For tap and other hard shoe dance types we recommend that you opt for a black marley. Regardless of how careful you are, tap shoes will scuff your dance floor surface and leave black marks that may not be removable. Black marley is the best option for this style of dance because it hides these marks the best.
Dance floors for ballet are offered in a reversible marley vinyl material in black/white and black/gray combinations. This reversible dance floor option is an excellent choice for touring groups and as a portable dance floor. Marley flooring can be rolled up and transported. Install with vinyl dance floor tape.

If you are looking for a highly portable dance floor for your touring group, we recommend the Adagio Tour. This dance floor is for sale as a durable and lightweight product specifically designed for any dance type and shoe. Adagio Tour is also an excellent solution for temporary theatrical applications. It is designed to lay flat quickly and is an excellent tap floor. This surface is also excellent for all other dance forms including ballet, modern, Irish and jazz.
Adagio Tour weighs only 1.6 lbs. per linear foot and provides a matte, non-reflective surface that is ideal in all performance venues. Adagio Tour is very flexible, assuring years of carefree rolling and re-rolling. Please note that Adagio Touring floors are built for temporary usage. This particular product is not thick enough for the demands of a tap floor on a daily basis in a dance studio.
''Marley'' is a sheet vinyl product. This is the product most commonly found in professional dance studios and touring groups. Vinyl dance flooring can either be purchased in full roll lengths at a discount cost or in pre-cut lengths specific to your room size. Cut lengths of vinyl dance flooring material are easier to handle and install as full size rolls can weigh as much as 270 lbs. or more. Depending on stock quantities, marley is available in black, gray, and white. Tap studios will usually opt for black as this is the best color for reducing oxidation marks left by tap shoes on the marley floor.
In professional dance studios, most customers will install their marley dance floors themselves using a tape down method of installation using no glue or heat welding of seams. Simply apply Rosco single sided vinyl tape on top of the Rosco dance floor to cover the seams. In a tape down installation, double sided tape is also used around the perimeter to adhere the vinyl to the subfloor.
If you have a special event coming up and would like a great looking and easy-to-install portable dance floor, we recommend our snap together dance floor tiles. This high quality portable floor product provides a great hardwood appearance in a convenient snap together tile. Choose from several different wood grain looks or two stone appearances. These dance tiles are made of a commercial grade plastic with a 3 mm vinyl top. It can handle all types of dance types and is extremely rugged.
This portable floor is designed for repeated installations and heavy traffic usage. Ideal for DJ's or other entertainment companies, it can be used over and over for years and weddings and similar events that require a tough dance floor. The durable loop and tab locking system hooks your floor together tightly when connected but allows for quick and easy disassembly when the party is over. This connection type is far more durable than most portable dance flooring products on the market today.
For soft shoe dance types including ballet and modern, many of our customers will choose a gray marley dance flooring material. Soft shoe and bare foot dance types can utilize a softer and more supple vinyl dance flooring material that can also be used as a portable event dance floor when needed.
Shipping of our dance flooring is generally via freight delivery on pallets. Ground service is occasionally available for smaller projects or for home deliveries. Portable dance floor tiles are packaged in easy-to-handle 1x2 ft sized cardboard cartons with 26 floor tiles per carton. Larger projects will ship via freight delivery on pallets.
Our marley vinyl dance floor should be cleaned with Rosco brand floor cleaner which is available in standard and heavy duty strength. In most professional dance studios, cleaning vinyl dance floors twice a week is recommended. A regular cleaning maintenance schedule will help you to keep your flooring in top condition for many years of use.
