A floating wood subfloor must support the main dance floor while providing enough absorption to protect the dancer’s body from impact. Subfloors from Stagestep provide a safe, shock-absorbent environment for various movement activities. Springstep II is a cost-saving, do-it-yourself floating subfloor option from Stagestep.
What Is Springstep II?
Springstep II is one of five options in our SpringStep collection, which has multipurpose floating wood subfloors for many dance styles. Springstep II is a cost-effective dance subfloor solution, because it is made for self-installation.

Springstep II also enhances dancers’ safety during movements like floor work, leaps and jumps.
Springstep II is a floating subfloor that provides good sound amplification, absorbency and resiliency. Its mid-range capabilities make this subfloor good for many dance uses.
Is Springstep II Right for You?
Consider these factors when deciding if Springstep II is right for your dance studio.
Certain dance styles require a dance subfloor that does not muffle sounds. Tap dancing, for example, makes noise with time steps and wing movements. SpringStep II will amplify the room’s sound levels so dancers can hear the sounds essential to their dance style.
A resilient subfloor deflects energy from active movements and returns it to the dancer in a springing motion, helping them jump and leap. SpringStep II has excellent resiliency ratings among the dance subfloors at Stagestep.
Stagestep recommends the SpringStep II dance subfloor for a variety of dance styles:
