131 Foot Marley Dance Flooring Roll
If looking for a ballet floor option that also will work well for other kinds of dancer classes, while also looking good enough for dancer performances, ours has the high quality and versatility that’s desired. This ballet mat is a marley dance floor installation designed for soft shoe use in professional studios. It's lightweight with plenty of portability. Use the ballet floor in a house for practice areas too.
Home Dance Studio Floor Versatility
The ballet floor works well for a variety of types of dance that involve soft footwear or bare feet, including modern, hip hop, and jazz.
The ballet dance floor material is great for use in studios, at the house, or on the stage. Even use this ballet floor on the road for tours, in theaters, or for professional troupes.
The semi-matte non-skid finish provides the controlled slip that dancers require.
Just remember it's designed for use barefoot or with appropriate shoes only. This ballet dance floor does not have any UV treating, so if using it outdoors, say for an outdoor performance, don't leave it exposed to the sun and the weather for extended periods of time.
Ballet Marley Floor Sizes
The standard size is 131.3’ of length and 5.25’ of width. It is extremely thin, measuring less than 2 mm (or 0.079 inches) in thickness. It provides 689.3 square feet of coverage.
It is lightweight, weighing just 1.9 pounds per linear foot. However, it is heavy, weighing 250 pounds per roll. So hefty equipment or a lot of people will be needed to move the rolls once they arrive.
We do sell this in cut length sizes for reduced coverage requirements. However, we do not sell the rolls in different widths, either cut to narrower widths or manufactured in wider widths.
The smaller lengths of rolls will weigh quite a bit less, making it easier to move around upon delivery.
Customers like the flexibility it offers. It can easily be rolled and unrolled as needed or even taken on the road for shows. This makes it ideal for touring companies and theaters that seek a portable dance floor.
When installing it, we recommend that it only be used atop hardwood, cement, or something similar. Before installation, make sure the subflooring is completely flat with no indentations or sharp objects sticking up, such as a loose nail, which could puncture it. If installing it in areas where cracks or holes exist, fill in these imperfections first. Imperfections in the subfloor may be visible through the thin ballet floor. Clean it well too.
Before rolling out the Rosco reversible ballet dance floor, we recommend allowing it to acclimate for at least 24 hours to the temperature of the room where it will be used. This is especially important if ordering it in the winter, where exposure to below freezing temperatures during transit is a possibility. If cutting it to fit a spot, precise measurements are important. Use a straight edge and a utility knife or a matte knife to ensure a clean, straight edging.
When laying it out, place it in position and use vinyls tapes to secure it to the subfloor. Other tapes possibly will leave a sticky residue that could cause problems in the longer term.
If using multiple pieces side by side to cover the entire length of a stage, leave a gap of about 1/16th of an inch between each piece, just in case it expands during use in warmer temperatures. Tape each seam to cover gaps. After all of the pieces are connected, put tape around the entire perimeter to keep it from sliding.
Permanent Ballet Flooring
A permanent install is smart where there’s no need to remove it. If planning to use the area for purposes where folks will be walking on it with hard shoes, we do not recommend permanency, as it is not designed for a hard soled shoe.
Cut and test fit the sheets to the area before beginning the gluing process. Only use adhesives recommended with this product. Spread the adhesive and then roll the ballet floor onto the adhesive, starting from one end and moving to the opposite end. Dropping the sheet over the adhesive could trap air underneath, causing rippling.
Additionally, use a three section linoleum roller to ensure a tight fit to the adhesives on the subfloor.
To receive the best results, keep it as clean as possible. Fortunately, maintaining it is easy. Here are some basic tips for keeping it looking sharp for as long as possible and for lengthening its lifespan. (For additional ideas, follow the cleaning and maintenance instructions that ship with it.)
Sweep and Mop:
The general cleaning should occur at least three times per week. Sweep it with a soft push broom. Applying Rosco All-Purpose Cleaner is recommended. A cleaner with ammonia might create a slippery surface.
Prevent Dirt Buildup:
Keeping as much dirt and debris away will allow it to perform better. It’s recommended using a rough rug or a sticky dirt catcher that visitors can step on prior to walking on it to catch dust and debris.
Keep Liquids Away:
Do not allow people to have water or other drinks around it, as spills equal potential staining. It's possible that the dancers will sweat on it, but it won't make stains, as long as it’s cleaned up quickly.
Don't use a rough brush or scour pad on it, as scratches might lead to tears over time. Rough scrubbing will cause it to lose its finish as well.
If rolling up and reinstalling it regularly, do not store it horizontally flat. Its weight might result in it collapsing on itself when stored in a horizontal position, which may cause a rippling in the material later. Store it rolled onto its original core rod in a vertical position. With smaller pieces, consider hanging them on a rod in the storage area.
Maintain and store it properly, and it will last a long time for many, many uses. It is dense, carrying an extremely high density rating of Shore A 87. It has a 3-year limited manufacturer's warranty. For any questions, contact our customer service team. We even have free shipping on certain items.
FAQ Ballet Floor Q&A
What is the top ballet dance floor?
Think about the planned use case. Some want a lightweight setup that’s perfect for transporting it between locations. Others may want a ballet practice mat that works well for use at the house. For daily use in a busy studio, look for Adagio touring marley ballet floor that is thicker for longer lasting results. Our Rosco dance floor has a versatile design for multiple usage cases.
What are ballet floors made of?
A reversible marley ballet floor mat is a common selection, consisting of a heavy duty vinyl floor. It has a strong mix of portability and durability.
What is the best vinyl dance flooring option?
Look for something that can handle multiple dancers. Portable ballet dance floor tiles simplify the process of taking them to different locations for performances. A portable ballet floor for home can be smaller, which simplifies moving it into and out of storage. Some people place sprung tiles underneath to create the best ballet sprung floors. A tap dance floor kit is another potential selection.
How do you put down marley flooring?
For the easiest layout, tape it down for temporary installs and semi permanently designs. This is especially a good option in studios to pull it up and lay it atop rubber stage flooring, reinstalling it there. It is also great for a theatrical performance.
Can carpet work as flooring for ballet at home?
It’s not ideal, but the canvas shoes should work adequately on almost any floorings, including a carpet. With carpeting, the shoe will not slide as easily as it will on a ballet roll, so take care not to catch the foot on the carpets.
