Yes, Tom - looking to purchase the Opera House for a fourth studio. Commute will be rough, but the curtains are lovely. Finally decided against it, however, when it became clear that <B>I</B> would be expected to clean the chandalier

Has anyone here had experience building a dance floor?

What were some issues you faced?

How did you go about doing it?

What products did you use?

What was the best floor you ever danced on?

We build and hire portable sprung dance floors, see www.floatingfloor.co.uk for more information.

One of my teachers used to take classes in an army barracks hall or something like that, but when they were making the floor, they put old rubber tires underneath it, so that during the ballet classes the girls were springing like anything!

It helped reduce injuries, too!

Take to the Dance Floor
From The Dancing Times

This is the first of a series of three articles tracing the history and development of Harlequin dance floors, with special relevance to dancers and teachers whose careers depend on the choice of a floor on which they can perform safely and confidently.

In the summer of 1973 Pete Thomas, Technical Manager at the Marley Floors factory in Frome, Somerset (now closed down) was bemused by a phone call from a small UK dance company. The caller asked if it were possible to re-colour the underside of a particular retail sheet vinyl flooring from a patchy orange to a plain white, which Marley had recently rejected on grounds of cost-saving. Moreover, would Marley also replace the popular faux ceramic pattern of the top surface with a uniform black? With the equipment Marley possessed at the time the answer was a simple "Yes" - provided there was enough demand.

Technical talk
By Howard Bird for The Stage


Under all the hubbub of the main hall at the ABTT Theatre Show this year was an area which housed those exhibitors who peddle neither light, sound or stage kit. Here in the Assembly Hall were the Stage Management Association, Skillscene, colleges and societies. Across the gangway from the ladies of the Theatrical Guild were those stalwarts of the ABTT Historical Research Committee.
