Dancing with the Stars fans in Jacksonville will be in a frenzy – dusting off their dancing shoes and kicking up their heels when the smok’n hot dance spectacle – Burn The Floor. Ballroom. Reinvented. – visits the River City this month.

The internationally acclaimed hit show is aptly described as “strictly ballroom with an attitude”.

Entertainment Weekly says the show is – Downright sexy! A polished production, with classy costumes and stunning vocals.”

Under the artistic guidance of former World Champion Latin and Ballroom dancer, Jason Gilkison (who is also well known for his choreography and judging on “So You Think You Can Dance”), the show is electric. Each performance shines.

The sensational talents of this global group of 22 award-winning dancers are simply amazing!  Stars in their own right – with over 100+ championship titles held collectively, these dancers are poised to set the stage on fire with classic dance favorites like the Viennese Waltz and high octane numbers like the Jive.

Whatever your footwork fancy… a Sultry Samba, a Tantalizing Tango or the Passionate Paso Doble, Burn The Floor will deliver!

A Special Pre-Show Treat: It is Twinkle-Toes time with the local Fred Astaire Dance Studio. Dance Instructors will take you for a spin around the lobby. Don’t be late…the lesson starts at 6:30 p.m. prior to the performance.
