Harlequin Floors named Technical Partner Royal Opera House

16 May 2019

The Royal Opera House’s Paul Hamlyn Hall is transformed into a ballet studio for the day for its Ballet Studio Live events.  Audiences enjoy the rare privilege of observing dancers of The Royal Ballet rehearsing in class.

As the official Technical Partner for these special events, Harlequin Floors created the specially built ballet studio stage in the Paul Hamlyn Hall with a Harlequin Liberty and Cascade sprung and performance vinyl dance floor.

Kevin O’Hare, Director, The Royal Ballet said:

“We were delighted to work with Harlequin Floors for our Ballet Studio Live events. The Harlequin Liberty and Cascade sprung and vinyl dance floor helped us to transform the iconic Paul Hamlyn Hall at the Royal Opera House into a ballet studio for the day, providing a behind-the-scenes glimpse into the training and rehearsal process that goes into creating world-class performances.”
