Burn the Floor: Ballroom Gets Reinvented Tonight in Jacksonville

For one night only, you can see ballroom reinvented as BURN THE FLOOR makes its way into our area.

The show starts at 7:30 tonight and is only here for one performance at the Times-Union Center for Performing Arts.

The new Broadway production of BURN THE FLOOR broke box office records and enjoyed two extensions when it opened at the Longacre Theatre in August 2009.  Critics and fans around the world have raved about BURN THE FLOOR: The Independent (London) said “Extraordinary!  So hot it contributes to global warming.  BURN THE FLOOR will take your breath away!”  And The New York Times called BURN THE FLOOR “Audience-Dazzling!  Swiveling hips, steamy embraces and high octane tempos.  A nonstop display of pop variations on classic styles, performed with precision and polish.”

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.

Tickets for BURN THE FLOOR start at $41.00 and can be purchased at The Artist Series Box Office at (904) 632-3373 or www.artistseriesjax.org.
