I love my tap board. It’s larger and more affordable than competitive products. The sound of my feets on the board is great. It’s lightweight and easy to carry.
Exactly what I was looking for!
I absolutely love my tap floor. I started taking tap lessons with my girlfriend at the end of 2022 and wanted to be able to practice at home. I have a room that's basically my sewing room (empty nester - I took over my 32 year old daughters room - LOL) but the tap floor fits perfectly where I can watch lessons on the mounted TV and tap away.
It's really helped me advance in my beginning tap lessons and it's great exercise rather than doing boring bicycle or treadmill stuff.
Thanks Terrence for the floor and for your videos. AWESOME!!!!!
Great surface and flexibility which fits my current needs completely!
Took tap as a kid and now at 81 I’m starting again to check my bucket list and fulfill a dream. It’s hard, but I’m persevering and gaining confidence. Signed up at Dance School for Adult Tap Classes. Love that I can put it on carpet. Investigated many other tap boards but decided this was the one for me.. Also with the cushioning it’s better for my joints while tapping.
The cushion underneath is a joint savor for someone like me in my mid 50’s!! Made all the difference!
On time, easy to order, and does the job!
Love the tap floor and all of the fun videos!
Quality! Brilliant sound, excellent craftsmanship, and one of the best portable tap floors on the market! It is high quality value at a great price! I enjoy tap dancing and the ease this brings to your step is just amazing! I can not say enough wonderful things about this so if you're searching for an affordable, quality, well made tap floor, this is it!
We purchased 10 boards for use in my first grade classroom. Although my students are beginners, I have been tap dancing 42 years and recognize a board with good quality sound. I hope to purchase more in the future. Terrence was easy to work with despite having to deal with a purchase order, and answered my emails in a timely manner.
It is everything you said it would be: easy to pick up and move; sounds good to the ear (maybe just slightly sharper than I had anticipated). What's not to love?
We love the portable tap floor here at Birdland Jazz Club in Times Square! A favorite of all of our guest Broadway performers.
Love the quality and the sound! Plus customer service was excellent!!
I feel the difference dancing on this verses hard floors, the foam really makes it safer for joints. The picture shows a 3 and 7 year old dancing on it so you can get a visual of the size. Love it!
Excellent. I did my research and found comparably sized floors could be twice as expensive but other tap websites recommended the Portable Tap Floor. It's sturdy, gives a great sound, and seems to be scuff proof.
I am new to tap - starting lessons as a 72 year old. The tap floor is sturdy, made of wood for a good 'tap' sound, and is cushioned to protect both my floor and to provide some softening of impact when dancing. It arrived promptly and well packaged. I use it for daily practice, and can shove it under the bed when I'm not using it.
Fantastic! Better than I expected. It arrived in a flash and I’ve been dancing on it since I tore the box open. It’s exactly like he says: sturdy, solid, durable, well made. It’s perfect. Now…to learn tap!
Incredible! I was shocked at how amazing the sound was! Beautiful piece of art to tap on! I highly, highly recommend!
I love my new tap board. It’s a little larger than I imagined, but that’s okay it gives me more room to dance. It’s a great solution to practice at home and easily fits under the bed when not in use. It’s perfect for my needs. Thank you, Terrence.
My daughter needed a way to practice at home and the portable tap floor was recommended by a friend. She immediately loved it! It’s clearly going to make practicing routines at home so much easier and more productive!
Love my new tap board! Easy on the joints and wonderful sound. I can pick it up easily to move it and I look forward to my practices. The lessons are great, too. I have learned so much already! Thanks Tapman!
Ordered for my 10 yr old daughter and she's loving it! I like how it discreetly slides under the couch and light enough for her to manage on her own.
My new tap board arrived quickly and was exactly as expected. It is portable, easy to move about. The cushioning on the bottom makes for a "soft landing." I ordered the finished board and, after a bit of tapping, it is not slick and makes a great tap sound. I am one satisfied customer. Thanks!
Instant favorite!! So nice, wonderful tap sounds!!
