Sort of on topic - wooden floor

We are converting a church into a theatre and the wooden floor is causing some problems.
It seems to have been waxed and polished for the last seventy years or so with the result that it is very slippery indeed.
Has anyone any ideas on how I can preserve the look but lose the slip?

probably the easiest thing to try first would be some non-skid wax. You may have to remove the existing was with a stripper.

Charles responds:

There also used to be a dance floor wax that could just be sprinkled on the floor. Haven't seen it in many years, but...it was supposed to give a "controlled slip."
