Dance Floor Frequently Asked Questions

Answers to your questions about Dance Floors

DanceDeck and DanceDeck Deluxe
DanceDeck Pro

 

DanceDeck and DanceDeck Deluxe:

1. What kinds of dancing can be performed on DanceDeck and DanceDeck Deluxe?
DanceDeck is designed to be used for all types of social dancing at weddings or any type of special event. DanceDeck can also be used for ballroom dancing, dance studios and as a portable practice floor for professional dancers.

2. What dance floor colors are available?
DanceDeck in vinyl is available in 4 colors – Dark Wood, Light Wood, Black and White. DanceDeck Deluxe in wood is available in 2 colors – Chestnut (warm reddish brown) and Desert (light pine). See colors.

3. How is DanceDeck constructed?
Standard DanceDeck dance floors are comprised of two parts: a durable black polypropylene tray and a wood-look, vinyl-laminate top that sits snugly inside the tray. The tray is waterproof and sturdy with ribbed channels underneath that provides rigidity and allow for drainage. DanceDeck Deluxe is made up of two parts as well but, instead of a vinyl laminate dance floor top, we use a parquet top made from real oak, with a color-matched plastic tray. See Specs.

4. How is DanceDeck Deluxe constructed?
DanceDeck Deluxe is made up of two parts as well (see above) but, instead of vinyl the parquet insert is made from real wood in two different colors. In addition, the polypropylene base tile is color-matched to blend in with the surface tile for a more elegant look. See Specs.

5. What are the key differences between the vinyl and wood dance floors?
While the DanceDeck (vinyl) and DanceDeck Deluxe (wood) are both made of the same base material, the top sections are different. In addition, the DanceDeck base tiles are available only in black or custom-ordered in white, while the DanceDeck Deluxe base tiles are colored to match the two different wood inserts. Choose the vinyl if you are looking for a low-cost, practical solution. The vinyl is less expensive than the wood version and is easier to clean and maintain. Choose the wood version if you are looking for an elegant, real wood system. See Colors/Finishes.

6. I need a price and I do not see prices listed online, why not?
We do not list prices because all of our price quotes include freight. You can get an immediate and complete price quote from us quickly by completing the Request A Quote form. You may also call one of our dance floor specialists for a price quote at 800-709-9055 or 972-684-5736 (M-F 8am-8pm Central).

7. I need a dance floor in a week; can I get it that quickly?
Yes, we can accommodate rush orders as we stock inventory. Please call us to discuss your needs! Toll-free: 800-709-9055 or 972-684-5736 (M-F 8am-8pm Central).

8. Do you rent dance floors?
No, unfortunately our portable dance floors are not currently available for rental.

9. Do you accept credit cards?
Yes, we accept all major credit cards: Visa, MasterCard, American Express and Discover. See How To Order a Dance Floor and Policies & Procedures.

10. I am buying this dance floor for my university; can I use a purchase order?
Yes, we accept Purchase Orders from qualified universities, colleges and municipalities in the U.S.

11. Can my company set up Net 30 terms with you?
Yes, please review Our Policies. You can download and print a Credit Application

12. How long does it take to install a 20ft x 20ft dance floor?
Typical install times for a dance floor this size is 45 minutes using 2 people. See Installation times chart.

13. I have trouble screwing in a light bulb, can I install DanceDeck myself?
Yes, anyone can do it. The male-female snap connection system makes installation a breeze. See How to install a dance floor.

14. Do I need instructions to install DanceDeck?
Not necessarily. But we do have dance floor installation instructions available.

15. What happens if someone spills a drink on the floor?
Minor spills and even light rain (if the floor is outside) will not damage DanceDeck or DanceDeck Deluxe. The underside channels are designed to allow for drainage to run underneath and flow out so that moisture doesn’t collect underneath the floor possibly causing damage to the tiles.

16. Can DanceDeck be used outside?
Yes. DanceDeck portable dance floors are ideal for tent events and can even be outside without a tent. (However, we do not recommend using DanceDeck in full sunlight in very hot conditions.) DanceDeck outdoor dance floors can be placed on cement, asphalt and also closely cropped lawns.

17. Does DanceDeck need to be placed on a perfectly flat surface?
DanceDeck's specially-designed connection system allows a certain degree of flexibility so the floor can be used over some uneven surfaces. However, common sense is advised and we recommend you request a dance floor sample so that you can judge for yourself whether our dance floor will work in your environment.

18. Can DK and DKX tiles be installed over carpet?
It really depends on what type of carpeting and the height and thickness of the pile. DanceDeck works best when used over carpeting with a dense, low pile. Industrial carpeting and carpeting typically found in hotel ballrooms works well with our dance floor tiles.

