the studio

Concrete floors and other solid surfaces can create bodily injury as they are not "Resilient". A sprung dance floor absorbs energy while providing an even and consistent dampening affect. This is why our studios are all fitted with sprung wood floor panels with a surface finish for the safety and well-being of our students. This way, they can dance with peace of mind.
