Burn the Floor

Dance doesn’t make it to television very often, so the recent flurry of televised competitions has the dance world in a tizzy. You may wince at the politicians, jocks, and party girls on display, but their expert partners are blazing across the screen in amped-up versions of the fox trot and samba. For every inept hoofer like Tom DeLay, the professionals are given a chance to shine for an audience of millions. The cast of the touring revue Burn the Floor is cherry-picked from shows like So You Think You Can Dance and Dancing With the Stars. That means names like Anya Garnis, Pasha Kovalev, Ashleigh and Ryan Di Lello, Robbie Kmetoni, Janette Manrara, and Karen Hauer in a program that combines high tension and low necklines. Because when it comes to the mambo, live action is even better than high def. SANDRA KURTZ
