Toronto Tap Dance Class For Adults Who “Used To Tap”

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. =)

These dancers really worked their ears!

In this Toronto tap dance class, we worked on counter rhythms and teamwork, just like a Tap Dogs show. There are four parts. And the most important aspect of this tap class? Listening. Really using your ears. That’s the most important skill a fantastic tap dancer needs to master.

Can you hear the different rhythms?

Behind The Scenes: Toronto Tap Dance Intensive PART 2

Toronto tap dance group improv

A wonderful week of tap dance inspiration happened in Toronto August 23 – August 27 at Byfield Dance Experience (BDX). It was a wonderful opportunity for tap dancers from the GTA and as far east as New Brunswick- to come together, learn, grow and make friends.

See Toronto Tap Dance Intensive PART 1 here…

Tap intensive Part 2: Starting on the 2nd day, IMPROV was the name of the game. Improvisation is a major component of jazz music and tap dance. It’s helped the art form grow and evolve. Yet so many dancers are terrified when someone asks them to “make it up on the spot.”

During the Tap Dance Intensive all participants learned tips, tricks and techniques to:

  1. Finally eliminate their fear and negative outlook of improvising;
  2. Understand and practice using many different improv strategies;
  3. Strengthen improvisation individually, as well as trading in teams and groups.

There’s a reason we put the “E” in IMPROVE. Because IMPROV is a constant work in progress.

At week’s end, we showed off to a small audience, everyone proudly showing their new respect and understanding of improvisation. Kudos to the participants, and to all tap dancers who continue to work on improv and embrace being creative!

– Shawn Byfield
