Black Canadian Awards nominate Shawn Byfield
I’m OFFICIALLY IN! And I’m asking for your help.
It’s true. I’m one of six amazing artists (out of 20,000 online votes) officially nominated in the 2014 BLACK CANADIAN AWARDS for Best Contemporary Dance Act.
What a remarkable honour! I’ve been dancing for 30 YEARS, and have always been a supporter of my community. It’s wonderful to be recognized for what I’ve done- and will continue to do on and off the stage now and years to come. I’m excited!
Please VOTE HERE TWICE DAILY for
your favourite Canadian artists

Come support the Black Canadian Awards live show, March 1st in Toronto. It would be great to have friends and family cheering us on. You can get tickets at www.BlackCanadianAwards.com (group discounts available) and have a formal red carpet and entertaining night out.

Ok I admit: I’m a dance lover.
Seriously. From the dance floor to dating… who would have thought a sweet dance class can translate into a sweeter Valentine’s Day?
Or ANY day for that matter.
Because you don’t need a special holiday to dance- or to let someone special know that you got moves. In fact, the way you move on the dance floor is a pretty strong indicator of how you move somewhere else…
…so enjoy this throwback newspaper feature in Toronto’s Town Crier. I discuss with reporter Meagan Bowden three basic techniques to help build a strong relationship even AFTER the “day of love” passes.
Can you relate? Or do your hips lie? Share your comments,
