FOREFRONT DANCE STUDIOS

 

Each detail of the studios has been meticulously taken care of to ensure the best experience for dancers and teachers:
The sprung floor and the linoleum are fundamental elements for each studio, the flooring is created with an elastic structure to guarantee the health of the dancers and a correct study of dance. 
Bars and mirrors have been built and installed meticulously following all the safety standards. The mirrors have been designed to reflect an accurate image and the "double bars" are suitable for students of every age and height. 
Cutting-edge lights and air conditioning have been tailor-made for the two studios. The lighting system does not disturb the eyes during the intense hours of work and the air conditioning system ensures an ideal temperature and filtered air. 
Three spacious changing rooms are equipped with showers and bathrooms. Last but not least, the acoustics of the dance room have been designed for an optimal result and to ensure isolation from the adjoining activities.
