The "Floating" Professional Dance Floor
Dance is a very physical activity that requires a lot of jumping, which can put stress on bones and joints. Most dance footwear does not provide any cushioning or support, so the shock of dance movement can place a lot of pressure on the knees and back of a dancer. MMDA helps prevent injuries by using a a professional "sprung floor" which consists of 2 layers of plywood which rests on 2 inch sections of neoprene.
We use a vinyl composite "marley" floor - accepted worldwide as the best surface layer for recreational to professional dance. Pacific Northwest Ballet, Boston Ballet and San Francisco Ballet all use Marley floors as their dance surface. A Marley floor allows dancers to slide without it being slippery so there is less risk of slips and falls. Very few studios use professional marley floors because of the expense involved, and usually opt for a regular floor tile for a studio floor. 4 Things Every Parent Should Know (PDF)
