"Hot Feet is a heart-stopping, new dance musical created by the Tony-nominated Maurice Hines and Earth, Wind & Fire's very own, seven-time Grammy Award winner, Maurice White," according to press notes. Hot Feet features such EW&F hit as "After The Love Is Gone," "Boogie Wonderland," "Shining Star," and "September," in addition to six all-new original songs written by White for this production.

"Hot Feet is a story about believing in ones dreams and ambitions. Hot Feet is told through a beautiful young, talented dancer, Kalimba whose ambition drives her to dance. The Temptations of success take over and the price of ambition revealed. In a world were ambition and fate sometimes never meet, Hot Feet is a story of love, desire, and fate."
