BURN THE FLOOR is created, directed and choreographed by Jason Gilkison, former World Champion Latin and Ballroom dancer, and guest choreographer on the 4th, 5th, 6th and now 7th season of So You Think You Can DanceBURN THE FLOOR’s 18 award-winning international dancers hail from around the globe - Great Britain, Germany, Italy, Russia, Australia, Venezuela , Malaysia and the U.S.A. - and include Australian Ballroom and World Latin American champions. The dancers, who collectively hold more than 100 dance titles, move to the vision of artistic director and choreographer Jason Gilkison.   The cast is composed of Karen Hauer (World Mambo Champion and 7th series SYTYCD USA), Sharna Burgess (Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance), Sasha Farber (three-time Junior & Youth Latin Australian Champion), Jeremy Garner (six-time Australian Amateur Latin finalist), Sarah Hives (60 Minutes Australia), Patrick Helm (Welsh Open Champion), Ashleigh Hunter (ABC’s Dancing with the Stars Australia and Australia SYTYCD series 2, Australian Junior Champion and Amateur 10 Dance Champion), Katarina Stumpfova (9 times Slovakian Latin and 10 Dance Champion and 'Winner' of the Slovakian DWTS series 2009),  Gary Wright (British under 21 Latin Champion), Artem Chigvintsev (Finalist in USA 1st series SYTYCD), Melanie Hooper (UK Rising Star Professional Champion,  German Open Rising Star Champion and two-time Australian Professional Latin Champion), Emma Slater (Under 21 British Youth Champion and cast of London’s 'West End', Dirty Dancing), Santo Costa (Australia Junior and Youth Champion), Mirko Sciolan and Nuria Santalucia (British Amateur Rising Star Champions and two-time Australian Latin Champions), Damon & Rebecca Sugden (International Ballroom Youth Champions and three-time Asian Pacific Ballroom Champions) and Robin Windsor (Ballroom & Latin International finalist).Male Vocalist MiG Ayesa from Rock Star INXS. Female Vocalist Rebecca Tapia played Gabriella in High School Musical.

Critics and fans around the world have raved about BURN THE FLOOR and on Broadway The NY Daily News called it “athletic, sensual and rocket-fueled.”  John Simon of Bloomberg.com called it “utterly theatrical” and NY 1 News said BURN THE FLOOR is “hot, hot, hot.  Pulse pounding choreography.  A two hour adrenaline rush.”

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.  Helmed by producers Harley Medcalf, former World Champion dancers Peta Roby and Jason Gilkison, BURN THE FLOOR comes to the Kravis Center bringing audience members close to the action and passion of the dancers.

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.  It’s Ballroom dance with a sexy 21st century edge.

BURN THE FLOOR will heat up the stage at the Kravis Center’s Dreyfoos Hall, Playing Schedule from May 4 – May 9:  Tuesday, Thursday and Friday at 8 pm, Wednesday and Saturday at 2 pm and 8 pm and Sunday at 2 pm.

Tickets go on sale Saturday, February 6 at 10 am at the Kravis Center box office,
701 Okeechobee Blvd., West Palm Beach, FL. 33401.  Tickets also may be purchased by calling 561) 832-7469 or (800) 572-8471. Buy online at www.kravis.org  or www.ticketmaster.com . Groups of 20 or more, call (561) 651-4438.
