Spend Quality Time Learning The Moves From Toronto’s Most Sought-Out Instructors, At Canada’s #1 Dance Studio For Adults

It’s important for you to know that not every dancer makes a good dance teacher. Sure, they may dance circles around everyone on stage.

But when it comes to breaking down steps and the technique of teaching… some are just impatient, rude and just too into themselves to lead an effective class. At Byfield Dance Experience, that just won’t cut it.

When you join us at BDX, you’ll be with expert dance instructors who will make you feel respected, yet challenge and encourage you to grow and improve.

Wonder What Students Have To Say?

“A non-competitive environment, where everyone supports one another…”

Not only is Shawn’s class a great high energy workout, it is also the best therapy. When you leave the studio, you feel genuinely happy, not matter how you felt before you started the class. It’s all due to his amazing approach to teaching. He creates a non-competitive environment, where everyone supports one another, and every single person has an amazing time! I had a blast in his class because I learned a lot, danced a lot, was surrounded by good people, had a ton of fun, sweat a lot, and best of all, left with a huge smile on my face!! THANKS BDX FOR THE BEST DANCE CLASSES EVER!” – Brittany D

“A great way to stay/get in shape, and improve overall fitness…”

Taking classes at BDX has been incredibly enjoyable. It is a great place to dance and learn, no matter what level of a dancer you are. A great place for people to start out and explore dance, and a great place for people with training to get their dance on! It is a friendly, laid back, energetic environment with amazing instructors. I love each instructor’s diversity in style and choreography. From dancing, I feel an improvement in my energy level, my coordination, my agility, my flexibility, and my overall athleticism. I found that with consistency, dancing has been a great way to stay/get in shape, and improve overall fitness. BDX is a wonderful place to be a part of. Unlimited, ultimate confidence boosts when taking classes at BDX. Thank you to Shawn and the rest of the BDX family.” – Terence L

“I have never been surrounded by such pure positive energy… I’m truly addicted…”

Love is what you feel when you walk through the doors at BDX. Im gonna try to put in words how much I love love love coming here. It’s so much more than just a dance studio and I’m not sure if Shawn knows how special BDX truly is.

I have never been surrounded by such pure positive energy… I’m truly addicted.. Wild horses couldn’t keep me away. You will experience everything from excitement, encouragement to laughter and a butt kicking work out that is so much fun you will feel like your in a P Diddy video.

You will defiantly be challenged to learn and grow in your dance skills fir-sure .. But that seems like the icing on the cake because the experience of that “pure positive energy” touches all aspects of you as a person that can be taken into your every day life and makes you a better person.. See!!! Not just a dance studio… Sooo much more 🙂

Shawn shares his amazing talent but more than that he opens his heart to everyone that walks through the doors as BDX and we all defiantly feel the love. When you feel better you look better and everyone in your life benefits from that!!!” – Tammy F

“Incredible classes for an equally incredible price”

“I can’t say enough good things about BDX. Incredible classes for an equally incredible price. Thanks to BDX I can now consider myself a dancer.” – Jake

“After 3 months I feel strong, more confident and I can see changes in my body”

“Totally addicted! I’ve always had a hard time sticking to any workout regime. I would pick something up for 2 or 3 weeks and just lose interest or suddenly “not have time”. Not only have I stuck to two BDX classes a week but it gave me the motivation to find other forms of exercise for the rest of the week. After 3 months I feel strong, more confident and I can see changes in my body. I immediately signed up for the next session. The studio is such a fun positive space to be in. I never want to stop dancing!” – Michelle

If You Want To Be A Sexy, Shining Example That Hard Work Pays Off, Here’s What You Gotta Do…

Sometimes, we get so caught up in our own head that we prevent ourselves from learning something new. We say things like “oh it’s been so long, I can’t do that…” or “I’m too old…”

…and other nonsense that sometimes makes us unfairly limit and judge ourselves. We start analyzing and doubting so much that we don’t even give ourselves the opportunity to TRY. We become our own worst enemy.

Ever been there before?

So how do we break that self defeating mindset? The key to improving your skills is to START. Just start where you are. It builds courage.

Habits can be broken with positive intention and action.

Everything takes TIME. You can and will get there.

And in our Toronto Hip Hop Dance Workout sessions, you’re in the perfect environment to help you achieve your dance and fitness goals.

Energizing, Super-Fun and Goal-Oriented Sessions That You Must Attend Weekly

These are exclusive, registered term sessions where students participate one day a week, on the day you choose.

If you want to improve, you’ll have to make a commitment to yourself to be in class every week. This is not a drop in whenever you want, and “if you don’t make it you don’t make it” type of format.


*** TO BE CLEAR ***

No, you don’t get your money back if you don’t come. If that’s what you’re looking for, sorry- this is not for you.

Please don’t take a spot if you can not plan your schedule accordingly.

We have a reputation of creating RESULTS with CONSISTENCY. If you can not commit, then please let someone else have your spot today.

BUT… if you want to make time for yourself, in a high-energy class with regular faces you’ll grow to know, in a totally safe and fun environment where we encourage and challenge each other to reach new levels of dance and fitness week, after week, after week… and if you’re looking to surround yourself with other positive, hard working friends just like you, want to be inspired and change your life…

…then welcome to the club! You’ll quickly see how fast you can get better.

YES! You Deserve To Have FUN And Reward Yourself.

My friend, now YOU need to make a choice. You deserve to dance and HAVE FUN! You deserve to feel stronger, healthy and GREAT about your body! Why not reward yourself with some FUN in your life… AND get in shape at the same time?

It’s a no-brainer.
