Kevin Clifton stars in the 2021 UK tour

Founded over two decades ago, the dance company Burn The Floor has cha-cha’d its way into becoming a global sensation, merging theatre and dance into a high-energy experience.

From the intensity of the tango and the romance of the waltz to the sensuality of the rhumba, Burn The Floor prides itself on ground-breaking choreography, stunning costumes, eye-popping lighting effects and live music. The Birmingham Express described it as “a show to remember”.

A huge part of its popularity can be attributed to the cast. In particular, Kevin Clifton, one of the most popular professional dancers to come out of Strictly Come Dancing, who returns to Burn The Floor to lead the 2021 UK tour.

Since joining Strictly in 2013, Clifton appeared in the finals every year except for 2017 and 2019. He finally lifted the coveted Glitterball trophy in 2018 with partner Stacey Dooley. Following his departure from BBC series in March 2020, Clifton turned his attention away from one dancing extravaganza and focused it on another.

“Burn The Floor is the show that ignited a spark in me and changed me forever as a performer,” said Clifton. “Through Broadway, West End and touring all over the world this show has ripped apart the rule book, revolutionised our genre and inspired and shaped me as the dancer I am today.”

In August 2020, it was announced that Burn The Floor would embark on a UK tour from 18 April – 8 July 2021.
