After dazzling theatregoers in more than 300 cities worldwide, ballroom dance extravaganza Burn The Floor returns to London with Strictly Come Dancing’s Robin Windsor and Kristina Rihanoff leading the cast.

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. 

Burn The Floor features the hip-swivelling, pirouetting talents of 18 leading international dancers from across the globe, choreographed by former world champion latin and ballroom dancer Jason Gilkison.

Re-envisioned for its 2013 run at the Shaftesbury theatre, this production of Burn The Floor has been updated since the 2010 production, with new choreography, music and orchestration.
