Burn, Baby, Burn!

Posted on 30 September 2009

Directed and choreographed by Australia’s Jason Gilkison, “dance theatre” is a milquetoast moniker for the two-hour inferno, Burn the Floor.  Slated for a limited 12-week run, the production blazed its way onto Broadway on August 2, 2009 and lightning-quick, broke box office records for the Longacre Theatre.  There, the conflagration will continue to blaze through January 3, 2010.


Reading like a Who’s Who of the dance world, the global cast of 20 boasts more than 100 cumulative national and international championships. Pushing the envelope of ballroom dancing, the hoofers gyrate, salsa, stomp, pirouette, boogey, and tumble across the stage in every direction that the human body is designed to go (well, nearly: this is a show to be enjoyed by all age groups).


The hypnotic and spirited dance fest is produced by Harley Medcalf, Joe Watson, Richard Levi, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch, Marc Routh, Raise the Roof One, Toppall/Stevens/Mills, Benigno/Klein, Caldwell/Allen, Carrpailet/Danzansky, Bud Martin, The Production Studio, Schaffert/Schnuck, and Carrie Ann Inaba. A Dancing with the Stars judge, Ms. Inaba’s association is by special arrangement with Dance Partner Inc. 


The highest of praise has been heaped upon this combustion, including:


“Hot, Hot, Hot!  A two-hour adrenaline rush.” – Roma Torre, NY-1 News


“Four-alarm sizzle!  Athletic, sensual and rocket-fueled.  The charismatic cast is polished to a high sheen!” – Joe Dziemianowicz, New York Daily News


“Utterly theatrical!  You derive existential implications that you rarely get from dance.” – John Simon, Bloomberg.com


“Heart-pounding!  Splendid dance and gorgeous dancers.” – David Cote, Time Out New York
