‘Burn The Floor’ is making things sizzle
The minute the scantily clad dancers begin to bump and grind their way down the aisles and onto the stage it’s clear that the Latin and ballroom dance spectacle known as “Burn the Floor” is going to be hot, hot, hot.
Fans of TV dance competition shows are in for a real treat. Not only will you feel like an expert for recognizing a Viennese Waltz, Foxtrot or Paso Doble, you’ll also see some very familiar faces from their time on your small screen.
“So You Think You Can Dance” alums Anya and Pasha, this writer’s favorite Janette Manrara and Karen Hauer are among the 18 dancers who light up the stage with some of the finest dancing you’ll ever see. From the elegance of the waltz to sexy Latin flavored dances like the Rumba and Mambo, this troupe brings down the house.
It’s hard to stand out in an ensemble of this caliber, but there’s something special about Sarah Soriano. Though her hot-pink hair is what first grabs your attention, it’s tough to ever take your eyes off her. Every member of this cast would dance with unbridled exuberance even in an empty theater, but Soriano moves with an inexplicable joy that makes it look like this is the night of her life.
The troupe is backed by impressive percussionists Joseph Malone and Henry Soriano and the superb vocals of Peter Saul and “American Idol” Season 4 second runner-up Vonzell Solomon.
