Sam Houston State University

“When the team at Harlequin reached out to tell me that instead of sprung dance flooring, sports floors were being installed in the new SHSU Gaertner Performing Arts Center, I was not happy. Our dancers are athletic, but they do not wear cushioned basketball shoes! I immediately contacted the construction team to tell them it was imperative that they put in proper dance floors. Our Harlequin Activity® and Harlequin Liberty® sprung dance floors have contributed substantially to the first class character of our department.”
