A Harlequin studio floor may be based on technology, but the installation process reveals something closer to art

Janet Karin OAM, a leading dance educator and former lead dancer with the Australian Ballet, recently had the opportunity to see the expertise and skill involved in installing a new Harlequin dance floor at first hand. Janet explained: “Of course, I knew that Harlequin's floors were top of the range, but I had no idea of the expertise that went into tailoring each individual floor. A studio floor may be based on technology, but the installation process revealed something closer to art.”

The full story of the installation of Harlequin sprung floors is described by Janet on the Harlequin blog. 

Janet concludes: “My students unreservedly love this floor. The company dancers feel able to trust their Harlequin floor in the extremely taxing choreography of the present repertoire. Judging by the way Trinity Laban’s Harlequin Liberty floor in London is unscathed after 12 years of constant use, we can expect to enjoy ours for many decades.
