It is relatively rare to find wooden dance floors anymore that have been treated with wax and I wondered whether anyone had a view as to 'how much' was appropriate. A studio I use occasionally has wax being applied daily with a fine cheese grater, before the fine particles are trodden in to the floor and distributed by dancers feet. the result being that the suede soles quickly get clogged up with wax (to the point of there sometimes being a layer that you can actually scrape off), but, of course, you can never restore the nap of the suede to its former state. Surely, this is neither necessary nor desirable? The difficulty is that the floor quickly becomes slippery, and more wax is added to 'slow it down'. Can anyone suggest a way of 'restoring' their shoes, and of changing the floor's treatment, so that it is no longer the liability it has become?
