When the team at Harlequin Floors reached out to tell me that instead of sprung dance flooring, sports floors were being installed in the new SHSU Gaertner Performing Arts Centre dance spaces, I was not happy.
Our dancers are athletic artists, but they do not wear cushioned basketball shoes! Most of the time their feet are covered by a thin piece of leather or nothing at all! I immediately contacted the construction team to tell them it was imperative that they put in proper dance floors. We needed the right floors and those floors were Harlequin. Needless to say, years later our Harlequin Activity and Harlequin Liberty sprung dance floors have contributed substantially to the first class character of our building
and our department.
