Dancers burn the floor at Sibaya

Performers in Burn The Floor will wow Durban audiences this month.

BURN The Floor, the show that revolutionised the image of dance, returns to South Africa for the fourth time: performing in the iZulu Theatre at the Sibaya Casino in Durban from 8 to 19 June.

The original concept of Burn The Floor grew from an electric display of ballroom and Latin dancing at Sir Elton John’s 50th birthday party in London, March 1997. There, producer Harley Medcalf, discovered the ballroom dance world and its charismatic people, with their deep intensity, commitment, discipline, burning passion and total love of the ballroom art form.

The show Burn The Floor opened in England in 1999. A decade later, after visiting thirty countries and over one hundred and sixty cities worldwide, it achieved its long standing dream, to bring Ballroom to Broadway – appearing at the Longacre Theatre in New York, followed by two hugely successful seasons in London’s West End.

Burn The Floor today remains focused on its ballroom origins, but this new edition to be seen in South Africa, the “gloriously sinful” Burn The Floor: Fire in The Ballroom, choreographed and directed by Peta Roby, has more surprises in store and promises to blow the roof off the theatre! It has the same rebellious spirit as the previous editions, though more daring with a theatrical rock angle – including music from Santana, Janis Joplin, Christine Aguilera and Led Zeppelin.
