The creation of The World’s First Amplified Dance Floor a unique Irish hand crafted Dance instrument is giving music and dance lovers of any age and ability the opportunity to share in one of Ireland’s richest musical traditions.
Young Galway entrepreneur and Mitchell Music founder Mr Lorcan Mitchell said he was inspired to create the Mitchell Dance Platform in response to the growing needs of professional and amateur dancers alike. Along with his passion for the trans formative power of music and his burning desire to make an impact on the local economy.
The Mitchell Dance Platform is the first amplified portable dance floor of its kind in the world, designed and manufactured in Ireland and is easy for small children to use as it is attractive to professional dancers.
Practice in Comfort
The Mitchell Dance Platform is a portable sprung floor that gives dancers of any age or dance ability a safe surface to practice or perform on.
The platform’s natural bounce helps to eliminate impact related injuries usually linked to dancing on hard unyielding floors.
The clarity of sound from The Mitchell Platform enables dancers to focus and drill down on specific steps which helps in the development of technical perfection and the facilitation of genuine progress.
The acoustics and audibility of the Dance Platform provide dancers with the essential means, not only to express their steps, but to be heard clearly and sharply by audiences be it on streets or concert halls.
The world’s first amplified portable dance platform
The built in pickup microphone is a unique and impressive feature that provides dancers with the opportunity to connect with Speakers, amplifiers or Pa systems regardless of scenario or situation.
This new option of volume control offers unrivalled freedom to go live and go loud without facing issues related to channel feedback or interference.
The pickup microphone allows multiple dancers to perform simultaneously while retaining their individual sound and also complementing and contrasting with the rest of the ensemble.
Made from the highest quality Birch material which is recognised as the optimal wood for making percussion musical instruments. This material is used specifically to help project the sound rather the absorb it. Which makes the Mitchell Dance Platform not only hard wearing but vibrant and dynamic.
The Mitchell Dance platform will help improve conditions for dancers and put them in control of what they dance on and where and is ideal for all dance types whether Irish Dance,Sean Nós, Tap, Flamenco or Ballet.
