After previews began on July 25, BURN THE FLOOR opened on August 2, 2009 with guest stars Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff, both of “Dancing with the Stars.”  Anya Garnis and Pasha Kovalev of “So You Think You Can Dance” were also featured in BURN THE FLOOR during its tenure on Broadway.

BURN THE FLOOR embarks on a World Tour in February, beginning the 30-city U.S. leg of the tour in September 2010.

Created, directed and choreographed by Jason Gilkison, BURN THE FLOOR is the electrifying Latin and Ballroom dance spectacular produced by Harley Medcalf, Joe Watson, Richard Levi, Richard Frankel, Tom Viertel, Steven Baruch, Marc Routh, Raise the Roof One, Toppall/Stevens/Mills, Benigno/Klein, Caldwell/Allen, Carrpailet/Danzansky, Bud Martin, The Production Studio, Schaffert/Schnuck, and Carrie Ann Inaba by special arrangement with Dance Partner Inc.
