ST. PAUL, Minn. (KMSP) - The St. Paul Ballet is seeking the public's help after the company's traveling dance floor was stolen outside its studios over the weekend of June 24.
Both the trailer and the floor are used for more than 25 free outreach performances. They are valued at $11,000.
The trailer hitch had been locked and the trailer was chained to a post outside of the building, both of which were cut when staff discovered the trailer missing on Sunday morning.
The trailer was customized to carry carts of modular sprung floor and dance vinyl to protect the health and safety of the dancers by providing a resilient sprung dance surface over concrete and tile.
According to the company's Facebook post, in its three years at Hamline-Midway, St. Paul Ballet has never experienced any theft or vandalism.
If anyone has information regarding the stolen 6’x12’ white, United brand trailer and carts of flooring with blue foam, hardboard and black plastic tiles, please contact the St. Paul Police at 651-291-1111.
If you have any questions, please call the St. Paul Ballet office at 651-690-1588.
