I am thinking of getting some dance flooring for a small(private)studio; possibly linoleum. <BR>Can anyone tell me about the different kinds of dance floors there are around, especially those which are semi permanent, and what is best suited for small studios?<P>It only be for ballet and contemporary, so sound isn't an issue.<P>Thanks Image<P><BR>

Well, Purple - my experience in this is limited but of course as you know you need a sprung floor - raised - never on cement. <P>I have danced on linoleum - in fact one of the best floors for dance in this city is covered with that. If I were you I would take a pair of each of the kinds of shoes that will be worn by your students; pointe shoes, slippers, etc., and actually put them on in the store and try it out. That is what I did. It takes a bit of bravery to do that in a shop - but who cares? It didn't bother me at all, the salesclerk was happy to make a sale and the floor was great.
