I think people usually mean well.  They're just  clueless.

its not just floors, there was a cycling veldrome that they resurface and put a coating over the bitumen and it was rubberised and you could not do race on it any more :-/ would have cost too much money to redo it so no more cycling :-/ oops accident they say I think not!
mixup - I was referring to my story above, and you were referring to yours Cheesy 
Now there's a crummy floor story...

At one studio I used to attend, the manager rented out the place for a party once.  when she came back, the party organizer had mopped the floor with Murphy's oil soap, thereby stripping the brand-new, perfect for ballroom finish.

I thought that studio owner was going to have an apoplectic fit.  Needless to say, she never rented to non-dancers again.

Long story short, ballroom dance floors can be very temperamental.

The problem with Multi purpose venue. a few of the council halls that have just been renovated have suffered the same fate. Most just dont understand the requirements for a good dancefloor. Oiling would be great.

Exactly.  The floor has to be good for ballroom.

I've seen excellent ballroom floors get destroyed in a few months because of dry air...

It's amazing how temperamental a floor can be.

In the old days they spread wax on the floor from a cheese grater - it made it great to dance on, but you could not use the shoes anywhere else!