I had been wanting to get back into tap after not having taken a class in nearly 7 years. This tap floor is great because I can easily move it around, it sounds great, and it’s a good size for home, learning from online tutorials.
This was a gift for my granddaughter and she is loving it!
This floor is a Christmas gift for my Granddaughter. I will advise how she likes it once she uses it.
My husband and I are satisfied with the overall look and construction of the floor. It is a good size, somewhat heavy but moveable, has a good quality birch wood floor that is smooth and flat. The vinyl seems resilient enough but I was a little concerned that the standard staples that are holding the vinyl in place may work themselves loose over time but my husband (a good carpenter) seems to think they are adequate to hold it in place. The backside was covered with the vinyl and included some type of filler which was a soft surface and will help protect flooring when in use. I initially thought it was a bit pricey at $199 but the more I thought about it, I believe it is a fair price. My husband could replicate the floor but the time and cost of purchasing the materials and spending the time constructing it made it clear to us that the fact that you offer free shipping and do so much to promote tap dancing, you deserve whatever profit you generate. Can't wait til Christmas. Thanks for your vision and creativity.
My wife just started taking a tap class, some fifty-five years after her first tap class. She loves the board. Now she can practice throughout the day, whenever she feels moved to do so, which, after this board, she does daily. So far, she is elated with this board. It is perfect.
Fantastic sturdy floor. Great for use anywhere and super shock absorbing.
I got the finished version, so a little slick so I can slide well. I love the size and strength and durability it provides.
I bought the finished Birch floor because I am scuffing up our hardwood floor with this quite addicting form of dance. I'm 56 yrs. old, and only just started tapping a few years ago. Not only is this floor pretty, but most importantly, the sound is just lovely and is music to the ears.
I am really happy with it and so very happy I invested in it.
This portable tap floor is just what I needed. It's large enough to practice at home but small enough to store under the bed or behind the sofa. It protects my floors from the damage that tapping on them would cause and has cushioning on the bottom to protect my shins. And the sound is great too!
Love this floor! I had the OSB board for a year and then decided to buy this Birch board with the finish. The sound is wonderful and very loud. The finish makes the board slippery to start, but I actually really like how nice it is for slides. I love the way the board is cushioned—it really helps my knees!! I tried a different place’s tap board on my tile kitchen floor, and I could tell the difference. I much prefer the portabletapfloor for tapping on that surface! The size of the board is also fantastic, not too small. My OSB board used to shed, but I don’t see that from this birch board, making clean up super easy! I highly recommend this floor. Thanks Terrence!
Love this floor! Love the purple border!
I love this tap board. This is the second time I've ordered one. I gave the first one away
I bought my son this tap board 4 years ago. He uses it every day. He brought it to college, and used it outside during COVID with his tap dance club. Unfortunately, he left it outside in the rain (don’t do this!), and after another summer of tapping, it was starting to turn to wood pulp. So he bought himself a new board. It’s sturdy, and not too heavy, and it has a great sound. Just don’t leave it out in the rain.
I like the top floor, but because I have the one that does not have shine on it, the rubber on the ball of my shoe catches and makes it difficult to dance on. Otherwise, it’s perfect. It’s possible that it takes longer than I thought to break it in.
I am concerned about how long the staples showing on the top of the board will last. The way the staples are holding the vinyl down looks a bit cheap. I have only tapped on the board a couple of times, but am concerned the staples will eventually pull out. I do like how light weight the board is.
Love my new tap floor! I drag it around the house with me like a baby with a blanket so I can practice here and there. I’m so happy that I can tap while saving both my knees and my floors.
Bonus: Flip it over and use it for situps.
Double bonus: Mr T appears to be a pretty fantastic human being in addition to an inspiring tap dancer. He is friendly, helpful, and professional. In teacup terms, every time you tap him he rings true.
There was a sign on it (it may be slippery at first) which it was. I put masking tape on the toe tap of my shoes which helps. otherwise, I think it will be fine for practicing dance steps.
Woo hoo. Need to get another one!!!!
Thank you for creating such a fantastic tap board, especially for those of us who are new to tap. I searched and reviewed others tap boards and this particular board caught my eye. Easy travel, doesn't take up a lot of space, easy use on carpet and best of all you won't ruin your hardwood floors.
