Today I was so lucky that my sister took me to see BURN THE FLOOR over at the Orange County Performing Arts Center.  It was wonderful!

Have you ever watched So You Think You Can Dance or Dancing With The Stars?  If so, then you have seen some of these great dancers on TV.

I love So You Think You Can Dance and my all time favorite dancer on there has been Pasha Kovalev.  When I heard he was in Burn The Floor I got thrilled! 

This guy can dance and dance he did!  Wow!  I couldn't take my eyes off him.  His partner was Anya Garnis who was also on So You Think You Can Dance and was one of the professionals on Dancing With The Stars. 

The two of them together sure do generate a lot of excitement with all their energy and chemistry.

When I was in New York, Burn the Floor had just come out.  I almost saw it then.  However, my time there was limited and I had other shows I wanted to see that caused me to miss out.

If you enjoy any type of Latin or Ballroom dancing you will love this show.  They did just about every type of dance you can think of.  Viennese Waltz, Tango, Samba, Jive, Swing, Quick Step and many others.

The show starts out with the dancers popping up all over.  On stage, on the sides of the audience, in back and down in front. 

You can feel the beat of the music pounding in your heart.  You hear the beautiful songs.  You see the dancers bodies moving in ways you can only dream about moving.

There is romance, passion, humor, excitement and even a little sadness that takes place.  This show gives it all to you!

If you are a fan of American Idol, you may remember Vonzell Solomon.  She was one of the singers for the show.  She has a very nice voice.

One of the last numbers they dance to is Proud Mary.  This was such a fun and lively number.  It's the first time I've seen the audience give a Standing Ovation when it wasn't even the end of the end of the show.   It was wild.

I'm so happy I was able to see this show and I highly recommend it all of you.  If it should come near you, please go see it.  I know you will love it too.
