Our Facility

Dance Floor - Safety is the number one issue with dancers when it comes to flooring. If a floor is not absorbent, the body becomes the shock absorber, resulting in fatigue, pain and injury. All movement generates energy and dance is certainly no exception. Energy that is returned directly to the body is dangerous. Shin splints, fatigue, knee and back problems, strains and even broken foot bones can result. Students should never train, rehearse or perform on a non-energy absorbent floor, such as concrete. Any substance laid directly on concrete does not remove you from the concrete unless air is involved. 

In addition to energy absorbency, energy can be dissipated by resiliency. Energy leaves the body, is transferred to the sub floor that deflects and safely returns the energy. This is the "spring" in the floor.

Our raised dance floor is designed with the proper degree of absorption and resilience. Specifically designed for dance, it is comprised primarily of foam, wood and air.

The floor surfacing is a calendered vinyl consisting of a complex ‘sandwich' providing a slip resistant surface. This covering is used on the finest dance floors world wide.

One-Way Mirrors - We have installed one-way mirrors to allow observation of classes with a minimum of distraction. 

Changing Room - In addition to the restroom, a changing room is available in the back of the studio.