I previously posted a review about the board itself, which I am totally in love with. But what I neglected to talk about in that review was the AMAZING customer service I've experienced with both the purchase of my board and Terrance's online tap program. During these crazy times I've done more and more online purchasing, and, this, by far, is the BEST customer service I have experienced. Whether it was helping me track the shipment of my board, or answering an email about the tap program within almost minutes of me sending it, this is the kind of personal customer service I have received. Hands down, better than any other! I am so glad to have joined this program and will be a lifetime member!
I love my new floor! Before purchasing the floor I was using just a piece of plywood, so I couldn't wait to get this floor. I will admit, it took a day or two to get used to - but now I am on it every day!!!! I love the way it sounds (definitely a different sound than the plywood), and it conveniently fits under my couch ;-). And I am so appreciative of the help I received in making the decision to get the unfinished floor. I see a new pair of shoes in my future very soon!!!!!
The Portable Tap Floor has made it possible to rediscover my love of tap! Being able to take virtual classes from home with this board has been such a bright spot throughout COVID. And -- you won't find better customer service anywhere! The Terrence Taps team is really just amazing. So responsive, and they go the extra mile not only to get you a great product but to provide resources to help you get started with your new board. Highly recommend!
Just tapped on it twice ( for about 3 hours each time) Really like the volume and saw a review on line from a very good tapper who gave it very high marks in his review.
We just need some information on "caring" for the board. Basically how best to clean it.
Love it!! The sound is amazing... Thank you!!!
The birch sounds so good!! Somehow, the sound doesn't bother my dogs like regular flooring. I love this board and I keep it in my vehicle, just in case I get a chance to tap. ❤ I also really appreciate the lessons!
This is great fun. I am a beginner and could not practice outside of class. Now I can practice at home. Once I get better I will take it to a park overlooking the ocean and practice nights.
I have been enjoying my zoom tap classes using this board. The sound quality is so fabulous that my teacher actually had me send her a link so she could buy one! It’s large and doesn’t fold in half but it can fit under a couch or bed. I just stand it up against a wall. Love this so much! Wish I had bought one years ago!
I absolutely love my new tap board!! Since teaching dance and drama virtually in my home studio due to the pandemic I’ve adapted my teaching skills and made this purchase. I’m a young (so I’d like to think), senior and have taught over 40 years.
In fact, one of my newest students purchased this exact board just recently and are waiting to receive it so they can hear the awesome sounds their own feet with taps and this board makes!
The only thing I would like is just to be a bit wider so traveling steps are easier to execute instead of always turning around and going back.
Would I purchase it again? YES!
Thank you so much for the great product and awesome service, I’ll continue letting my students know where to shop if they are in need of a tap board.
Happy Tapping, Bonnie
Item as expected. Thank you!
I love my tap board! When I was ready to order, the owner was very helpful in getting my order quickly processed. My board arrived quickly as well. I like that I can easily pull my board out to practice, and store it away just as easily. The sound is great, and I appreciate the quality of the construction and that it allows some give to protect my joints so I can tap for many years to come. I also appreciate the great tutorials! I highly recommend this company!
I bought this tap board to avoid tapping on the slippery tile floor. So far I absolutely love it. It sounds great and it’s lightweight so it’s easy to put away when not in use (which is everyday!). I got it for myself but my daughter loves it too - both the board side and the padded side. I’m also enjoying the online tap lessons.
This is by my favorite purchase in awhile. I highly recommend it for anyone wanting to tap at home.
Love this floor! It's so portable and easy to use and I love the sounds, whether I have on my tap shoes or just tennies. This is just what I needed to get back to practicing. The warmups and tips are really great. This floor will help me get back in tap shape. I'm looking forward to getting back to dancing with my tap ladies!! Thanks for this great design.
I love my new tap floor! It is solid, yet not too heavy to carry. It arrived quickly and I'm so happy to have it. Thank you!
