Burn the Floor is a breathtaking blend of Latin and Ballroom dance first conceived as a special performance at Sir Elton John's 50th birthday celebration in 1997.
Two years later, the show made its world première in the U.K. and quickly took the globe by storm. Helmed by producers Harley Medcalf, former World Champion dancers Peta Roby and Jason Gilkison, Burn the Floor comes to Civic Theatre, bringing audience members this/close to the action and passion of the dancers.
From Harlem’s hot nights at The Savoy, where dances such as the lindy, foxtrot and charleston were born, to the Latin Quarter where the cha-cha, rumba and salsa steamed up the stage, Burn the Floor takes audiences on a journey through the passionate drama of dance.
The new Broadway production of Burn the Floor comes to Auckland following an engagement at the Longacre Theatre, where it broke the box office record and enjoyed two extensions.
The New York critics raved:
The NY Times called Burn the Floor audience-dazzling! Swivelling hips, steamy embraces and high-octane tempos. A non-stop display of pop variations on classic styles, performed with precision and polish.”
Time Out New York said it was heart-pounding! Splendid dance and gorgeous dancers!”
Entertainment Weekly declared it, “downright sexy! A polished production, with classy costumes and stunning vocals.”
