About the project Edit

Sustainable Dance Floor is the interactive dance floor which generates electricity through the act of dancing. It was created by the designer and artist Dan Roosegaarde from the Studio Roosegaarde.

In what ways is this project unique and creative? Edit

"The energy released by the dancing crowd is captured by way of spiral springs below the dance floor (certain materials prodduce electricity when squeezed) and converted to electricity. This electricity can be used for music and lightning. "

"The modular system which provides 25 watts per module was installed in the Club Watt Rotterdam in 2008."

What is the social value of this project? Edit

This technological innovation is very sustainable because it produces its own energy, and enables people to have fun while contributing to it. Every movement is turned into new power.
The sustainable dance floor gets a sustainable message across by involving and energizing visitors and make them aware of kinetic energy as potential renewable energy.

What is the potential of this project to expand and develop? Edit

Sustainable dance floors can be installed in customized ways for various occasions.

What was the triggering factor of this project? Edit

Many of Dan Roosegaarde's designs are interactive, sustainable and respond to sound and movement.
