FloorPlay is essentially a reprise of Ballroom, the show choreographer Jason Gilkison premiered in Perth last year.


Indeed, there's nothing about these performers that doesn't look good, as they leap, strut and sashay through Gilkison's high-energy moves. The stamina of the 12 dancers is phenomenal, with plenty of ensemble scenes featuring the full cast.

"This is probably a true representation of what we as dancers want to be doing," Whiddon, 21, adds. "When it goes on a competition floor it loses that special flair."

If Strictly Ballroom exalted the stereotypes and Dancing With The Stars brought ballroom to the masses, Floorplay is spicy, showroom fare.

From Terry Byrne in the Boston Globe:
‘FloorPlay’ couples sizzling grooves, ballroom moves
The heat was on high at the Citi Wang Theatre last night. But it’s the kind of heat that energizes you, and makes you feel as hot and sexy as the triumphantly talented dancers of “Burn the Floor’s” newest extravaganza, “FloorPlay.”

Fans of “Dancing With the Stars” will appreciate the dramatic playfulness among these performers, but these are not actors playing at dancing, they’re dancers par excellence, and the precision with which they execute their moves is breathtaking all by itself.
