Burn The Floor on Broadway is a disco ball under which you can experience some of the best shimmying, rattling, and shaking of some of the best internationally acclaimed dancers. Every bit of this ballroom dancing extravaganza is as thrilling as one can expect. The musical recently opened at the Longacre Theater on Broadway. Before that, it has already toured to over twenty different countries with its debut in Bournemouth, England in the year 1999.

Nonstop Display Of Pop Variations

Jason Gilkison, an Australian former dancing champ, is the director and choreographer of this 2-hour fabulous exhibition of steamy embraces and swiveling hips on the invigorating live music. Gilkison has also worked previously as a guest choreographer in the popular television show “So You Think You Can Dance”. Besides the sexy guest dancers Karina Smirnoff and Maksim Chmerkovskiy, there are nine more dance couples in Burn The Floor. From sangria-scented paso doble to the rumba and from the lindy to the relatively sedate waltzes, the musical offers a thrilling exhibition of pop variations on the classical styles of ballroom dancing.

Some Of The Best Performers From Around The Globe

This Broadway musical has some of the best dancers from around the world. The dancing talents of the show come from different counties that include Malaysia, Slovenia, Italy, Britain, and New Zealand. With resplendent display of contagious smiles, tight abs, and tight footwork, the dancers perform with the strict precision a theatrical dance show demands. The timing of Burn The Floor on Broadway is just perfect because people in New York are now much more dance crazy than ever before – thanks to the television reality shows based on dance, such as "Dancing With the Stars".

Whirling Through The Ten Standard Disciplines Of Ballroom

The expert direction and choreography by Jason Gilkison make the show whirl through the ten standard disciplines of ballroom, including rumba and jive, paso doble, samba, cha cha, quickstep, tango, Viennese waltz, foxtrot, and waltz. The dance number “American Giselle Peacock” is a firecracker. The cha cha of the finale, "Turn the Beat Around" is truly infectious. The best thing is that all these dances are much more accessible and recognizable onstage to audiences even if they do not know the basics of ballroom dancing. There are some of the top-notch creative professionals in the production team of Burn The Floor. The music is invigorating and modern. In particular, the dance number "The Boogie-Woogie Bugle Boy" is a real showstopper.

Janet Hine has designed the costumes, which are loosely based on the original designs by John Van Gastel. What is more, you will not be watching the same costumes over and over again. The show involves 342 pairs of shoes, 50 pairs of tights, 51 masks, 750 feet of organza, 61 hats and headdresses, and 600 costumes. So, even if you are watching the show for the second or third time, you will have plenty of new excitement to experience.
