Extraordinary! Will take your breath away.” London Independent
Electronic recycling drive at the Straz Center offers
discounted tickets to Burn the Floor
Tampa, Fla. ─ The David A. Straz, Jr. Center for the Performing Arts is partnering with SEER, Secure Environmental Electronics Recycling, to host an electronics recycling drive during the Straz Center engagement of the international hit dance sensation Burn the Floor.

Those who stop by the Straz Center stage door to recycle electronics anytime between now and Friday will receive a voucher for 50% off tickets to a performance Tuesday-Friday of Burn the Floor, which plays the Straz Center April 24-29. Each discounted voucher is good for two tickets and should be redeemed at the Straz Center Ticket Office 90 minutes before the selected performance. Items can also be dropped off directly at the ticket office during this window of time. Limit of two vouchers per person with multiple items. Restrictions apply.

Recycling electronic waste conserves landfill space and prevents toxics from being released into the environment. Collected items will be utilized for recovery and reuse of valuable materials. For a smooth, fast drop off, all cabling should be removed from devices and placed in a bag.

Items accepted at no charge include TVs (in one piece/no broken glass), laptops, PCs, keyboards, floppy/disk drives, mice, printers, microwaves, UPS batteries, PC monitors, CD-Roms, modems, fax machines, test equipment, circuit boards, networking equipment, phones, cell phones, PC power supplies, scanners, copiers, cabling, typewriters and stereos/VCR/CD players.

Items not accepted include console/projection TVs, toaster ovens, washers, ovens, mixers/blenders, battery powered tools, tires, gas powered tools, freezers, household trash, humidifiers, refrigerators, dehumidifiers, vacuum cleaners, washer/dryers and car batteries.

Burn the Floor brings together the talents of 20 award-winning international dancers from around the globe – England, Italy, South Africa, Australia, Slovenia, Venezuela, Uruguay, Philippines and the United States – and includes Australian Ballroom and World Latin American champions. The dancers, who collectively hold more than 100 dance titles, move to the vision of artistic director and choreographer Jason Gilkison, former World Champion Latin and Ballroom dancer, and guest choreographer and judge on So You Think You Can Dance
