Pool | Covers

Full or Partial

Each pool cover we create is unique for our client’s needs an design intent. A candle-lit dinner for an awards ceremony is completely different than a DJ-themed party with a dance floor for 200. Some pools look better with a partial cover and others look better completely covered. We’ll work with you to create a design that’s safe, looks great, and installs easily.  We can even do runways for fashion shows and weddings.

Flat or Elevated

Depending on what type of cover you need, the entire cover may be resting on the pool deck (about 3.5″ high) or elevated on bridging beams (about 17″ high). Bridging beams provide more support and weight-carrying capacity, are easier to put in, and don’t touch the bottom of the pool. If you’ve got a pool liner using beams will ensure that the bottom of the pool isn’t scratched.

Our custom understructures can also be used to provide a deck-level support across the pool. No matter which you choose, you’ll be able to see what it will look like with our provided CAD layouts and renderings of your pool deck.

Black or Clear

We offer two different options for different budgets and needs. Our normal black stage decks provide a safe, completely opaque surface. For times where you just want to provide a cover or dance floor, and aren’t trying to create a “lit from below” look, this is a great option. Most of our clients choose our clear decks, which we manufacture in-house out of industry-standard StageRight stage decks. Either option come in 4′ x 8′ panels that transport easily and fit into place.

WOW | Waltz on Water

Pool Dance Floors.

Pool Platforms.

Pool Stages.

In 1985, Performance staging did our first gig.

Since then we’ve spent the last 30 years honing our craft.

we launched Waltz On water to better serve our customers who wanted pool covers in their backyards.

NEW BRAND, same company, but a completely different idea.

THE WALTZ ON WATER DIFFERENCE

OTHER COMPANIES COVER POOLS. WE BUILD STAGES ON POOLS SUITABLE FOR DANCE PARTIES, DINNER PARTIES, WEDDINGS AND SPECIAL EVENTS. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE? WE USE INDUSTRY-STANDARD, LOAD-BEARING STAGE DECKS AS OUR SURFACE. OTHER COMPANIES PUT DOWN TRUSS AND LAY ACRYLIC PANELS ON IT, UNATTACHED. THE MAIN DIFFERENCE IS THE SAFETY OF THE PEOPLE ON IT. WE LIKE OUR WAY BETTER, AND OUR CLIENTS DO AS WELL.

 

OUR MISSION:

Providing safe and proven temporary pool covers for special events.

OUR Vision:

Every pool is a stage, from the smallest back yards to the largest resort pools. We want to cover them all.

FAQ’s

Note: Most of these are actual questions we’ve received from our customers.

Some may be fiction.

Proceed with caution.

What's a Dance Floor Pool Cover?

It’s a Performance Stage installed over your pool. Suitable for dancing. Or Games. Or Secrets. And everything else you’ll only do once in your life.

Check out the video below of actual events and actual installations. These are not paid actors.

Can you cover my pool tomorrow?

While we are very good at what we do, the entire design process from start to finish takes from 3-5 days once we’ve done a site survey. If your event is in less than 60 days out, our ability to schedule labor, trucking, and resources may be limited. In addition, several cities (especially anywhere in Broward or Dade County) require a 30-day advance notice to build covers for commercial pools. When in doubt, give us a call at 734-420-1000.

Do your pool covers support breakdancing?

We have it on good authority that the panel material we use is excellent for breakdancing. Watch out for mermaids.

What's the average square footage a person needs while dancing?

Three. The Magic Number is Three. Multiply your guests x 3 to get the square footage you’d need for a dance floor for everyone.

Can you cover an above ground pool?

While technically feasible, we wouldn’t recommend that.

Can you create flush-mounted covers?

We can do anything for a price. If you have seen this done, it’s always 100% custom. We fill every gap so not even a princess’s $1500 heels can slip through, and it works better if the pool is rectangular. But yeah, we can do that.

Do you do lighting like I see in the photos?

Yes, we offer a wide array of backyard transformation services including full video projection mapping, LED lighting in your trees and foliage, and underwater lighting to supplement your pool’s floods.

What's different about Waltz on Water Pool Covers?
Our product is based on an industry-standard StageRight stage deck. As such, it’s not just a decor item, but a structural component capable of supporting the weight of the stage deck surface, as well as people dancing.
How Does it Work?
We support the decks on underwater structures, or beams that span the pool depending on your pool size and intended design.
Do you have larger versions for commercial pools?
Absolutely. Due to some tight controls over photography rights, we can’t always show photos of events at commercial locations. We’re happy to work with hotels, resorts, and theme parks to develop temporary pool platforms for your events.
Who is Performance Staging?
Performance Staging is a 30-year leader in the event industry. Waltz on Water is our lifestyle Pool Cover brand for end-users.
Do you offer design assistance?
We’re making strides every day in our CAD rendering capability. This allows us to show you photo-realistic versions of what your cover will look like installed, eliminating the guesswork, and communicating our ideas visually.
What's the entire process like?
Here’s the way it works, from our perspective:

  1. You submit your pool measurements and photos
  2. We perform an onsite survey, if necessary
  3. Our designers come up with options for your event based on number of guests, budget, and pool size
  4. We prepare quotes to match the drawings
  5. You approve the quote you want
  6. You pay a 50% deposit to reserve the rental
  7. We finalize an install date & time about a week before the rental
  8. You make a final payment the week of your event
  9. We come out and install the cover, test it for safety, and answer any final questions
  10. After your party, we come out and remove it
Do you offer dance lessons?

Not yet, but we’re thinking about starting up soon. In the meantime, check out this guy, who owns it.

Is it true you have to wait an hour after eating to swim?

There has never been a reported case of drowning due to post-meal cramps in the history of the United States.

What's the largest pool in the World?

This pool in Chile.
