Home > Companies > Harlequin Floors (British Harlequin plc) > Specifying Dance Floors - A Guide for Architects. This guide explains the differences between sports floors and dance floors as well as useful information for specifying for dance
With a growing interest in the provision of spaces suitable for dance – for professional performance and rehearsal, private dance schools and throughout the education sector - there is increasing focus towards specifying dance floors that both meet performance aspirations and conform to health and safety requirements. The purpose of this guide is to introduce architects to recent developments in dance floor technology and practice, specification issues – including aesthetic versus performance considerations – and why the choice of floor is also critical in minimising injuries to dancers.
