Reviews

for Burn the Floor

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.

Review by David Cote from Time Out New York

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.

Review by John Simon from Bloomberg

**** (four stars) Athletic, sensual and rocket-fueled. The charismatic cast is polished to a high sheen.

Review by Joe Dziemianowicz from New York Daily News

Downright sexy. A polished production, with classy costumes and stunning vocals. Grade: A-

Review by Jennifer Armstrong from EW.com (Entertainment Weekly)

Hot hot hot...pulse pounding choreography. A two hour adrenaline rush featuring some of the best and best-looking ballroom dancers in the world. Awesome dancing...an extraordinarily gifted company.
