If you’re looking for a top-quality modular dance floor, you’ll find it at Greatmats. Our EZ Portable Dance Floor is suitable for professional dancers, event venues, and everything in between.

Portable, incredibly durable, and designed for repeated installations, this flooring is a versatile choice.

Benefits of the Modular Dance Floor

The EZ Portable Dance Floor is made in the USA from top-quality materials. It features a solid durable plastic base tray with a commercial grade vinyl inlay for supreme durability and scratch resistance. The vinyl won’t separate from the plastic tray, making this system a long-lasting investment.

This dance floor is non-absorbent, making it suitable for many different uses. It can be installed in a performance hall to give you access to a top-quality dance floor, or it can be temporarily installed outdoors for weddings or dances. This floor offers an upscale wood or stone design that’s ideal for special events.

The EZ Portable Dance Floor can be installed where traditional floors can’t. It can be used both inside and outside, and it can be installed over existing flooring, too.

Because water and air flows underneath these tiles, the floor can be installed in basements and garages without being damaged. This unique design helps to prevent mold and mildew buildup.

Interlocking tiles are designed with repeated installations in mind, allowing you to custom build the floor dimensions that you need at any time.

Installation is easy. Just lay the tiles down, click them together, and you’re done. There’s no glue or tape required for installation.

The rugged loop and tab construction ensures that your tiles will stay together tightly, even when in use. The tab connectors on the tiles won’t break off over time.

Border ramps are also available to make a smooth edge and a transition onto and off of the modular dance floor.

When removing the floor, you can uninstall the tiles in grids. Leaving the groups of tiles connected can make for a faster installation the next time, ideal when you frequently uninstall and reinstall the floor.

While the floor is easy to install and remove, it’s also equally easy to maintain. You can clean the floor with a damp mop, hot water, and a common household floor cleaner. The finish is highly durable.

When you’re ready to buy your dance floor, you can choose from a variety of finishes. These wood grain finishes offer a distinctive, luxurious look, so you can choose the shade that looks best in your space.

Uses for a Modular Dance Floor

You can use a modular dance floor in many different ways:

  • Buy a floor for your troupe and take it on tour with you to ensure you’ll always have a professional floor to perform on.
  • Expand your studio space by adding an extra dance floor during competitions.
  • Create a removable dance floor for your hotel during events like weddings and performances.
  • Bring a dance floor along with you when you DJ a party or wedding.

Investing in a modular dance floor can potentially lead to new business opportunities. A dance troupe can perform in nearly any venue, even when it lacks a professional dance floor. (Having a quality floor to perform on can also help ensure dancer safety, helping to protect future performances.)

A modular dance floor can also make a space more versatile. Installing the floor when needed and then removing it makes a space multipurpose, so a studio or performance venue can accommodate more artists and potentially bring in more money.

How much does a modular dance floor cost?

The cost of a modular dance floor will depend on the size of the floor that you desire. Our EZ Portable Dance Floor tiles measure 12x12 inches and cost around $6.60 per tile.

They’re designed for repeated installations and are highly durable, so you can get plenty of use out of your investment. If you decide to expand your floor later on, you can always buy more tiles to add on.

What type of dance can be done on modular dance floor tiles?

Our EZ Portable Dance Floor Tiles are highly durable, thanks to their commercial grade vinyl top surface. They can be paired with most dancing shoe types, including high heels.

What is the surface material of modular dance floors?

These tiles feature a commercial grade vinyl top surface. That highly durable surface means these tiles can support a high degree of traffic and use. They can be disassembled and reassembled for events, performances, and more.

What surfaces can you install modular dance floors on?

You can install a modular dance floor over most hard, flat surfaces. If you’re installing the floor over concrete, then it’s recommended to use an underlayment to add cushion and to help dampen sounds.

These tiles can be installed over carpeting, but installations over low pile carpeting are best. Plush carpeting can be too soft and can make the installation difficult. If this is the case, then laying plywood over the carpeting can create a firmer surface for the tile installation.
