Goodwin Performing Arts has a sprung floor for the safety of our students and for the longevity of their dancing careers.
More and more we are hearing of studios with unsafe flooring.
Dancing on concrete, vinyl or laminate over concrete etc is harmful.
The floors that you dance on need to be sprung, semi-sprung or cushioned—and, if possible, specifically designed for dance. Even in the short-term, dancing or exercising on concrete floors will potentially cause injury, pain and/or irreversible damage to not only your feet and legs, but your entire body.
