Collage Dance Collective

“The safety and well-being of our dancers is one of my top priorities, so installing premier dance flooring in our new Center for Dance where our professional ballet company and more than 400 students within our conservatory train each week was very important to me. Utilizing Harlequin WoodSpring® sprung floor systems in our studios is one of the intentional ways we invest in the wellbeing and dreams of the diverse professional artists and budding dancers we serve.”

State Ballet of Rhode Island

“After receiving a grant to upgrade our outdoor stage, we knew we wanted Harlequin Cascade™. The weather was colder than expected for our first performance on it, but it felt warm, and you could see the dancers didn’t hesitate to run or step into arabesque. To have a safe floor for dancers to not worry about shin splints or something of that nature, that’s everything. The dancers have to feel secure.”
