World renowned Australian ballroom dance company Burn the Floor has for the very first time collaborated with the hugely talented First Nations star Mitch Tambo to create a brand-new dance production that will tour the east coast of Australia from 21 July to 13 August playing Melbourne, Maryborough, Toowoomba, Brisbane, Port Macquarie, Newcastle, Canberra, Wyong, Sydney, Penrith and Chatswood.

This ground-breaking and inspirational journey embraces a mix of Indigenous culture and music with favourite ballroom and Latin styles, from waltz, foxtrot, samba, rumba, tango, to swing and jive, mixed with Mitch Tambo’s unique sound, accompanied his vocalist wife and partner Lea Firth who will be joined by First Nations’ outstanding, contemporary dancer, Albert David. 

Mitch will perform his own musical compositions, joined by the energy and passion of 20 dancers, vocalists, and musicians.  They will be backed by a soundtrack of Australian rock classics including Midnight Oil Power and the Passion, INXS Never Tear Me Apart, ACDC Highway to Hell, the Bee Gees Staying Alive, Cold Chisel Khe Shan and Archie Roach anthems, plus You’re the Voice will be sung by Mitch in the Gamilaraay language and Walanbaa along with other brilliant songs he has written.
