Born and raised in Montreal, Quebec, Canada in 1977, Gilfred Bynoe has been lucky enough to have the chance to experience a lot in his life.
Growing up immersed in his culture he was automatically dancing in the DANCEHALL scene.
Starting at the age of four, he studied the art of tap dance for 4 yrs. At the age of eight, he became interested in Hip Hop and began to self-teach from watching videos and dancing with family and friends.
At the early age of eleven, he formed a hip hop crew (Gilfred and the KRS posse) consisting of himself, his sister and 2 cousins.
They danced around the Montreal area at various events and talent shows.
At the age of thirteen, realizing that he had the gift to inspire people to learn, he started to teach others for fun and loved it.
At the age of eighteen, he joined an agency and started to Acting and Dancing in various videos, commercials and TV shows. At the same time he joined a Latin troupe (San Tropez) and learned to dance Salsa, Merengue and Bachata. After doing this for 2 yrs, he had an opportunity to start teaching Latin and Hip Hop around Montreal.
Even then, Gilfred was already a visionary, increasing his skill base by doing volunteering work as camp counselor at a community sleep-away camp, and adding to his list of hobbies; music, acting, martial arts and basketball.
Having the soul of an entrepreneur, he opened up his own studio (X-Treme Dance Performance Art School) with a partner at the age of twenty. They started with 10 students in the first week and within three months the school grew to 60 students and the school moved forward. After 2 years of existence, Mr. Bynoe realized that the direction he wanted to go in wasn’t the same as his partner’s so he bought his partner’s share of the school.
The challenge was a big one and Gilfred realized that he could not grow as well as he wanted to personally, professionally and in business all at the same time. He then decided that the 3rd year was to be the final year for X-Treme Dance, until he could find a business concept that would allow everything to grow simultaneously successfully. He decided that the 3rd year was to be the last.
This experience set the stage for his current successes in the dance community and established him as a savy young business man.
He then concentrated on his work in sales (of which he had six years of experience), to manage a telemarketing company for two years.
He also was animating for a entertainment and DJ crew Superior Sound
Ask and you shall receive… Going back to his passion…
Wanting to really explore how many different dances that he has in him, he started to learn to teach Rhythm and Smooth Dances at Arthur Murray Dance Franchise Studio.
After two years of working at Arthur Murray he then got promoted to being the manager of the studio. However, due to difference of opinion for the direction of the company, sadly he felt after two years of managing the studio it was time to part ways.
He then opened Access Ballroom Studio in 2009. Pushing the envelope and finding his niche. As well as choreographing for artist's videos and shows.
In 2013, he started as an MC for "DJ James Karls" and surprisingly found out just how well he could get a crowd to raise their energy level
After a problems with the building manager, the landlord and the Province. He realized that Quebec wasn't the place to properly start his empire. He then moved to Toronto, Ontario to truly explore how far he could help people to grow as well as how much he could grow as well.
He loves this city and looks forward to what the future holds
