The seven spacious dance studios are purpose-built with Harlequin Activity sprung floor and Harlequin Cascade vinyl performance floor!

Harlequin Activity sprung floors provide shock-dampening to avoid a ‘trampoline’ effect plus area elasticity to offer identical characteristics across the whole floor, offering better protection from injuries for both teachers and performers.

  • Average shock absorption – 64%

Harlequin Cascade has delighted generations of professional dancers, artistic directors, technical and stage managers. The silky-smooth embossed surface provides excellent grip and is often described as giving ‘warmth’ to a dance performance.

The vinyl was designed with the focus on improving hygiene. Harlequin have now produced a new, improved Cascade with BioCote® antimicrobial protection. It is the Harlequin Cascade that you know and love but with an added ingredient with proven antibacterial properties that helps keep the floor hygienically clean, so reducing the risk of cross contamination by working constantly to reduce the presence of microbes on the surface of the flooring.

Harlequin Cascade is the ultimate heavy-duty vinyl dance floor, with mineral fibre reinforcement for stability and durability. It is widely used as a ballet floor, but is also a popular choice for many other dance styles
