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. :)

But first time around, five years ago, Burn the Floor was a disappointment. Third time around, after what you could only describe as an extreme makeover, it's better - though it still doesn't hit the spot from start to finish.

The best things about it are the skill and energy of the 36 performers. They are top dancing couples from around the world...

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.
