Harlequin Floors is the world leader in advanced technology flooring. Established in the UK in 1979 it has established an enviable global reputation as experts in floors for dance, performing arts, theatres, schools and rehearsal studios worldwide.

Harlequin’s experience and reputation is founded on the manufacture and supply of a range of long lasting portable and permanent sprung and vinyl floors, which are preferred by dancers and performers at the world’s leading venues. All products are developed using extensive research into performer health, whilst placing trust and innovation at the heart of everything they do to become a brand that dancers and performers depend on.


The Harlequin Practice mat (pictured above) offers dancers an easy way to practise their dance moves anywhere. This 1m x 1m area of Harlequin Cascade dance floor comes in black, grey and (for a limited time only) blue, and comes with a handy travel bag. The mat can be laid over any hard surface (but not carpet) to protect existing flooring and to protect ballet shoes from getting dirty.

Harlequin Cascade dance floor is the performance floor of choice for The Royal Ballet, New York City Ballet, The Bolshoi Ballet, English National Ballet, Riverdance, Sydney Dance Company, Royal Academy of Dance, Sadler’s Wells, American Ballet Theatre and many more.

Harlequin Floors is established worldwide with operations in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
