extreme Dance Convention, run by Melissa Williams. I was lucky enough to be the tap dance teacher for the week with some super students. They danced their hearts out!

Here’s some footage of the tap choreography we did:
