Description

Years before Dancing with the Stars and So You Think You Can Dance turned Ballroom dancing into must-see TV, one sizzling show was setting stages ablaze around the globe. The electrifying Burn The Floor, the Latin and Ballroom dance spectacular that has thrilled audiences in more than 30 countries worldwide, will make its Bay Area premiere at San Francisco’s Post Street Theatre.

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 premiere in the U.K. and quickly took the globe by storm. Today, with producers Harley Medcalf and former World Champion Latin and Ballroom dancers Peta Roby and Jason Gilkison at the helm, Burn The Floor has sold more than three million tickets in over 140 cities worldwide.

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 steam up the stage, Burn The Floor takes audiences on a toe-tapping journey through the passionate drama of dance. The elegance of the Viennese Waltz, the exuberance of the Jive, the intensity of the Paso Doble — audiences will experience them all, not to mention the Tango, Samba, Mambo, Quickstep, Swing — it’s Ballroom dance with a sexy 21st century edge.

Burn The Floor‘s troupe of 16 award-winning dancers, two percussionists and two vocalists hail from around the globe — U.S., Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia, Australia, Sweden, the Philippines — and include Australian Ballroom dance champions and World Latin American champions. The dancers, who hold more than 100 championship dance titles amongst them, move to the vision of artistic director and choreographer Jason Gilkison, whose work recently thrilled audiences on season four of So You Think You Can Dance and NBC’s Superstars of Dance.
