Why Use Portable Dance Floor?

If you're looking to practice more outside the studio, a portable dance floor is a great option. It allows you to practice anywhere, including on carpet and on the road. Need to brush up before the competition? Slide the bed over in the hotel room, throw down your portable dance floor and go to town.

High qualtiy portable dance floors are designed to mimic what you would use in a studio, making practice time more valuable. Practice turns and spins with ease and enjoy consistency in your dance surface no matter where you go.

Portable Dance Floor Styles

There are a dozens of different portable dance floor styles but two of them stand out from the rest. The one you choose will depend on your desired use.

  • Portable Dancing Discs
    Portable dancing discs are arguably the most portable dance floors. They typically range in size from 16 inches to 48 inches. So while you won't have room to do leaps, depending on the size you select, you will have room for most stationary moves and turns. Portable dancing discs vary in quality. A high quality dancing disc will tapered edges and a Marley style surface (high quality vinyl). Additionally, you should expect the bottom to have a backing that helps it stay in place and keeps the floor beneath it damage-free.
  • Portable Modular Dance Floors
    Modular dance floors come in squares that interlock and are held together by tapered border pieces. They are typically made from high density plastic with a durable vinyl coating. While they aren't as easy to transport as a portable dancing disc, they do generally offer more surface area. Another major upside to modular dance floors is the cost. In terms of cost per square foot, modular dance floors are hands down more cost effective than portable dancing discs.
