“AMERICAN IDOL” FINALIST VONZELL SOLOMON
JOINS THE NATIONAL TOUR OF BURN THE FLOOR
The producers of BURN THE FLOOR, Broadway’s Latin and Ballroom dance spectacular, announced today that Vonzell Solomon of TV’s “American Idol” will join the touring company of BURN THE FLOOR on October 12, 2010 in San Diego, Calif., as the show’s female vocalist.
Vonzell, better known as “Baby V,” is an international singer, songwriter, producer, recording artist, model and actress. She was the second runner-up in the 4th season of the FOX Television series “American Idol.” Following her amazing performances on “Idol,” she launched her own record label, Melodic Records. Vonzell is presently putting the finishing touches on her highly anticipated sophomore CD release.
“We are delighted that Vonzell will be joining the US Tour. Her amazing vocal talents are the perfect match for the energy and athleticism of the dancers,” says Harley Medcalf, BURN THE FLOOR creator and producer.
The fall portion of the tour also features “So You Think You Can Dance” alums Anya Garnis, Pasha Kovalev, Ashleigh Di Lello, Ryan Di Lello, Robbie Kmetoni, Janette Manrara and Karen Hauer. All seven have been seen on TV’s “So You Think You Can Dance,” in the US (Anya Garnis, Pasha Kovalev, Ashleigh & Ryan Di Lello, Janette Manrara and Karen Hauer, Top 10 Finalists) and Australia (Robbie Kmetoni, 2010 Winner).
Years before “Dancing with the Stars” and “So You Think You Can Dance” turned Ballroom Dancing into must-see TV, BURN THE FLOOR was blazing a new dance trail and igniting stages around the globe. In BURN THE FLOOR, Ballroom Dance is totally reinvented. All the dance styles are refreshed and invigorated and leave audiences grinning with delight and screaming for more. You see and feel, live on stage, all the passion, drama and sizzling excitement of 20 gorgeous world champion dancers in a true theatrical experience, a performance with a grace and athleticism that The New York Times calls, “Dazzling!” and The Times (London) calls “the summer’s hottest ticket”!
BURN THE FLOOR is directed and choreographed by Jason Gilkison. The national tour of BURN THE FLOOR launched in Portland, Ore. on September 7, 2010, and continues through spring of 2011. For a full list of tour cities, please visit www.burnthefloor.com.
