Can these floors be used on carpet?
Yes, definitely! These portable tap floors can be used on everything from carpet to concrete.
What kind of wood is used for the surface?
At this time all floors feature the Russian Birch surface (finished or without finish). We do not currently have the OSB floor in stock due to recent lumber shortages.
What is the benefit of adding the finish?
The finish extends the life of the floor by absorbing some of the inevitable wear and tear. It is also good for dancers who like their floor to be a bit more slippery. If you want a non-slip floor, don't add the finish.

Can these connect to create a larger dance floor?
This portable tap floor is not designed to replace an in-home dance studio. Instead, it is intended to act as a small tap practice floor that students can use in the garage, in their room, in the living room while watching television, or anywhere else.
I don't live on the ground floor, can I still use the portable tap floor?
Unfortunately, nothing can keep you from disturbing downstairs neighbors with your tap dancing! But this tap dance floor is lightweight and easy to transport, allowing you to carry it down to your community's fitness center with ease. The vinyl bottom will reassure maintenance staff that the tap dance floor will not damage the flooring in the common areas. We also recommend that you talk to your neighbors about times that your dancing will not disturb them.
"Hey Terrence! Two of my dance group members bought your portable floors, and we used them in a performance at a local coffee house tonight. They were a great addition to the small stage, and they allowed us to spread out. (Lightweight, and easy to... dance on.) I came home and ordered one for myself! Thanks!"
"Hi I have tried several different types of tap boards, both commercial and handmade, and this one is far and above the rest. Most tap boards are too heavy, too easily scratched, too hard on your knees, or don't provide any subtlety in the sounds. This board is different, and a big improvement over what I've experienced before."
"I got my portable tap floor Friday and really like it! I really like the bounce and feel. I really thought it was going to be heavier, but I really like how it is light enough to carry from place to place without breaking my back. Also, it stays in place on the carpet, no matter how much I tap and slide around on top of it! I used to tape boards together from Home Depot to create a dance floor and they kept moving and breaking apart, plus it was too slippery! Wow! You really invented something great and should be proud of it. Every tap dancer should have one of these dance floors no matter what level! This really feels good to dance on, considering the fact I am shin splint prone and get terrible pains if I dance on the wrong floors!"
"Just wanted to say thank you I haven't seem my wife so happy and excited about tapping in years."
"I got my Tap board last Monday and I love it!!!! It is really helping me with my rehearsals and preparing for my number."
"Tap floor arrived right on schedule and I love it! Sound is excellent. I can slide it right under the sofa, out of sight (which hasn't happened yet!)."
