In the past two decades Burn the Floor has revolutionised Ballroom style. Combining jaw-dropping choreography and ground-breaking moves, Burn the Floor brings their famous, infectious and rebellious energy to the stage every single night in the UK, starring Strictly Come Dancing champions Kevin Clifton and Joanne Clifton.
From seriously romantic Waltz, to a futuristic Foxtrot, the passion of the Tango and Paso Doble cut right through. You will revel in the emotional power of the Cha Cha, the Samba and Jive, and be left breathless by the smoking, irresistible Rumba.
With Kevin and Joanne headlining this electrifying production, along with lights, costumes and eclectic live music, not just a 'feel-good' performance, we are seriously a 'feel-fantastic' show! Don’t miss your chance to experience the pure dance joy of Burn the Floor.
Kevin Clifton says 'Burn The Floor is the show that ignited a spark in me and changed me forever as a performer. 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 2019 I returned ‘home’ to Burn The Floor, and I am delighted to say that, in 2020, my sister Joanne will be joining me.'
Joanne Clifton says 'I’m not competitive or anything, but being a World Champion, I have a natural nose for the win, especially against my brother Kev. He’s always done everything first – he was born first, started dancing first, got on Strictly first, joined the amazing Burn the Floor first…oh wait, but I won the Strictly glitterball first, didn’t I? Burn the Floor? More like Scorch the Earth. Come and see the show if you want to see who the REAL Clifton Champion is! Anything he can do, I can definitely do better!'

Vesta Tilley laid the foundation stone of what is now the Sunderland Empire on 29 September 1906 and took to the stage on 1 July 1907 to officially declare the theatre open. Masterminded by two of the contemporary heads of British theatre, Edward Moss and Osward Stoll, the Sunderland Empire Theatre has undergone many changes since it opened but remains the North East’s premier entertainment venue.
