Founded in 1925 by the great Gret Palucca, in 1999 the Palucca Schule became Germany’s first independent higher school of dance.
The historic building was renovated in 2007 and flanked by two new buildings in the Bauhaus style with the emphasis on light and space. The fully glazed facades are adorned with coloured frames that lend a resolutely contemporary air to the whole. Above the walkway linking the original building to the modern spaces there hangs a work in homage to the famous Palucca.

Why did you opt for Harlequin?
Jason Beechey, Director, Palucca Schule
"I chose the Harlequin Liberty sprung floor because it meets our needs perfectly. It also helps prevent injury. All the pupils and teachers are pleased with it."
The selected products
The Palucca Schule dance studios are equipped with the Harlequin Liberty sprung floor and the Harlequin Studio dance floor.
The Palucca Schule was seeking a multipurpose floor combined with a comfortable and resistant surface that would be equally suitable for classical and contemporary dance.
With its smooth surface and foam backing, the Harlequin Studio dance floor provides extra comfort for dancers during floor or pointe practice.
The Harlequin Studio dance floor covering was stuck with glue and hot welded to avoid the use of adhesive tape, providing a practical and aesthetic solution.
