Renting studio space and hardshoes

So we are facing an issue with studio space and hardshoe. We've found a great space with a great wood floor and is super affordable (which is rare) but they don't want us to use our hardshoes directly on the floor. They are worried about damage. We have very few dancers in hardshoes, but we still need to be able to practice it. The space is Used by multiple forms of dance so we would have to find something to put over the floor while we have class and then remove once our classes are completed. Any ideas and solutions or ideas are more than welcomed.

I had the same problem dancing in university. I ended up buying a pond liner and using painters tape to attach it to the floor. Have not had any problems with damaging the floor below. I would suggest getting the thickets one possible. Hope this helps

Do you have any problems with it slipping or bunching up in the middle

We bought a roll on linoleum, turned it over (to dance on the back, it's less slippery) and duct taped it to the floor. Rolled up after each class, and the studio let us store it in a closet between classes. Make sure it is rolled with the part you dance on facing outwards, and when you unroll it it will be easier to tape to the floor and won't flick up on the edges.

Good luck!

We bought part of a cosmetically flawed roll of Harlequin Cascade flooring for classes away from our studio (call Harlequin to see if they have any; it's much cheaper than list) and have augmented it with shower pan liner since the classes have grown.
