floor issues


Recommended Posts

My almost 18 year old has temporarily relocated to a major city to try professional level classes at a variety of studios. The studio she has most of her classes in is very old and the floors are extremely hard. She already has a shin splint and a very sore bunion from the jumping just after 4 days. Would it be wiser to avoid this particular studio and find a studio with sprung floors?

If the floors are not sprung, yes, go to another school. Sometimes, though, older studios in old buildings have wood floors which are not based on cement, and should be okay, especially if they are not on ground floor. These floors should not need to be raised or sprung. Many old studios in NY had these kind of studios.
