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.

Dance and Stage Pro – Durable Marley Dance Floor, All Dance Types


If you’re in the market for a durable marley dance floor, Dance and Stage Pro has the durability and longevity you’re looking for.  Great for professional dance studios, it’s also a perfect stage flooring for theatrical performances. This durable, vinyl flooring material is the thickest dance floor we offer and we provide it at a surprisingly reasonable price. 

Choose this marley dance flooring for all dance types including tap, Irish, flamenco, modern, jazz, lyrical, ballet, ballroom, or even drill team.  It can be used with either hard or soft dance shoes.  If you’d like to use marley dance flooring for theatre or filming applications, it can easily withstand the weight of sets and camera dollies even if they are used on a regular basis.  If your dance or theatre troop likes to travel, you can bring your marley dance flooring with you.  Use a tape-down installation for temporary usage. For studios or other permanent applications, use a glue-down, heat weld for a seamless, no-tape floor. 

Dance and Stage Pro is available in four neutral colors so it will coordinate with any colorful stage set or dance costumes.  Choose from black, white, light gray, or dark gray.  The floor measures six feet wide by 60 feet long and weighs 280 lbs per roll.  If you would like a free sample of our marley dance floor, please feel free to call one of our professional and caring customer service representatives and we will be happy to assist you.

Please note that tap shoes with aluminum taps will leave black oxidation marks on all vinyl flooring material.  You will find this is more noticeable with gray flooring.  It is 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 but all tap shoes will leave some clear markings on the floor.  For cleaning purposes, we recommend Rosco floor cleaner which we also have available.  Just let us know!

Please keep in mind that this material should always be stored in an upright standing position when rolled up on a core and not in use.
