FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
😊 Q: Will I be lonely, or feel like I don’t fit in?
✅ A: Absolutely not! You will make new friends, ESPECIALLY if you’re looking to be around others with a similar passion, ambition and challenges. Don’t be nervous!
😊 Q: I don’t have a lot of tap dance experience. Can I still join?
✅ A: Absolutely! As long as you’re open to learning and have a positive mindset. There will be others who don’t have strong tap (or jazz, hip hop, or musical theatre.) HOWEVER, search Youtube and learn some basics before attending. The more you learn in advance, the better you’ll feel.
😊 Q: Do I need to be a certain syllabus?
✅ A: Nope, don’t worry about that! Whatever syllabus you know will be more than fine.
😊 Q: My daughter is 12. Can she attend?
✅ A: Have a discussion with your kid, and explain the nature of this event. It’s a lot! If you feel your dancer is mature enough to handle the intense weekend on their own, plus feel comfortable enough around older dancers, then yes.
😊 Q: I’m not advanced, will this be too hard for me?
✅ A: This is not an “advanced” dance program. You’ll need at least 5 years of dance experience. Most importantly, if you’re a dancer with a big heart and open to learning and challenging yourself, then you’ll fit right in.
😊 Q: Can I take notes on my phone or tablet?
✅ A: NOTEBOOK is mandatory, especially for day two. You’ll be writing lots! Spend 10 bucks and treat yourself to a nice notebook with PAPER. =)
😊 Q: Can I bring snacks?
✅ A: You sure can. Keep them healthy and be mindful of allergies. But NO Redbull, Doritos, or other garbage for your body! Eat breakfast, come energized. I’ll also provide short breaks and healthy snacks on site.
😊 Q: What do I wear to Byfield Dance Intensive?
✅ A: Pay attention to this… To dance, wear whatever makes you shine! Choose comfortable dance outfits that boost your esteem and you feel comfortable in. We have tap, jazz, hip hop, musical theatre and workouts, so keep that in mind. Bring a towel!
😊 Q: What else should I bring?
✅ A: You must bring semi-professional comfortable clothes to wear Saturday and Sunday. We dance the first half, then we’ll change out of our sweaty clothes for interactive, seminar-style learning for the second half. You’ll have time to refresh so, bring deodorant, face wipes, towel, and anything else you need.
😊 Q: Is there a hotel nearby?
✅ A: Yes, quite a few. The Delta Hotel and the Royal Residences are literally across the street from the Rotary Centre, but more are within walking distance (Like Hotel Zed). I’d recommend checking in Friday and check out Sunday.
😊 Q: Can I pay the tuition in installments?
✅ A: YES! The installment plan is broken into 4 equal monthly payments. First payment today, then in 30, 60, and 90 days. That makes enrolling easy and manageable for everyone!
Here’s What You’ll Invest
Isn’t all this sounding great? Your event has at least 21 hours of instruction, so prepare to be fully present and open to learning without distractions.

But not here. For this weekend of inspiration you won’t pay even half that, which would still be an incredible value. By confirming your attendance to this awesome three day event today, you can guarantee your spot in the room for ONLY $797.
