OUR UNIQUE DANCE FLOOR
(one of the best dance floors in the country!)

We are very proud of our floor, genuine sprung maple - suspended on bespoke rubber backed hardwood cradles, each piece put together like an enormous jigsaw puzzle, then secret nailed, sanded absolutely flat, then buffed back down again followed by 3 coats of the finest quality seal, and then left for 3 days to fully cure. 

As a result, the surface is silky smooth and this combined with good quality well-maintained dance shoes will deliver a smooth flowing Ballroom and the required traction in Latin-American.

Supadance Shoes are the only brand we recommend, we can get these in for you with a special CDC discount - choose your style at www.supadance.com and let us know what you would like and we will get a price for you.
