    5.0 out of 5 stars Explosive, Brilliant June 19, 2000
    Format:DVD
    "Burn the Floor" (DVD), is a film of the stage play "Burn the Floor" and burn the floor they do. Wow! It's a year 2000 salute, a tribute to dancing couples. Many of the dances are interpretations, abstractions of the milestone dance styles of the 20th Century, performed by 23 couples, the world's newest crop of ballroom champions.
    The choreography is brilliant and dazzling, with each couple sharing the limelight in individual routines, but somehow it works together, as one. A time machine that whisks the viewer back to the smooth waltz, Hollywood and Broadway of the thirties, the Lindy, Fred Astaire, World War II and Glenn Miller. Then the Jitterbug, Zoot Suit, Reet Pleat and right cuff to look sharp enough to see your Sunday gal. Holy Moly Batman, we eventually zoom back to the 21st Century.
    "Hot", the finale, is a hand-clapping, finger snapping, mind boggling Mambo/Salsa of the 21st Century. It is all new, fresh, sexy, wet and hot. The music, the moves, the artistry of the dancers and the ambiance of the stage, draws the spellbound viewer into the action. After seeing this film, many will browse the Yellow Pages in search of dance lessons from their nearest studio. This DVD is a keeper: you can play it over and over and never tire of watching it.

    4.0 out of 5 stars It will make you want to DANCE!! May 21, 2001
    Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
    Any sort of ballroom dancing is terrific to watch, but this will blow you away. The video box will in no way prepare you for the exciting dancing, dancing, dancing that follows. THIS IS NOT FOR THE TIMID AND TRADITIONAL. Even I, at times, was jawdropped at the uninhibited sexual nature of it. Now, it isn't the whole show, but several sequences are indeed rather racy--in terms of clothing and dancing. But it you can get past that, it is a treat for anyone. Special favorites for me are the swing sequence and the Fred and Ginger bit. But all of it is spectatular and worth watching.

    3.0 out of 5 stars Burn the Floor: Camera Work and Editing Is Dismal April 22, 2000
    Format:VHS Tape
    Both the dancing and music is superb, BUT.... Unfortunately, this live performance was almost ruined by the way it was videotaped and then chopped-up when the tape was apparently edited by idiots. Also, I saw it on DVD and it appeared quite fuzzy to me in places. It's still worth watching, just be prepared to get a headache from the editing jumping from place to place about every 2 seconds. And if you want to see any of the dancer's faces, forget that too.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Hot, hot hot! January 3, 2006
    Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
    Prepared to be disappointed, my husband and I were awed by the dancing in this unusual and unique stage performance and too wired to sleep. We were not at all disappointed, though. "Burn the Floor" is a fusion of ballroom dancing with Fred & Ginger, Martha Graham, Bob Fosse, boogie-woogie, Buzby Berkely, Riverdance, ballet and jazz. The resulting amalgam is something entirely new and heart-racing. I cannot recall seeing so many fabulous dancers in one place at one time.

    The costuming was sensational, especially for "The Continental" number. It would be hard to get more elegant. The music was pounding but not overly so, the sound rendition was excellent, and the editor, Nick Morris, should get a special award for excellence. While he could have utilized far fewer slo-motion cuts which tend to throw the music track off rhythm just a fraction - enough for purists to be annoyed - he was mercifully judicious about his camera cuts. They were not overdone as in the Michael Flatley DVD's. In future DVD's of new "Burn the Floor" shows, should there be any, I hope Morris is used again -he is an artist in his own right except for a slight overzealousness about using slo-mo.

    As to the content, with the exception of the second number, a black-lipsticked punk-rock number that struck a discordant note among an otherwise stellar program, the rest of the numbers were mesmerizing. The variety of themes and choreography are superbly innovative, especially the use of props, and both create a pleasant tension by being unpredictable; you never know what's coming next.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A GREAT SHOW! January 18, 2001
    Format:VHS Tape|Verified Purchase
    A friend brought over the VHS, and I was so blown away that I immediately ordered the DVD. The dancing is so fun, energetic, and the cast is OBVIOUSLY having the time of their lives. It makes me regret sneering at dance classes when I was a kid! Like the live audience, I wanted to stand up and cheer--and start dancing in the aisles.
    Some people have quibbled about the camerawork and editing. Speaking as a professional film editor, I found the camerawork and editing to be first rate. The editing follows your eye, in much the same way you would if you were at a show live. Of course your eyes cannot give you zooms, crane shots, or closeups, but I felt the editing was inspired. It increases the energy of the show AND gives you a real "feel" for the dance...as opposed to the "Fred and Ginger" school of the uncut long shot master take. Yes, the cutting is quick at times, but you certainly see enough of the footwork that it's a joy to also see the closeups of the dancers faces and bodies. A static proscenium or rostrum camera would have destroyed the energy and rhythm.
    This video takes it's place with the DVD of "Cats", in my book, in terms of wonderfully conveying the freedom, joy, and liberation of dance.
