What makes a dancer great? Skill, passion, practice, and heat. All of this can be found in “Burn the Floor”, a talented entourage of ballroom dancers. It’s appeal can be found not only in the dancing, but in the brightly colored costumes, themes, background displays, and experience of the night itself. Each dancer burns the floor with the finesse they bring to the stage. This is their life. Sit back and watch as these dancers “burn the floor.” You can’t miss out on this!
The event is planned for April 24th-29, 2012 at 7:30 pm: not so early that you’re not in the mood to be entertained, but not late enough to where you can’t grab a bite to eat afterward. Balcony tickets start at $68.00 per person, gallery at $95.00, and orchestra is at $150.00/$165.00. While this may seem a little expensive, what you’re getting is a culture and an art form that has disappeared for some time. The venue, Straz Center, is an elegantly set up room ready for you to envelop the entire experience and be treated as an honored guest.
To promote it: I would get flyers all over the Tampa area and have a literal burning floor plastered over the pages. Twitter, facebook, and the dancer’s website would have tons of video uploaded from previous years to let potential guests know what they would be experiencing. Then, two weeks before the show dates, I would have three or more of the dancers appear on a busy night on the club strips to do a “teaser”, performing one song to promote the event. Finally, I would love to have each dancer wear one of their costumes wherever they want at all times: this would generate suspense and hopefully questions about why they are wearing it.
