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 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  or . Groups of 20 or more, call (561) 651-4438.
