The trend seems to be for venues to go with laminate flooring due to cost and low mainrtenance

The surface is not too bad - maybe a little slick

There is a padding called 'dance padding' that has pretty good reviews from dance studios that have used it.  It looks like it might be just under 1/2 inch thick.

I have no actual experience with this setup (but I have danced on laminate)

Hi all,

A)  If you were giving advice, about replacing a 45'x55' wooden floor, to the owners of the hall that you and another organization rent about 5x/mo for traditional dancing, but that is also used for things like Bingo and private events, what advice would you give? 
(Wood type, installation methods, ballpark cost, finish suggestions, care/maintenance etc)

B)  If you were giving advice to the two dance groups about how to work with the owners to be sure your interests in a danceable floor are factored into the plans, what advice would you give?

PS  I know we might get helpful info from MontpelierVT's Capital City Grangers (& friends of) and GreenfieldMA's Guiding Star Grangers (& friends of).  Any other groups who've relatively recently replaced a floor?
