“It didn’t matter that I hadn’t put on a pair of tap shoes in over 35 years”

This is an awesome place! I started coming here about 2 years ago for tap classes and it didn’t matter that I hadn’t put on a pair of tap shoes in over 35 years. Everyone in the class was welcoming and willing to share their knowledge and experience.

People come here to achieve many different goals including (among others): to improve their dance technique, to learn something new, to improve their fitness level and coordination and to de-stress and have fun… After class I always leave the studio energized, inspired and looking forward to the next class.

“A welcoming and inspiring dance studio”

I have been taking tap classes at BDX for years. It is truly such a welcoming and inspiring dance studio. I always have a smile on my face while dancing and for hours after!

– Jamie Maddalena

“A patient teacher who taught with ease and confidence”

After trying out many stressful forms of exercise (martial arts, hectic gym drop-in classes, even more hectic solo gym sessions) I decided to give tap dance a try. According to online reviews, BDX seemed like a good place for an adult to begin learning tap dance for the first time. This was absolutely true for me.

I started beginner tap dance classes with Rebecca Mastoras at BDX in 2013, and found her to be a patient teacher who taught with ease and confidence. I continued taking her class for several years, and learned enough to advance to the intermediate class. Contrary to the other forms of exercise that I have tried over the years, dance classes at BDX are immensely social and positive. Tap classes at BDX are the highlight of my week, and I strongly recommend this dance studio to others.”

“Effort to make sure everyone feels welcome & comfortable”

This has been the best adult tap class I’ve ever attended hands down! Both challenging & fun and Shawn really makes an effort to make sure everyone feels welcome & comfortable & ready-to-let-go-and-simply-live-in-the-moment and i think that’s awesome 🙂

“Where Do I Get Tap Shoes in Toronto? What Kind Do I Get?”

TAP SHOES? Yes, you WILL need to borrow or purchase tap dance shoes if you don’t have any. We recommend:

Malabar Dance & Theatre Supplies
14 McCaul Street, Downtown Toronto
Tel:(416) 598-2581

Beginner Tap Dance Shoes
Beginner Tap Dance Shoes

What kind of tap dance shoes to purchase for class? Get a pair of FLAT SOLED LEATHER SHOES.

  • No 3 inch heels.
  • No shiny patent leather.
  • No jazz shoes with taps on the bottom.

beginner tap dance shoe

The sole should be sturdy and NOT “split soled” like a flexible jazz shoe. Think men’s flat dress shoe.

If they look cute, like a 5 year old would wear them with bows, DON’T buy them. Look at the shoes above and get those.
SECRET: Tell them you train at Byfield Dance Experience and you get a discount. It’s OK if you don’t have tap shoes your first week. Just come in FLAT, hard soled, non-marking dress shoes.

And bring a towel. Tap dance is an intense rush. Yes, you’ll get sweaty!

There’s your info. Each tap dance session will leave you inspired and feeling awesome. Yes! You’re finally doing it!

If you have questions please VISIT THE STUDIO and come talk to us. We’re real people. No question is dumb, we’ll answer all your questions with a smile.
