Shawn Byfield

Kaeja Projects: Xtraordinary TO Dances: Moments in Reel Time (2017) Xtraordinary TO Dances: Solo Dance Xchange (2018)

Shawn Byfield is a DORA MAVOR MOORE AWARD™ winning choreog­rapher, GEMINI AWARD™ nominee, a two-time BLACK CANADIANS AWARD™ nominee, and a leading force in Canadian tap dance and entertainment. He's a veteran TV & film performer, renowned dance instruc­tor, and creator of Canada's #1 dance studio for adults BYFIELD DANCE EXPERIENCE. "If your idea of tap dancing comes from old black-and-white Fred Astaire movies, you obviously haven't seen Shawn Byfield. The local tap sensation's fancy footwork moves to an R&B/soul groove, and his influences come from the contemporary street, not the urbane nightclub." - Glenn Sumi, NOW MAGAZINE

Kaeja d’Dance would like to acknowledge that we are situated upon traditional territories. Our artists, collaborators, staff and team are grateful to be creating art on this land that has been nurtured by recorded and unrecorded human activity for by thousands of years. We honour and respect the traditional lands and waterways of the Wendat, Anishinabek Nation, the Haudenosaunee Confederacy, the Mississaugas of the Credit First Nation, and the Métis Nation. We are in the 'Dish with One Spoon' territory - a treaty between these nations reflecting a commitment to share the territory and protect the land. We also recognize the enduring presence of diverse Indigenous peoples on this land.
