Dance floors are typically constructed like a wood gymnasium floor for several reasons. Wood floors have the right slide and grip characteristics for most dance styles, especially traditional and athletic dance styles as well as aerobic dance activities. Wood flooring with a resilient subfloor under the maple or oak top surface provides a safe, spring loaded feel that assists dancers and protects against joint and muscle fatigue and injury.
Dance floors can be designed for multi purpose space or for specialized professional dance practice and performance venues. Material selection and sub floor design are critical in either case depending on the goals of the facility. The ability and level of athlete using the facility will also determine many critical floor criteria.
