The Importance of Sprung Floors
June 30, 2018
At Hazelwood we take great pride in our facility offering top quality Junkers sprung floors to protect our dancers. In fact, our beech floors have just been sanded and resealed to provide the safest environment for our students to dance to their fullest potential, without damage to their joints.
Many parents and students may not be aware of the serious knee, back and joint injuries that can occur from dancing on un-sprung floors and it is important dance schools choose their floors carefully. A hard floor has the effect of causing serious return shock waves which can bring about injuries or premature wear to the cartilage. Sprung floors contribute enormously to the wellbeing of students in training and professional dancers alike.