I am very happy with my new tap floor. It works quite well for my beginning tap lessons. The sound is great and the surface is perfect for me -- I got the unfinished birch. My only improvement would be if it came in a bit wider size. I find the 2'-6" to be just a bit narrow. I think even 3 more inches for a width of 2'-9" would make a great product just that much better.
Most amazing portable tap board! A brilliant invention by a phenomenal teacher. BEST PURCHASE OF 2021
It's a great tap dance board. It's also been used as a head rest for our golden retriever. Fits nicely right in front of the tv where I can dance to videos. Use it everyday.
Great sound, easy to move around & store, great size for virtual class. Worth the investment.
I didn’t realize that the a “no finish” option meant it wouldn’t be treated at all and would scratch instantly. I assumed the finish option listed in the customization was an additional layer. I wish that had been more clear or warned in the description before I purchased it.
It does the job, but I sure wish I had bought the birch one.
As a somewhat older and retired tap dancer/teacher, I had hung up my shoes - literally. Coming across this 'floor' has been the incentive to take my shoes off the wall and put them back in action. (I even practice in whatever type shoe I have on at the time, too. :) It's been good for my soul to have my sole music again! I highly recommend it to anyone at ANY AGE. Thanks so much..!
Great experience! First off, Terrence helped us select the right tap floor by answering all our questions. Super easy order process and quick delivery. Looks and sounds great, and my kids love it!! Thank you!!!
I am so glad I kept searching for a tap floor and found The Portable Dance Floor. I almost settled on other floor options that are out there. The reviews from experienced dancers was very accurate, excellent floor!! I love to tap on it and I have recommended it to other dancers!
I confess - I am learning Appalachian flatfoot and clogging, not tap. But I was still ruining our wood floors, so this is a Godsend. I LOVE the tap floor! It gives me enough room to practice in my basement (I put it on top of a carpet), it has great sound even without wearing tap shoes. Also, I am able to move it easily, and it is just plain beautiful. Thank you SO much.
New tap student, and this was just what I needed! Great quality, great sound. It is very easy to pick up and slide away when I'm not using it. Getting access to the videos has also been a great jumping off point.
The wood shreds pretty easily, which is rather messy and makes me wonder how long the surface will remain smooth.
It works great. I am not slipping on my slippery floors and I can safely do everything the class does on line. Thank you!
I LOVE this tap floor. I am 62, and started tapping as my new COVID hobby, it is SO much fun. The best part is the membership and learning to Tap with Terrance. He is A-MAZ-ING. OMG like one of the greats, the technique, the style, the passion - he's smooth, and what an excellent teacher. Thank you Terrance Taps!!!!
Perfect for what I needed! I use it on one side to tap, and the other as a mat when I do floor workouts. Fits perfectly under the couch when not in use. Excellent value!
The sound quality is great, and easier to take on-the-go than expected.
I'm a beginner at tap dancing. The tap floor is fine but it seems to be too small. I wish it were a bit larger, maybe 4x6.
I love my new tap floor, but more importantly I love the lessons that come with it! It's been easily a decade since I've taken a class and Terrence reminded me of some basic technique that had gone long forgotten in those 10 years. They also reminded me how much I LOVE dancing! And now I have an opportunity to do it from the comfort of my own home! I highly recommend buying this floor!
This is a GORGEOUS tap floor made by an expert! My son absolutely loves the sound his taps make on the wood and enjoys using the tumbling mat on the other side. I feel very proud to be able to offer my son this top-of-the-line kit to outfit his digital learning journey during Covid.
I have been practicing during the pandemic on a dyi dancefloor. More than once I nearly slipped and crashed. It was also anything but portable, and I was stuck in the basement storage room. Now I am upstairs in my bedroom! It easily slides under my bed when I'm not dancing. The sound is lovely, and my family comments on how they like hearing me and can tell I'm improving. As winter rolls in again in the Midwest, and the pandemic continues, the portable tap floor will be my saving grace.
Love, love, love my new tap board. Perfect size for me to practice. Easy to move. Protects hardwood floor. Nice birch wood, great sound.
