Strictly Come Dancing pros Robin Windsor and Kristina Rihanoff, as well as Dancing newbie Karen Hauer, are set to star in the ultimate ballroom dance musical Burn the Floor. This international sensation will play London’s Shaftesbury Theatre March 6 through September 1, with an opening night set for March 11.
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 elegance of the Viennese Waltz, the exuberance of the Jive, the intensity of the Paso Doble - audiences will experience them all, as well as the Tango, Samba, Mambo, Quickstep, and Swing.
Burn the Floor has played over 300 cities worldwide including New York. The show opened at Broadway’s Longacre Theatre in August 2009 and played a limited engagement through January 2010. The West End production will feature exciting new choreography by dance mastermind Jason Gilkison, as well as new music and orchestrations.
