Why the Floor Matters💃🏻

Screen Shot 2021-07-18 at 9.24.43 AM

Why does the floor matter?

There is nothing that that gets me more fired up as when I see dancers practice on concrete, asphalt or even grass.  Especially if they are jumping, leaping & turning. 

Even if the dancers are younger, growing bodies with soft bones are even more vulnerable to injury than adults or older students. It is important to reduce the impact on the body to prevent injury. This is done with a floating wood sub-floor.

There is some confusion regarding exactly what is a sprung sub-floor and why it is so necessary to have one for all dance activities.

If you are dancing directly on concrete or on a surface directly attached to concrete (wood, vinyl, tile, carpet) the direct impact to the body is approximately three times your body weight.

Over time you first experience fatigue and thereafter you are likely to experience shin splints, lower back and knee issues and possibly hairline fractures in your feet. All painful, debilitating and not productive dance-wise. Hardwood floors installed on concrete may look attractive but they are no better than dancing on concrete.

This is why we have a floating subfloor at our studio. A floating wood sub-floor is a necessary tool to maintain the health and wellbeing of students and teachers. Floating sub-floors also provide an environment for dancers to excel, take more classes and feel good about dancing.

There are different methods to creating a floating subfloor, but our pool noodle system as held up very well and is a great low cost way to create the environment needed for safe dancing. 

Watch our fun youtube timelapse of how our floor was made and installed!

"Miss Melissa and the other teachers are amazing. My kids started with dance camps this summer, ages 7 & 10, with a love for dancing but no previous experience. They had a blast connecting with new friends, seeing moves from guest artists, crafting, snacking, and of course learning their new dances. They admired their teachers and wanted to make her special gifts in return :) Melissa helps the young dancers learn discipline, physical strength, coordination, kindness and joy." ~Natalie Ulrich
