Always wanted to learn how to tap dance? It’s easier than you think! Check this out:
Heads up: We’ll finally have BEGINNER tap dance sessions at BDX! It’s taken a bit of time, but I’m pretty stoked about it. And they start SOON. If you’re interested, here’s the details:
Absolute Beginner Tap Dance
8 Week Sessions – SUNDAYS 3pm:
SESSION ONE: January 29th – March 25th
You’ll notice it says Session One. That’s because if you really want to learn, it takes at LEAST 3 sessions of basic beginner training before you start shuffling on your own. At least. We haven’t set the 2nd or 3rd start dates yet because we need to see if you’re *seriously interested* in continuing.
You’re in for a special treat: Toronto’s top tap dance instructor for beginners Rebecca Lewis-Mastoras will be teaching these sessions! Rebecca is 3rd generation tap dancer. It literally runs in her blood.
Another heads up: her beautiful baby Samantha might be at the classes with you. She’s 2 years old. And she’s ALREADY jumping for tap joy. Maybe Samantha will teach a class or two? I’ll be around to see you too, you can’t get rid of me. ;-)
ANOTHER special treat: Each session will only be $179 for 8 weeks of awesome. I’ll have a link online very soon so you can easily save your spot.
TAP SHOES? Yes, you WILL need to borrow or purchase tap shoes if you don’t have any. I recommend:
Malabar Dance & Theatre Supplies
14 McCaul Street, Toronto
Get a pair of FLAT SOLED LEATHER SHOES. No 3 inch heels. No shiny patent leather. No jazz shoes with taps on the bottom. They should be sturdy. If they look cute, like a 5 year old would wear them, don’t buy them. Look at the shoes below and get those. SECRET: Say you’re training at Byfield Dance Experience and they should also give you a discount.
There’s your info. If you have questions please CALL THE STUDIO at 416-917-1169. No question is dumb, so give us a ring and leave your number and email address, so Rebecca can get you more details in the next few days!
