“Having a high quality dance floor is the most important resource investment any dance studio has to make. We chose Stagestep™ for three reasons. One, it has a proven pedigree – it is used by major companies across the US. Secondly, Stagestep™ as a company were with us all the way through the process and supported us from day one. Third, cost. Despite its high quality it is considerably more cost effective than its nearest competitor. I, and my incredibly demanding dance staff are delighted with the floors.”

Giles Auckland-Lewis

“The Hershey Theatre is located in downtown Hershey, PA, and has established itself as the area’s premier performing arts center. We present the finest in touring Broadway shows, classical music and dance attractions, and world-renowned entertainers. It is safe to say that since we present the best, we expect the best.

In the spring of 2008, we purchased Super Bravo C Marley flooring from Stagestep™-Aeson Inc. With multiple dance recitals, professional dance companies, and first-class events gracing our stage, our standard of product to serve as a dance floor is top notch. The staff and sales representative at Stagestep™-Aeson were professional, informative, and prompt in assisting us to find the product style that would best suit our performance needs. They understood our requirements and went above and beyond to assure that we would be pleased with the floor.

The floor has sustained thousands of leaps, millions of taps, and is still in remarkably good condition for the number of times it has been rolled and unrolled. In the Summer of 2011 when four of the pieces were damaged by a visiting company, the staff at Stagestep-Aeson once again stepped to the plate by helping us replace the damaged pieces in a timely fashion.

While I’m confident our floor will last us well into the future, it is comforting to know that Stagestep™-Aeson will always be there to provide us with exceptional service and quality products that meets our needs. We will certainly recommend Stagestep™-Aeson to others who are in the market for dance floor.”

“Canada DanceSport is thrilled to call Stagestep™its official flooring supplier. Our Encore floor made its debut at our 2008 international dancesport competition, and the quality of this flooring system is exceptional. We have received consistently excellent feedback from everyone who has experienced this floor – from volunteers overseeing its installation, to judges and competitors who spend many hours standing and dancing on it. Furthermore, the responsive and flexible service Canada DanceSport receives from Stagestep™ allows us to protect our valuable investment. We are looking forward to hosting the 2009 IDSF Senior I Standard World Championships when our Stagestep™Encore floor will play center stage to ballroom’s best and brightest. Stagestep™ helps Canada DanceSport bring the world to your feet!”

“Thanks SO much for this flooring! I’ve put it down – it was so easy – and it’s perfect for what I need both in size and material. Thanks again so much for your help. Before finding yours, I had been in contact with (another worldwide supplier of performing arts flooring) – they couldn’t do a custom job like you can, and they were nearly 4 times your price for what I would have had to do with theirs (which would have been labor-intensive for me, in addition to their cost). I will be recommending you to anyone who is thinking of putting in a similar type of floor for their own uses, and even, perhaps to the school I go to, as they have floors which are in dire need of replacement. Thanks again so much!”

Thank you, Stagestep™. Years ago I invested in Springstep, and when I finally bought my own building I was able to take it with me. With all the crazy expenses of buying and remodeling a 150 year old building, I was thrilled to save money knowing my subfloor and Timestep could come with me. 

Nancy Solomon Rothenberg

I bought Timestep in 1996. It is still in great condition and is still used today!
