These interlocking dance floor tiles ensure that you have a dance floor where and when you need one. Designed to withstand multiple assemblies, these tiles are durable, professional looking, and create an eye-catching dance floor perfect for banquet centers, performances, weddings, practice and more. Suitable for both indoor and temporary outdoor installations, this dance floor is ready to go wherever you do.

The Details About the Portable Dance Floor Tiles
These dance floor tiles are designed with the needs of a professional performer or business in mind. This floor holds up to the rigorous use expected of a heavy-duty dance floor, and it will look great during event after event. You can choose from many luxurious wood grain finishes, or opt for a slate finish for a more modern touch. With a secure, locking fit, these tiles create a stunning dance floor that doesn’t look temporary at all.


The portable dance floor is suitable for use with many different types of dance shoe types, including high heels.

When choosing the appropriate sized dance floor, we recommend 9 square feet of space per person. Each tile is 1 square foot, so you can order as many tiles as necessary to get the dance floor size that you desire. Expecting a larger crowd for a future event? You can simply order more tiles to create a larger dance floor.

We also offer transport carts that can be used to stack and store the tiles, which can be particularly helpful when you’re working with larger portable dance floors.

These dance floor tiles can be installed over any flat surface, including concrete and carpeting. If you are assembling a dance floor on top of concrete, we recommend that you use a 3mm rubber underlayment to provide some cushion and sound dampening.

The tiles feature a durable tab assembly so that these tiles will withstand countless assemblies. The dance floor will not start to separate and wear out as some other products will. These tiles are easy to assemble and easy to break down, so you don’t waste time on setup and can instead focus more time and energy on your performance.

And if you only use the tiles periodically, it’s no problem. The tiles measure 12 inches x 12 inches, so they’re easy to store in a closet, storage area, or basement until you need them again.

Why These Dance Floor Tiles Are the Right Choice for Your Next Event
Why choose these dance floor tiles? There are plenty of reasons why these tiles are better than the other products out there.

Additionally, these tiles are built to last, meaning that through performance after performance, they’ll hold together as tightly as they did the first time you assembled the dance floor.

Though the 12×12-inch tiles are easy to store just about anywhere, consider keeping them assembled in larger squares of 9 tiles so that you can quickly and easily assemble a dance floor. It will mean less prep work for you and more time for you to focus on the event itself.

Quality
These portable dance floor tiles are made in the USA. With a 5-year warranty against manufacturer defects, you know that you’re investing in a quality product that a manufacturer is proud to stand behind.

These dance floor tiles are waterproof for use in any weather. They are made from a commercial-grade vinyl top, and feature durable interlocking tabs. These tiles are made to hold up under repeated uses and are ready to withstand the traffic of commercial use.


Versatility
Not only are these tiles versatile in terms of their ability to go nearly anywhere with you, but you can also customize the dance floor size to your particular needs. If you’re expecting a larger event, order some extra tiles and create a large floor with plenty of dance space. For a smaller event, you can set up just some of the tiles, so you don’t have the awkward appearance of a partially full dance floor. The ability to customize the dance floor’s size can be a major money saver, as you won’t need separate floors for different types of events. And if you’re not sure just how many tiles to order, don’t worry – if your dance floor turns out to be too small, you can always add on more tiles later.

Fast Installation
Your time is precious, and these dance floor tiles are the perfect solution when you’re on the go. You can assemble a 10 x 20 foot portable dance floor in minutes when you use these tiles. It’s even faster to disassemble the floor.

When time is of the essence, you’ll be glad that you’ve opted for these portable dance floor tiles. There are no large, heavy pieces to lug around, and no extra tools required for assembly. Plus, with no special tools required for installation, you won’t have to worry about arriving at an event only to discover that you’ve left an important tool back at home.


Professional Appearance
When you’re traveling to a performance or are providing entertainment at a wedding, you want a dance floor that is eye-catching and professional looking. These dance tiles create a floor that will not disappoint. Choose from a variety of attractive finishes for the exact aesthetic that you want. Easy snap-on border ramps and corners create the perfect event floor package. Your dance floor will look clean and complete.

Picking the perfect dance floor

adagio-dancersChoosing the right dance floor to install can be a daunting task. With literally hundreds of different kinds of dance out there, how can you be sure you have the right floor covering to meet the demands of your studio, hall or home?

Without getting too in depth, two key areas to watch are slip resistance and shock absorption. Both factors should play a large role in determining how  easy and comfortable the performance surface is to dance on. Dancing on an improper surface such as concrete, even for short periods of time, can cause pain, injury or even irreversible damage to your bones, joints and entire body.

Slip resistance

Each form of dance requires different levels of slip resistance. Ballet dancers need a much higher degree of grip than do ballroom or bare feet dancers. While much of that can be regulated through the use of proper footwear, floor surfaces still play a critical role.

Marley, or vinyl, floors such as the Rosco Adagio line of rolled dance floor provide a solid non-slip surface for dances such as jazz, modern, ballet, Irish, Flamenco, lyrical, drill team or tap and are typically preferred when more general community all-purpose use takes place. It provides a medium-fast floor speed and is excellent for semi-permanent or permanent installation. Adagio’s marley floor rolls also accommodate touring, although its specialty touring line typically works better in those situations.

Jill of Marietta, Ohio said, “I wish I would have had this a long time ago,” after purchasing Adagio dance flooring from Greatmats.com for her dance studio which offers ballet, jazz, hip-hop, lyrical and tap classes. “I LOVE THIS FLOOR! and it looks really sharp.”

