The Importance of Proper Dance Flooring (Installed at Both DP Locations)

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.  

 

Lateral foot support is also an element which is often overlooked when it comes to the nature of your dance floor. Sinking into an absorbent floor increases your chances of turning an ankle. Relying solely on absorbent materials or systems that are too spongy, is the leading cause of ankle injury.

 

At Dance Place Welland, our 2.5" raised dance floors are designed with the proper degree of absorption and resilience. We have recently installed the latest, technologically advanced flooring, specifically designed for some of the world's finest venues. We are confident that any dancer, and their body, will appreciate and feel the elements of safety and security in our floors.  Parents can be assured that children will train safely, while their young bodies continue to grow and strengthen, injury-free.