Use over other types of carpeting, such as residential carpeting or especially plush/shag carpets with longer threads and a loose pile is not recommended - the unstable underlayment can create a tripping hazard. Please discuss your needs with one of our sales reps at 800-709-9055 (M-F 8-8 Central) or 972-684-5736 (outside U.S.).

19. Can DK and DKX tiles be installed over grass?
Yes, but only on closely-cropped lawns, such as putting greens. Due to the uneven nature of most outdoor areas, we strongly recommend using a sub-floor, such as plywood or our portable event flooring, EventDeck or UltraDeck.

20. What do I do if one of the dance floor tiles gets damaged?
You can order replacement tiles for individual 1ft x 1ft tiles if they get damaged.

21. I am planning a wedding with 200 guests, what size dance floor will I need?
We estimate that with 200 guests, about 70 will be dancing at any given time. To accommodate 70 dancers, we recommend providing an 18ft x 18ft dance floor. See our dance floor size calculation chart.

22. How much storage space does DanceDeck require?
We recommend storing DanceDeck dance floors in 3ft x 3ft panel sections. A 20ft x 20ft DanceDeck vinyl dance floor will stack a little over 3 feet high (in 3ftx3ft sections). The same size DanceDeck Deluxe wood dance floor will stack at approximately 4.5 feet high. We highly recommend the use of dance floor transport cart which allows you to have rolling storage for the 3ft x 3ft panel sections. The DanceDeck Transport Cart greatly speeds installation and dismantle times.

23. I need a black and white checkerboard dance floor; does it come preassembled with the alternating color tiles?
No, you will receive the sections in 3ft x 3ft sections. The sections will be stacked alternately in black and white.

24. How do the DanceDeck tiles connect?
The tiles connect simply with a male-female snap connection system. See our dance floor installation instructions.

25. Does DanceDeck have edging?
Yes, DanceDeck has sloped edge pieces and corner pieces. The edge pieces provide a smooth transition to avoid tripping and also close off the open connection system. See product info.

26. How do I clean the dance floor?
DanceDeck and DanceDeck Deluxe are simple to clean. Use any standard no-wax vinyl tile cleaner on the vinyl DanceDeck. Use any standard urethane floor cleaner on the wood DanceDeck Deluxe. To eliminate scuff marks on both types of floor, use an SOS or Brillo pad and rub lightly. DanceDeck Professional Dance Floor Cleaner is safe to use on all DanceDeck products.

27. I already own DanceDeck and I need more tiles, is there a minimum order?
If you already own DanceDeck or DanceDeck Deluxe and need to replace tiles or want to expand the size of your floor, we do not require a minimum order. Please email us at to order replacement tiles. Or you may call us at 800-709-9055 or 972-684-5736 (M-F 8am-8pm Central).

28. Can I pick up the dance floor from your warehouse?
Depending on where you are located, it may be possible to pick up your order in person at one of our distribution or manufacturing facilities. Please contact us directly for more information or to pre-arrange for a pickup date and time. Local sales tax may apply. Call us at 800-709-9055 or 972-684-5736 (M-F 8am-8pm Central).

29. Am I obligated to pay sales tax on this dance floor?
Appropriate local sales tax may apply to your order, depending on your delivery address.

30. Can I arrange for my own trucking service?

31. The theme of my wedding is all white and I would like an all white dance floor to complete the look. I noticed that there is a black border around the white tile; is it possible for the border to be white?
Yes, we can create an all white tile for you. Normally, the base tray is black, but to create a truly all white floor we can dye the base tray white. There is a $300 custom color charge additional and please allow an additional 2-3 weeks for this special order.

32. I am interested in getting matching edge pieces for the DanceDeck Deluxe, is a matching color available?
Yes, we can provide you with edging that will match the DanceDeck Deluxe tiles. There is no additional charge, but the minimum size dance floor for this custom-color edging is 18ft x 18ft (324 sq ft). Please allow an additional 2-3 weeks for this special order. (Note: we do not provide custom color edging for the DanceDeck, only for the the DanceDeck Deluxe.)

DanceDeck Pro:

33. What kinds of dancing can be performed on DanceDeck Pro?
DanceDeck Pro by American Portable Dance Floors is ideal for all kinds of dancing.

Our floors do not use particle board or low-cost components that could compromise the look and feel of the portable dance floor. The construction allows for some "give" to simulate a "sprung" dance floor feel favored by professional dancers. DanceDeck Pro is also the only portable dance floor that offers matching wood edging.

36. Does DanceDeck Pro have edging?
Yes, DanceDeck Pro has matching real wood, sloped edge pieces and corner pieces. This is the only portable dance floor that offers matching wood edging.

For heel marks, scuffs and ink or other spots or stains, we recommend using denatured alcohol (sold at most hardware stores) DanceDeck Professional Dance Floor Cleaner is safe to use on all DanceDeck products.
