ATLANTA -- "Burn the Floor," the spectacular Latin and ballroom dance production, was heating up stages all over the world well before the TV phenomenons "Dancing with the Stars" and "So You Think You Can Dance" ever hit the airwaves. On March 22, this exciting dance extravaganza, coming direct from Broadway, opens at the Fox Theatre in Atlanta.
Now that those hot TV dance shows have turned ballroom dancing into a national passion, audiences are thrilled that some of those TV stars are bringing their fire and grace to this Broadway production.
Featuring "So You Think You Can Dance" stars Anya Garnis, Pasha Jovalev, Robbie Kmetoni, Janette Manrara and Karen Hauer, the dancing in "Burn the Floor" is breathtaking and gravity-defying. "American Idol" fourth season second runner-up Vonzell Solomon's (aka "Baby V's") captivating vocals add to the spectacular, making it a must-see for anyone who loves breathless dance numbers and brilliant music.
This performance is part of the Broadway Across America 2010-11 season. Audiences in more than 30 countries have been thrilled by the fire and passion of the performers and the music. The 20 featured champion dancers bring grace and athleticism to the stage. From the elegance of the Viennese waltz to the steamy rhythms of the salsa, "Burn the Floor" takes audiences through the history of dance.
