I am planning on installing a dance floor in a room in my (next) house. What should I plan for? I want the "sprung" floor, so it is cushiony on the feet. The room may already have a w/w carpet, and it's in the basement, so it's probably over concrete. How about just putting wood tiles (the snap and lock type) right on top of that, and using the cushioning effect of the carpet and the padding for the "sprung" feel? I don't care about how the edge seams join the walls. They don't have to. Alternatively, how about getting one of those ready-made dance floor kits and laying it over the carpeting/padding? You can tell I am no handy-person and have no clue about all this, so please don't laugh if what I'm suggesting is too stupid I take my hat off to cornutt for the house he built, btw. Alternatively, the room I choose as the dance studio could be on the first or second floor, so there is already wood flooring and framing and so on. Is that enough to give the "sprung" effect? Or do I have to put on those cross layers of wood to get that sprung effect? Of course, I'm not going to be putting anything. I'm going to hire someone to do it, but I need to understand intelligently what I'm trying to do. Ideas? And, mods, may be you can move this to the "General Dance Discussion" forum? It probably belongs there. Thanks.