For more specialized applications, a smooth, unfinished hardwood floor provides less friction and is ideal for social or ballroom dancing. Meanwhile, its hard surface lends well to tap or Riverdance where sound is important. Hardwood is not appropriate in all environments, such as those exposed to moisture or outdoor conditions. In those cases, portable or laminate flooring is a good option, given an appropriate underlying structure.

Engineered wood is also common economical alternate to expensive hardwood dance flooring as it is less liable to warp or shrink.

No matter what material the floor is made of, proper care, storage and cleaning is critical to maintaining proper slip control on your dance surface and extending the life of your dance floor. Avoiding even minimal dirt and water can play a huge role in the life of your dance floor. Gym floor coverings are also an option to protect your floor.

Shock absorption

Most performance dance surfaces involve a sprung floor system underneath. The dance floors can be either laid on top of a sprung floors (also known as floating floors) or have one built in. Hardness of the surface greatly affects what type of protection a sprung floor can give to the dancer. Hard performance surfaces protect from serious injuries while soft surfaces defend against minor injuries. There is very little overlap.

Sprung floors can be supported by resilient materials, such as foam backing or rubber feet, or by mechanical cushioning – such as criss-crossing wooden slats.

An alternative to sprung floors is having the floor built over a wooden frame, which will provide some give and spring.

Keeping slip resistance and shock absorption factors in mind while choosing your dance flooring will surely help you find the proper dance floor for your needs.adagio-may2015-sale-email

Customer Review-Rosco Adagio Dance Flooring

Gary B. purchased some Rosco Adagio dance flooring from us for his professional dance studio.  Here’s what he had to say:

“We purchased rolls of marley flooring to put in our dance studio in our tap room.  The installation went very well.  We followed your customer rep’s suggestions.  The actual installation was completed in about five hours.”

Did you have any difficulty installing the product?

“The only difficulty was taping the marley underneath rather than on top.  We prefer to have the tape underneath as tape on the top tends to catch on tap shoes and get curled.”

We asked Gary if he is happy with the product.

“We are very happy with the product and will be purchasing more marley for an additional dance room that will be completed this fall.  This was purchased for a dance school business.  This room is used for tap, jazz, ballet, hip-hop, and lyrical dance.”

Would you recommend this dance floor to your friends?

“Yes, we would definitely recommend this to friends.  Your customer service we very helpful and complete.  The shipping was well coordinated and timely.”

Thank you, Gary.  We’re glad you had a pleasant experience with our company.  We look forward to working with you in the future.

LED Dance Flooring


Start a dance revolution in your club or event center with our remote controlled, Astera LED dance flooring.  This LED Dance Floor is remarkably easy to assemble for both permanent and temporary installations.
This lighted dance floor system consists of 2×2 ft modules that can be combined to build any size LED dance floor in a variety of shapes. Each lighted dance floor section is 8 inches high.  This flooring is rated to hold up to 800 lbs.
You can install this LED dance floor on any hard surface. This lighted system is surprisingly easy to install and setting it up is a relatively quick job. Under normal circumstances, a 20×20 ft area usually takes only about two hours to load in and set up with a small crew. There are no tools required to install this LED dance floor.  A series of metal clips are used to connect the 2×2 ft panels together.  Each 2×2 ft x 8 inch section only weighs 21 lbs which makes it easy for almost anyone to install.
Astera’s wireless pixel tube is a revolutionary LED dance floor tube.  It can operate wirelessly for more than 12 hours. With the remote control, the LED tube can be easily managed, separated into multiple pixels, or synchronized with other Astera lighting objects.  This allows you to create a custom, vibrant dance environment.  This lighting provides color static, color fading, strobing color, chasing colors, and targeted control of each Light.

Tap Dance Floor Arabesque

An excellent and economical, Tap Dance Floor Arabesque is a great option for your studio dance floor.  This product is a great surface for almost all dance types that utilize hard shoes including tap and ballroom styles.  For soft shoe dancers, the slip resistance is akin to a traditional hardwood floor.  This floor is also excellent for barefoot dance.  If your studio focuses primarily on ballet, you may enjoy this fast surface.  However, if you decide it is too fast, we would recommend another of our dance floors. We strongly recommend that you request a free sample for testing purposes.  We are happy to send out 4 to 5 ft lengths free of charge.
Tap Dance Floor Arabesque is available in three attractive marbled colors: Black, Gray and Tan. The marbled finish, besides adding a note of elegance, provides the practical advantage of helping to hide scuff marks.  Tap shoes with aluminum taps will leave black oxidation marks on vinyl flooring material.  This is more noticeable with gray flooring. For this reason, we do not recommend gray flooring when using this floor for tap dancing. Tap shoes with steel taps will not leave black marks.  However, all tap shoes will leave some non-color markings on the floor.
Although it is inexpensive, this remarkable floor does not compromise on quality. Because it’s a heavy duty homogenous vinyl, Tap Dance Floor Arabesque is ideal for permanent installations. It is, on a cost-per-square-foot basis, Rosco’s most affordable floor, so it’s a good choice for such semi-permanent locations as studios in rented quarters. Rosco sells the floor both in rolls and in cut footage to exactly meet your studio size.
This is a very good dance floor for Multi-Purpose applications in classrooms and commercial settings that may have tables and chairs.  It’s also a good choice for such semi-permanent locations as studios in rented quarters.

Rosco sells the floor both in rolls and in cut footage to exactly meet your studio size.
