Tile Size

When shopping for a portable dance floor, it is important to know the size of the tiles. This will directly impact the amount of time it will take you and your team to breakdown and setup the dance floor. Smaller tiles = longer setup and breakdown times! 


What is the dance floor made from? The material used will directly impact the weight and how it reacts with moisture. A portable dance floor is best when it is lightweight and waterproof.

What is the finish of the dance floor tiles? How does it hold up to marks and scuffs? Of course your guests will be dancing on the floor so it is best to shop for a dance floor that is resistant to marks and scuffs. 

Do You Need A Sub-Floor? 

A sub-floor is used when a portable dance floor is installed on grass or an uneven surface. The majority of portable dance floors on the market will need a sub-floor for proper installation. This should not be something that deters you from purchasing a portable dance floor. Using a sub-floor is what can keep your purchase price down as a commercial dance floor with a pre-installed sub-floor can cost you $10,000+ which is a much larger investment compared to the price of portable dance floors. Get in touch with us for information regarding what materials you should use for your sub-floor.
