Passion still burns for dance

Burn the Floor returns to the Regal Theatre next month as part of a brand new Australian tour and Wragg said she was counting down the days.

“With the show’s touring schedule I only get to spend about two weeks in Perth each year, so whenever I get to actually perform back home it’s a really special bonus,” she said.

Burn the Floor is basically the pinnacle of ballroom dancing shows and I feel really proud to be able to show off what I love in my home town.

“All my friends and family get to come and see me and a lot of ex-Burn the Floor dancers also live in Perth, so it’s a big reunion.”

Wragg began dancing at the age of five and travelled the world extensively during a competitive career that brought her toe-to-toe with some of the world’s most renowned and respected dancers.

She was selected as the Australian representative for the World Amateur Latin Championships in New York and Slovenia and was a consistent performer in major national and international competitions before joining Burn the Floor in 2010.

“Ballroom has been brought into the 21st century; you’ll see things like a traditional Viennese waltz but set to the music of Led Zeppelin.”

Burn the Floor plays at the Regal Theatre, March 23-April 3.
