The Flashdance Effect: The Perfect Welding Gloves for Flash Dancing

by Joe Geng on August 4, 2016

Comments (0)

Remember that obscure movie Flashdance from the 80s? Well here’s a synopsis: a welder by day and a fledgling dancer by night tries to balance her career and her dreams.



This masterpiece proved that the welder/dancer combo is a tight schedule to keep. If you don’t have a solid break between quitting time and curtain call, make it easier on yourself and check out some of our welding gloves that will make the transition a whole lot smoother.

You might not have your sights set on a fancy dance conservatory. But with the right PPE, you can do your best — whether you’re handling a TIG torch, or setting off sparks onstage.

Here are our top picks for welders who love reliable hand protection but also like to do a little moonlighting:


With Blue Cowhide, You Can Have it All!

Sometimes, it’s all about the costume. Wearing our Endura® Blue Welding Gloves, you won’t have to be a quick-change artist after your day job. You can go straight from the shop to the stage without skipping a beat.

These rugged, long-wearing cowhide welding gloves are built to last. Whether you’re hard at work during the day or throwing around some serious jazz hands at night, flame-resistant Kevlar® thread keeps everything together. As an added bonus, the gauntlet cuffs will keep your forearms protected too.

Have the Dexterity to Dance Right Through Your Life

Sometimes, it’s all about the moves. If yours are killer, you need serious gloves that will work hard all day and won’t impair your dancing dexterity after hours. Our Endura® Heavy-Duty Horsehide TIG Welding Glove brings four different types of leather together to create lightweight, soft PPE that provides unparalleled on-the-job hand protection.
These TIG welding gloves resist sparks and have the added durability and protection of Kevlar® stitching. You get ANSI level 2 heat protection and level 3 puncture resistance. And, with the easy-on, wide gauntlet cuff, you can easily toss them aside if they start to interfere with your choreography.

Don’t Let a Flash Take Hold of Your Safety

So you’re a disorderly dancer who’s into pyrotechnics onstage? Not to worry: our Clutch Gear® Hi-Viz Flame-Resistant Arc-Flash Anti-Impact Mechanics Gloves combine hi-visibility and arc-flash protection in an impact-resistant, showstopping blaze orange and black welding glove.

This is the newest addition to the Clutch Gear® family. Not only does this style look bold at work during the day and into the night, it will also protect your hands from impacts, and provides Arc Flash hazard category 2 protection and ANSI level 3 puncture resistance.

Welding safety is really serious business, and that’s why Superior Glove offers so many different styles and materials for different levels of protection. Think one of these styles is exactly what you’ve been missing? Why not request a free sample pair and take them for a spin around the dance floor?
