Tap Dance Flooring

Tap Dance Flooring

Below are our flooring options for percussive dance types including tap dance, Irish Dancing, clog, flamenco, etc . These dance styles require a flooring that is not only hard wearing but also does not "kill" the sound. 

Traditionally, tap dance flooring has been a wood sprung floor but this has many downsides including cost and maintenance.  Our vinyl floor solutions (commonly known as Marley Floors) are ideally laid over our Smart Flex sprung dance floor to give the best of both worlds but they can also be laid directly onto most suitably prepared sub-floors including wood and concrete.  If the vinyl floor is not laid onto a sprung floor the impact to the dancer should be considered and mitigated by assessing length of practice time, etc. 

These performance vinyl options allow for a good clean sound to be made.  The floor needs to be “slick” but not overly slippery to allow a controlled slide. 

Tap dance studio floors are often used as a multi purpose room including other dance style like ballet and these options are perfectly suited to soft shoe dance as well. The products below are ideal for other uses including aerobic exercise including spin classes, gym workouts as well as floor work such as Pilates and yoga.
