Burn The Floor Lyrics
It was the first performance of this show in 1997. Geographical girth of the show is very extensive. It has visited more than 130 countries around the world – a little more than 2/3 of the political map of the globe. At the 50th birthday of Elton John, performers from the show gave 10 minutes of vivid dance.
Harley Medcalf – producer from Australia – has developed it for 2 years, and at first, the main roles were given to Australian dancers of ballroom dancing Peta Roby & Jason Gilkison. In 2001, when the show was on Broadway, Ukrainian dancers Karina Smirnoff & Maksim Chmerkovskiy were taken to perform the leading roles. The show also invited dancers from various national dance shows such as So You Think You Can Dance, Strictly Come Dancing and Dancing With The Stars. The number of participants of it was up to 40 people, while the leading roles played up to 8 players in 4 pairs.
Jason Gilkison became choreographer for show of Broadway’s format in 2001. And in 2005, when the show was in Australia, a whole production was named after him. During life, this show grew to large production when it needed 7 buses to transport the participants, costumes and other stuff, increasing the budget and costs. So its creators rethought it in 2005. It has become more theatrical and more focused on the dancers and their dance numbers.
After the Broadway, national tour was started in USA, which has grown into a tour among other countries and more than a dozen countries were covered only in the framework of this campaign.
West End saw a production in 2010, which was there for a few months. The show was attended by local stars of the Britain dance show Strictly Come Dancing – Ali Bastian & Brian Fortuna. In 2013, the show moved to the Shaftesbury Theatre, where it stayed for four months, instead of originally planned 6.
