Latin and Ballroom Dance Sensation Burn The Floor

International Latin and Ballroom Dance Sensation Burn The Floor

Coming to Wellington, Christchurch, Auckland

Six years after its world premiere, and playing to more than 3 million people in 93 cities, the original dance production of Burn The Floor® will bring its breathtaking show to New Zealand.

Tickets go on sale this Thusday July 6th and are priced from $47.00. For show times and tickets, call Ticketek or visit

"Burn The Floor® is all about harnessing the sensual and dynamic energy of Latin and ballroom dance, adding to that the elements of a Rock n’ Roll concert and Broadway theater to bring it bursting on stage,” said Jason Gilkison, director and choreographer and 3-time World Champion Latin Ballroom dancer.

The lavish and steamy production stars 16 of the world’s best dancers, a red-hot eight piece band, two extraordinary vocalists, sensational costumes, spectacular lighting sets, featuring all style of dance including Salsa, Samba, Jive and Jitterbug, the Waltz, Tango and Rhumba.

New Zealand producers Ian Magan and Gray Bartlett said today: “With Championship Dancers from Germany, England, Italy, Finland, Sweden and Australia, we believe BURN THE FLOOR to be the most ambitious and wide-ranging Dance show to ever tour New Zealand. It unashamedly caters to the vast audience that recently enjoyed TV One's excellent “Dancing With The Stars” – our only regret is that we only have two weeks available to present the live show in New Zealand!”

International producer of the show is Harley Medcalf, and BURN THE FLOOR is choreographed and directed by World Latin American Champions Jason Gilkison and Executive Producer Peta Roby.
