It’s not something you might think about as you watch a performance, but over time, the wear-and-tear on the stage floor results in areas that need to be repaired. Loading heavy sets in and out, dancers and actors performing, and high-impact performances like Stomp and Step Afrika all take a toll on the wooden stage floor.

You can see that one of the largest sections is right at the front of the stage: And you can probably guess why – this is where the Tap Dogs tap, the Stompers stomp, the Steppers step. So much high-impact action takes place on this little stretch of the stage.
