BDX Featured Dance Studio On WantToDance Website
Byfield Dance eXperience (BDX) in Toronto celebrated their one year anniversary as a studio at the end of October.
A veteran of stage and screen, Shawn Byfield knew he would always open a space for dancers of all levels. His goal? To open up a place where regular people can just come and throw down and meet other people who share the same passion for dance.
While the studio is open to everyone, BDX is geared to the adults since, according to Byfield, there are already places for kids and teenagers to go and take classes.
“What about the rest of us who watch So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing with the Stars? There’s no place for them to…” Read rest of feature on Want To Dance website

Here’s DOUCMENTED PROOF that a dance lesson helps to build confidence.
Not just women, but men also experience the esteem-boosting satisfaction a dance class brings. Not many other activities give you the freedom and openness to pose spontaneously!
Remember when we were young and fearless? We would do things and say things without inhibitions. Those were the days!
But then something changed… As we grew, we became more and more sensitive to how other people would perceive us. We developed a safety bubble to avoid ridicule and rejection. We stopped being bold, started being safe, and lost some of our confidence.
Take a look at the photos. As you can see, the power of dance allows you to recapture your strong, inner child.
From now on, know inside yourself there’s no need to hold back. Starting today, embrace your confidence. Let it out, and just pose!

I’m back from Jamaica! Relaxed and Irie mon.
But I haven’t been able to post photos because I had to work on editing this video instead:
It’s actually a video interview. A new reality show that focuses on women in their 40’s, is considering having me as a dance expert for adults.
I think I might know a guy who fits the bill! ;-)
Jenna and I literally filmed it between classes on Saturday. If they like what they see, they may have me as a regular face on their TV show.
The head honchos of the network will watch it this week… So if you don’t mind, gimme a 5 star rating & comment on the video so I can get the job!
