Burn the Floor Tickets

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. It's ballroom dance with a sexy 21st century edge.

"Heart-pounding...splendid dance and gorgeous dancers. By the end, the ensemble reaches its remarkable zenith of energized synchronization to Tina Turner's version of "Proud Mary." Like the titular riverboat, these astonishing dancers seem like perpetual motion machines."

Time Out New York

David Cote

"Burn the Floor is dance theater: comic and dramatic, sensual and lyrical, acrobatic and romantic--in short, utterly theatrical. A dance show I can thoroughly recommend to everyone."
