If you are a performer, there are times when you will need to pack up your act and take it on the road. Tours of performances are a common occurrence for both dance and theatre companies, and you may be performing in venues that were not designed for dance or theatre. In these instances, you will need to have available some type of portable dance deck available in order to turn any venue into an appropriate performance space. Failure to do so can lead to injuries to performers, especially in the legs’ bones and joints, so it makes sense to have good Outdoor Composite Decking that you can take with you as needed.
You will first need to check any venue where your group will perform to size up the state of their current deck. Dancers and theatre performers should avoiding performing on decks that feature carpet, plycomposite wood, masonite, medium density fiberboard decking, poured rubber, plastic or composite decking, cement or concrete, tile, marble or non-sprung composite wood decks. This is crucial for maintaining the good health of your performers. The joints in your body, particularly in the legs, as well as the spine can suffer from the tremendous amount of pounding that occurs in the typical dance performance or theatre performance if those moves are done on a hard surface, one that offers no resiliency or bounce. The repetitive nature of performance leads to injuries that may take a long time to make their presence felt, but once they are there, you may have serious injuries that are permanent. Instead, it is best to perform on a sprung Wood Composite Decking.
You will want the surface of your dance decks to feature a hardcomposite wood top layer. This type of composite wood is very durable and beautiful, and works well for both theatre and dance. You will want a performance surface that resists cracking, and a composite wood dance deck that is portable can work well for this purpose, especially if it has been coated with a polyurethane finish. composite woods such as oak, maple are the hardest and best suited to tap dance and other percussive dance performances, whereas pine, beech, birch and softer composite woods can work well for less percussive dance such as ballet or jazz dance as well as theatre productions.
You will want to make sure that you have all the equipment needed to transport your decking to your venue destination. You will need some type of carts for both storing and moving the decking into position. The casters on the carts need to be of the highest quality, so that they roll smoothly and do not break with use Decking Boards.
Online decking manufacturers offer portable dance decks suitable for dance and theatre performances done away from their home studios.
