According to the Shaftsebury Theater website, “Jason Gilkison’s original Broadway production of BURN THE FLOOR is being recreated for a strictly limited run in July 2022.”

The event description reads: “THE REUNION features some of Burn the Floor’s most famous alumni including Aljaž Škorjanec of Strictly Come Dancing, Kevin Clifton, Janette Manrara, Karen Hauer, Dianne Buswell, Joanne Clifton, Luba Mushtuk, Kai Widdrington and Robin Windsor, with more names to be announced.’

It comes earlier this year as Kevin said he felt inferior next to Strictly stars Gorka Márquez and Aljaž Škorjanec – but said he finally had some muscle thanks to his training for the Games.

The professional dancer told MailOnline ‘I’m in the best shape of my life’ after learning 10 new disciplines for the ITV show, including athletics, pitch and diving.

After competing on Strictly for seven years, the entertainer admitted that while his stamina was impressive, he still lacked muscle and physical strength, although he could now feel his body shape “changing”.

He said: “I’m in the best shape of my life right now. I feel fitter than ever and that includes when I was dancing. It’s a different type of fitness.

“In terms of dancing, I could dance a long time and do a two-hour dance show and train all the time on Strictly to be able to keep going, but in terms of general fitness, I can feel my muscles hardening and my body shape change.

“On Strictly there’s fitness…and then there’s Aljaž and Gorka who all look different, and I never looked like that, even on the show when I was fit, but at Games, I feel like I’m in really good shape.”

Kevin, who left Strictly in 2020 after finding love with former dance partner Stacey Dooley, 35, said he was determined to take on a new challenge ahead of his 40th birthday later this year.

He added: “I’m 40 this year and in terms of career, dancing and performing, I’ve achieved everything I wanted to achieve, and I didn’t want to get to this point where I have everything. done this and 40… does that mean I’m resting now and accomplishing nothing else?

“I thought not… I’m going to push myself and why not come into 40 years in the best shape of my life instead of dropping everything. Let’s push even further and it was a good opportunity to be coached by coaches elite athletes and get back into incredible shape.

The West End star said his girlfriend, documentary filmmaker Stacey, who won Strictly paired with Kevin in 2018, had been supportive before the Games kicked off – but was also looking forward to laughing seeing him in speedos on live television.

He said: ‘Stacey thinks it’s hilarious. She keeps saying “don’t worry if you come last” and I keep saying “Stacey, I never said I was going to come last” and she says “yes I know but don’t worry if you come last, it doesn’t matter, it’s just good that you do all those things.” And I’m like thank you for the encouragement…’

Kevin also revealed that without Stacey he wouldn’t have landed a role on the West End show Singin’ in the Rain, which was his first big gig after leaving Strictly.

She encouraged Kevin to audition and get out of his comfort zone after doubting his abilities as a new tap dancer.

He explained: “Last year I was asked to audition for Singin’ in the Rain and you had to be an amazing tap dancer to do it and I’ve never tap danced in my life.

“I started to learn but I had this feeling of not knowing if I will be able to do this but it is my dream.

‘I went to the audition and I thought it was going to be a disaster and I was almost going to walk out but Stacey was like ‘don’t get out of this room, you get into it even if it goes completely wrong because you will always regret it and you never know what might happen.”

“I stayed in there and felt really uncomfortable, but I ended up getting the job, doing the show and it went really well.

“So I put myself in this zone where actually if I just push myself in different areas outside of my comfort zone, things happen and it’s not going to be such a terrible thing.”
