The TopLine Dance Frame is a revolutionary new training aid aimed at dancers wishing to achieve the perfect topline for ballroom.
The frame has been designed and manufactured, and is retailed through this online store, by DCubed Design Ltd.
DCubed Design Ltd is a West Midlands-based design company, specialising in the design, development, manufacture and retail of dance-related equipment.
TopLine Dance Frame was launched at the British National Dance Championships, Blackpool, in November 2010 – the culmination of two years of research, development and testing.
It was designed to assist dancers maintain stillness in their topline – preventing the arms dropping, shoulder from creeping forward and tension entering the neck and back…problems that invade the follower’s dance space and ruin the couple’s appearance.
Our original concept was developed and tested by dance professionals and competitors to meet rigorous practice requirements at different levels.
Academic research was also undertaken to ensure that it encouraged bio-mechanic response and over time develop muscle memory, allowing the body to remain in the correct position for longer.
Continued use will help the dancer’s evolution by encouraging improved body rotation and maintaining the core.
TopLine Dance Frames have now been sold to dancers and dance teachers in over 50 countries from America to Australia.
In 2012, we extended our products to include a range of accessories and complementary training aids under the Xtraz brand. In 2016 further product development saw the introduction of “The Second Generation” version of the frame and in 2018 “The Quantum Edition” was launched.
