Maksim and Karina to Make Broadway Debut Together

Maksim Chmerkovskiy and Karina Smirnoff will be making their Broadway debuts together next month!

The two won over our hearts on Dancing With the Stars, and now the engaged couple will be dancing their way to the stage!

DWTS judge Carrie Inaba is producing the show, called Burn the Floor, which is all about taking ballroom dancing to the next level.

The show was created by Jason Gilkison, who was a guest choreographer on season 4 of So You Think You Can Dance.

Gilkison created it as a special performance at Elton John's 50th birthday. The stage version made its world premiere in the U.K. in 1999.

Inaba said in a statement Monday, "I'm thrilled to get my feet wet on Broadway with this wonderful production. I've been a fan of Burn the Floor since its inception, and I am honored to be a part of the creative team that is bringing this wonderful show to Broadway."

Broadway previews begin at the Longacre Theatre this Saturday in anticipation of an Aug. 2 opening.
