It's been said that true moments of joy come mostly through two acts: sex and dancing. Burn the Floor combines both, as 16 hard-bodied, high-energy performers spin, thrust, and grind their way through one show-stopping number after another. This is not your grandma's ballroom dance, and choreographer and artistic director Jason Gilkison puts together routines that are always entertaining to watch. The weakest numbers come whenever things slow down and the dance relies on a true connection between two or more people, something that never materializes onstage. But Gilkison knows enough about his two-hour event to keep these moments sparse, and instead builds the evening around explosive group numbers, like a swing-club–inspired sequence or a tribute to Tina Turner. These pieces are the heart of the show, and you can't help but get caught up in the energy, talent, and sheer love of dancing radiating from the stage.
