In reference to the first few remarks on this topic, I love RiverDance and believe that is a brilliant "work of art" and display of skill, but I also think that Burn The Floor is for the most part, well choreographed and well performed. Although in a few places it lacks accuracy, I think overall, Burn The Floor is a great energetic, ambitious way of bringing Ballroom dance out of the dark and into the 21st century. :)

A decade ago, the word "foxtrot" might have brought to mind only a newspaper cartoon, and "tango" conjured up an image of stalking about like Groucho Marx with a rose in his teeth. But when Australian choreographer Jason Gilkison first worked on "Burn the Floor," he hoped to evolve the foxtrot and the tango for the 21st century, while getting back to the heart of what moves dance audiences.
