Burn the Floor

If, as George Bernard Shaw quipped, dance "is a perpendicular expression of a horizontal desire," then the cast of Burn the Floor is one horny bunch. Come to think of it, these grinding, sweating, limb-tangling hoofers might be killing two birds with one stone: cha-cha-cha-ing their asses off while also turning each other on. In any case, spectators who want to see 20 extremely fit ballroom specialists in a two-hour workout, this is your show. Burn the Floor executes its moves perfectly: It's a heart-pounding, sexed-up showcase of splendid dance and gorgeous dancers. For more NYC theater coverage, visit
