Architects and specifiers play a vital part when specifying the correct floor that is fit for purpose. Harlequin works with leading industry specialists to ensure our range of sprung and vinyl floors protect the health and wellbeing of dancers and performers. The floor is a dancer’s most important work tool; not only is it the canvas for their creativity, it also gives them protection against slips, falls and longer-term stress injuries. The correct floor is critical to the longevity of a performers career.

It is a common assumption that a well-designed sports floor will suit the needs of dancers, but this is not the case. There may be a temptation to specify floors for aesthetic or budget reasons, or to specify sports floors in the mistaken belief they will be suitable for dance but only a floor developed specifically for dance will do.
Harlequin is the world leader in advanced technology floors for the performing arts, entertainment and display. Established in the UK over 40 years ago, Harlequin remains the industry choice for the world’s most prestigious dance and performing arts companies, theatres, venues and schools, production companies and global events.

Harlequin’s experience and reputation are founded on the design, manufacture, supply and installation of a range of high quality portable and permanent sprung and vinyl floors chosen by the world’s leading venues – from the Royal Opera House to the Bolshoi Theatre, the Paris Opera Ballet to the Queensland Ballet.

Harlequin is the global leader in its field with offices in Europe, the Americas and Asia Pacific.
