Behind The Scenes: Toronto Tap Dance Intensive PART 1

Tap dancers unite! 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.

Run by some Shawn Byfield guy, the 5 day Tap Dance Intensive briefly covered many topics:

  • Basic tap dance history, notable tap dancers from the past and their contributions
  • Lesson in music history, specifically focusing on Europe’s influence on North American music eras
  • Daily exercises to refine and improve our tap dance technique, musicality and listening skills
  • Improvisation techniques, and how to improve our confidence when creating on the spot
  • Crash-course in reading music, notation, traditional musical forms and how they apply to us as dancers

And of course, a TON of daily tap dance choreography that would make your head spin!

And if that wasn’t enough, not one but TWO popular, exciting and very special guests came in to teach their tap choreography, share stories of their experiences and INSPIRE. Here’s some shots from behind the scenes.

SHARE your thoughts! Comment at end of this post. Stay tuned for Part 2…

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.

Two New Classes To Improve Your Tap Dance Skills

Nov-2009

Toronto tap dance classes, November

Attention Hoofers!

Good news: I’ve been working hard to let people know we got some kick @ss tap classes running in our new home.

Since we have the space now, starting Tuesday November 17th I’ll be adding new Toronto tap dance classes to the schedule at BDX. YESSS! I want to help everyone successfully improve their footwork and ears.

Say Amen! Because Here’s The Good News:

Starting Tuesday November 17th, we’ll have an ELEMENTARY tap dance lesson at 5:45 pm.

This class is for those of you who used to tap and haven’t in a while. If you’re rusty, this is where you go. This is NOT a beginner class, you must have previous training.

Right after that, I’ll have an INTERMEDIATE/ADVANCED tap dance class at 7 pm.

If you’re at a stronger dance level, know your technique and been working at a competitive tap dance level, this tap lesson that will challenge, inspire, and push you to new limits.

If you’re nervous, don’t be! Sure it might have been a while. But there’s no egos or attitudes here to hold you back from doing what you love: tap dancing. And if you’re wondering where exactly you might fit in…

…then get your butt down to a class and find out. I’ll even let you take class for FREE to you know how your feet (and brain) will respond.
