Top 10 QuestionsBelow are the most popular questions we've received around dance flooring. Click the question to find to get a detailed answer and explanation on these topics.
- Can I Place Dance Flooring Over Concrete? The best option is to add a subfloor over the concrete and then to place the thin dance floor over the subfloor. A sprung subfloor, a foam subfloor, a rubber subfloor, or a plastic subfloor are all options to go over the concrete.
- How Do I Make the Best Breakdance Floor? Breakdancing can be a fun workout, while also delivering a popular dance style. A dance floor that’s useful for breakdancing should be slip resistant, offer durability, contain cushioning, and include UV resistance (if you will use it outdoors).
- How Much Is a Marley Dance Floor? The majority of marley dance floors will have a cost of $2 to $3 per square foot of coverage, although some cost quite a bit more. These floors have other potential costs to watch for, too, including shipping, installation, and subflooring materials and installation.
- How Much Do Vinyl Dance Floor Rolls and Tiles Cost? The cost for your dance floor will depend on the style of material you select. Marley vinyl floors often cost $2 to $3 per square foot, but some cost more. Portable dance floor tiles often cost $4 to $7 per square foot, but wood tiles cost closer to $30 per square foot.
- What Is a Marley Dance Floor Made of? Marley dance floor rolls will consist of either vinyl or PVC plastic, both of which are durable materials, even in thin configurations. Commonly, marley floors will measure between 1.5 mm and 3 mm in thickness. Both PVC and vinyl can accept tape or glue to secure the roll.
- Do I Want Portable or Permanent Dance Studio Flooring? Portable dance floor options work well for carrying the floor to performance locations, and they usually consist of tiles or lightweight marley rolls. Permanent options look great in a dance studio setting, where practices and performance will occur regularly.
- What Are the Top Tap Dance Floors? Because of the special shoes in use for tap dancing, the tap floor needs to include a few important traits, including the true sound it makes when struck with a tap. These floors should also be durable, portable, easy to assemble, and easy to store.
- How Do You Clean Dance Studio Flooring? Different cleaning methods should occur with dance floors on a regular basis. Mopping and sweeping the floor should happen a few times per week. Giving the floors a deep cleaning with a machine can occur a few times per year to keep the material in top condition.
- How Do You Install Marley Dance Floors Over Hardwood? When placing a roll of marley over a hardwood floor, fix any imperfections in the floor, such as protruding nails. Then place the rolls of marley across the floor, securing the rolls with tape across the top at the seams and tape or glue underneath.
- How Do You Store Marley Dance Floors and Vinyl Rolls? If you will be storing your roll of marley between usages or performances, clean it before storing it. After cleaning, roll up the sections of the floor around a tube. Make sure to store the rolls in an upright position. When stored horizontally, the weight of the floor could cause warping by collapsing on itself.
- How Do You Cut Marley Dance Flooring? Because rolls of marley flooring are so thin, cutting them to fit a certain location is easier than with other flooring options. Use a sharp utility knife, and have fresh blades on hand. Use a straight edge as a guide to create a clean cut.
