  • Professional floating dance floors

    Dance is a very physical activity that requires a lot of turning, leaping, and jumping, which can put stress on bones and joints. Most dance footwear does not provide any cushioning or support, so the shock of dance movements can place a lot of pressure on the knees and back of a dancer. The best way to prevent against potential injury is by choosing a studio with a professional "floating floor". A floating floor is a dance floor that rests on a system of high-density foam, to absorb the shock of jumping.

    The top layer of the dance floor is also an important factor. A vinyl composite "marley" floor is accepted worldwide as the best surface layer for recreational to professional dance. A marley floor allows dancers to slide, with a degree of "controlled slip", but is not slippery so there is less risk of slips and falls. Very few studios use professional marley floors because of the expense involved, and usually opt for a regular floor tile for a studio floor.

    Our studio's floating floors are built with two layers of plywood over thousands of high density foam blocks and finished with a professional marley dance surface. This type of floor is known to helps reduce the risk of injuries and allow students to dance longer without getting tired.

  • Soundproof facility

    We are very serious about creating an environment that is appropriate and suited to learning music. In an ideal music practice or lesson room there should be no other sound heard outside of that produced by the student or teacher in the room. Excessive noise coming from the hall way or from other music rooms can be distractive and make even very well planned lessons less effective. We have taken serious soundproofing measures in the construction of our private class rooms - yes, to keep them 'private'.

  • Many opportunities to perform
  • Discounts on tuition fee for family members
  • A flexible and generous approach to lesson make-ups to accommodate busy families
  • and much more!
