Marilyn Baker School of Dance offers classes in Ballet, Tap, Modern, Jazz and Acro Gymnastics. With over 50 years of experience, the school has had a great deal of success over the years with many students continuing on to a career in performance and also teaching.

In need of a dance floor that could withstand the demands of regular tap use, but also accommodate the various other styles performed at the school, Marilyn Baker, the owner of the dance studio, decided to talk to the technical flooring team at Le Mark for advice.

“Marilyn called and clearly explained her requirements. I could soon see that Nocturne was just what they were looking for” said Sharon Marshall, Performance Flooring Manager at Le Mark.

“There are so many different types of dance styles out there, having a dance floor like Nocturne™ that can accommodate a wide range of styles all in one floor was ideal for them”.

Marilyn soon got back in touch with Le Mark and after speaking to Sharon and decided on Nocturne™ Reversible flooring. After the dance studio had the floor fitted, Marilyn, was kind enough to get back in touch with Le Mark to let us know how they were getting on:

“We love our new floor covering; we have lots of Tap classes here and Nocturne is great for the sound. Thank you Le Mark for such good service!” Marilyn Baker, Owner.
