About Our Studio
Studio built with each dancer in mind
Center Stage Dance Academy has been offering dance classes in various locations within the Huntley/Lake in the Hills area since 2002.
Our facility offers three dance studios with state-of-the-art wood sprung dance floors with Marley type floor cover. The Marley-type covering provides a safe dance environment built to reduce the amount of stress on the dancer’s body and joints. Each of the three studios is also equipped with mirrors, ballet bars and sound system. Window viewing is available for two studios and TV viewing for the third studio. Visibility is vital to gain a better understanding of what your dancer is learning throughout class and throughout the entire session.
Our teaching staff is expertly trained in proper dance warm-up techniques and body strengthening in order to take every measure to prevent injury and promote long and successful dance careers.
Studio Floor Info
Why we have sprung dance floors? The sprung dance floor system absorbs the shock and impact of regular dance movement. This benefits our students and teachers by reducing fatigue while preventing injury which typically results from dancing on hard, unforgiving surfaces such as concrete, tile, hardwood and brick.
A sprung floor is a floor that absorbs shock giving it a softer feel. Such floors are considered the best available for dance and indoor sports and physical education. They enhance performance and greatly reduce injuries. Modern sprung floors are supported by foam backing or rubber feet, while the traditional floors are cushioned mechanically.