Hi Terrance!! I am so enjoying my new tap floor! After many years of wanting to learn to dance (I'm 63) I decided to go for it. My daughter bought me a cutting board at a major retail outlet, so I started using it as my dance floor. Then my husband went online and found your site, designed the floor himself and had it sent to me. He purchased the birch with the shiny finish and gray backing. I am using the free lessons that come with the floor, along with YouTube video's of other styles of dancing: Irish, flat foot, and buck dancing to name a few. I now have fun outlet to not only learn to dance but also a great work out (I get really sweaty in just a few minutes.) Last week I did a lesson at my preschool about learning tap and they loved it and clapped when I was done. Thanks for a fun, educational, and body strengthening product!
I did not anticipate that the staples that adhere the pad cover to the board would be visible, which was a bit of a disappointment. I also expected that the wood would be finished rather than rough and splintered. I plan to finish it myself and to find a way to hide the visible staples, since I gave this as a gift and was let down by the presentation. I'm hopeful that my sister will be pleased with the results after I fix the floor, but wish she were able to use it right away instead of having to wait.
One of the best purchases I've ever made! The board itself is beautiful, and it's provided me with such a fun way to practice tap from the comfort of my home. Thanks for a wonderful product!
My daughter LOVES the her new board! This is her favorite board she has had by far.
The sound is absolutely wonderful as well. Thank you for making a quality product.
Granddaughter loved her Christmas gift, The Portable Tap floor.
The board isn't huge, but it's amazing what you can do on it. The resonance is perfect. And it slides conveniently under my couch!
Sounds so nice!!!! I love it so much.
Beautiful wood, quality and sound...so happy with this purchase❤
I am unable to write a review at this time. It is a Christmas gift for my daughter. I know she will love it as my niece has it and she loves it. My daughter saw hers and wanted it. Looking forward to her opening it Christmas morning.
I'm SO happy with my portable tap board! It makes a perfect sound, and it's just the right size to take to and from the private lessons I teach. My mom even said if this had been a possibility when I was younger she definitely would have bought it for me to practice with outside of class. Thank you for making this a possibility, I wouldn't hesitate you recommend to anyone!
Ordering was easy and it came so FAST. I like my new floor. Great for practice.
Love the floor! It’s sturdy and has great sound.
Sounds amazing, you can hear every tap! Absorbs the hops and my legs feel better. Love it!!
Wonderful, easy ordering and shipping experience. Exactly as promised, showed up on time, durable but light enough to be portable. And it really does fit under the couch.
The tap floor is excellent. It enables me to practice tapping at home in any room and on any surface. Until we can get back to our group tapping sessions, I can keep my shuffles as crisp as possible. We are a group of septuagenarians and it's important to keep in shape.
Love my birch tap floor! High quality, excellent sound, plenty of room to tap. It arrived quickly and in perfect shape. I recommend this product.
It’s perfec! It sits solidly on the floor and does not slip. It is light and very portable. The sound is crisp. Dance has been a life long passion of mine but tap is new for me. As an older dancer I appreciate the thick foam that absorbs shock and protects my joints.
I was impressed with the prompt and courteous response I received from Terrance when I contacted him with a question. Shipping was prompt and communication excellent.
Thank you Terrance for such a great product and service!
I loved tapping on it; however I'm a senior citizen tapper and hadn't tapped for a few months. I kicked it up a notch and blew out my knee. I will heal and be back on my tap floor as soon as my sprain heals. Outside of that I love it.... Love the sound.
This is our third purchase for our busy household of tappers! Great!
It is perfect... I got the birch one and love the sound. Size is great because it is so easy to move around and store. I am really glad I opted for one solid board, and not some of the dance flooring I saw on line that comes in pieces. Overall, I am VERY happy with my purchase!
Loving this floor! It was a gift for my mom’s birthday and we are both getting back into tapping now. Excellent sound quality, not too heavy and great shock absorption. Loving the lessons too. Thank you!!
My daughter loves it. She does tap classes at least 2 times per week and she is intermediate to advanced, she has it for 3 weeks and it holds and sounds great. Great purchase. I can send videos as well so you can hear the sound.
I really love this tap board! It is very portable but still sturdy and easy to tap on. Sound great too!
