For tap and other hard shoe dance types we recommend our black marley floor. No matter what, tap shoes will scuff your dance floor surface and leave permanent black marks. Black marley is the best option because it hides these marks.
Marley is a sheet vinyl product that is very common in professional dance studios. Available in black, white, and gray, vinyl dance flooring can either be purchased for a discount in full roll lengths or in pre-cut lengths specific to your room. Cut lengths of vinyl dance flooring material are easier to install while full size rolls can weigh more than 270 lbs.
In professional studios, most customers install their marley dance floors themselves using a tape down method of installation. Simply apply Rosco single sided vinyl tape on top of the Rosco dance floor to cover the seams. Then, double sided tape is used around the perimeter to adhere the vinyl to the sub-floor.
For soft shoe dance types including ballet and modern, many of our customers choose a gray marley dance floor. They love its soft and flexible feel.
Soft shoe dance floors are offered in a reversible marley vinyl material in black/white and black/gray combinations. This reversible dance floor option is an excellent choice as a portable dance floor because it can be rolled up and transported.
Our marley vinyl dance floor should be cleaned with Rosco brand floor cleaner which is available in standard and heavy duty strength. Cleaning vinyl dance floors twice a week is recommended as it will help you keep your flooring in top condition for many years.
If you are looking for a highly portable dance floor for a touring group, we recommend the Adagio Tour. This dance floor weighs only 1.6 lbs per foot and is an excellent solution for temporary theatrical applications. It is designed to lay flat quickly and is durable enough for all dance forms.
Adagio Tour provides a matte, non-reflective surface and is very flexible, assuring years of carefree rolling and re-rolling. However, Adagio Tour floors are built for temporary usage as this particular product is not thick enough for the demands of a heavily used tap floor.
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. They can handle any dance type and provide a great hardwood appearance in addition to convenient assembly. Ideal for DJ's or other entertainment companies, they can be used over and over for years at weddings and similar events that require a tough dance floor.
You can 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. The durable loop and tab locking system hooks your floor together tightly but allows for quick disassembly when it is time to leave. This connection type is far more durable than most portable dance floors on the market today.
Shipping of our dance flooring is generally via freight delivery on pallets. Ground service is occasionally available for smaller projects or 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.
