Why Do We Love Our Sprung Floors?

You may know that when we started Dance Daze Dance Boards back in 2020, not all of our portable dance floors were sprung. In fact, for over a year, only 2 of our 5 dance boards were sold as sprung floors.

While we thought that not offering our boards as sprung floors would make the boards even more portable (because they would simply contain less material), we now know that the benefits of sprung floors are so great that we couldn’t pass up an opportunity to make all of our dance boards as great as possible for our customers.

Continue reading to learn more about the benefits of dancing on sprung floors.

First, sprung dance floors are one of the best ways to prevent injuries in the joints and muscles for dancers. Sprung floors help to prevent injuries because, instead of absorbing energy, these floors return energy to the body, helping to improve performance.

Second, sprung dance floors reduce fatigue. It is likely that you will feel less tired after dancing on a sprung floor than you would after dancing on a completely hard surface that is not sprung.

Third, sprung floors can provide a perfect balance between hard and soft – they are not so soft that a dancer will need to overwork themselves, but they are not so hard that they will add to one’s discomfort in their feet, legs, joints, or tendons. Sprung floors absorb shock, making it safer to dance on sprung floors than on regular floors.

The foam padding that we use at the bottom of Dance Daze Dance Boards has many benefits! For example:

  • Can be used indoors or outdoors
  • Easily cleaned
  • The textured pattern provides traction
  • It is slip resistant
  • It is water resistant
  • It is designed to reduce fatigue

5 Reasons Why You Might Need A Dance Daze Dance Board

As business owners, we love creating high quality products that solve problems for our clients.

At Dance Daze Dance Boards, we work to support the work of recreational and pre-professional dancers. This means that we design our portable dance floors in consideration of what recreational children and adult dancers and pre-professional dancers between the ages of 9 and 18 might need when in terms of practicing, supplemental training, creating influencer content, traveling for different dance opportunities/experiences, and more.

If you are a recreational or pre-professional dancer, keep reading to learn about why you might need a Dance Daze Dance Board in your life.

You participate in virtual dance classes via Zoom, Instagram, TikTok, and more

While some of our clients were already participating in virtual dance classes before 2020, a lot of our DDDB family began dancing at home after the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. Many fantastic programs launched in 2020 that were completely virtual, including those that were only temporarily virtual and those that began as online programs and will remain as online programs so that they can serve a wider audience all over the world.

Personally, I’ve lived in a variety of spaces including college dorm rooms (both in the United States and abroad!), simple apartments and luxury apartments, and homes in both rural and urban areas. So I know that the space we have in our living areas can vary! Some years, we may be able to grand jeté across a huge backyard and in other seasons of life, we may be fearful of scraping our elbows if we attempt a pirouette turn in our living room.

With differences in living spaces in mind, Dance Daze Dance Boards come in a variety of sizes, that we hope will be helpful and meet the needs of dancers practicing at home, whether they have a small space or a large space in which to practice dance.

For those with limited space — perhaps in a small bedroom or in a section of a shared college dorm room — we have our Jet Setter dance board. At just 23 inches in diameter, this board can be used to practice non-locomotor movements, simple jumps, and long and short tap dance combinations as well.

Additionally, our Jet Setter can be easily stored in the trunk or backseat of a car, under a bed, or in a closet. Beginning this year (2022), our Jet Setter dance board comes with an adorable carrying tote so that this board can be easily taken on trips. And, there is even enough room in the bag to add some extra dance clothes, tights, leotards, and a makeup bag too, if you’re heading to a dance convention or dance competition!

You travel for dance competitions and dance conventions

If you’re someone who travels for dancing — whether you attend dance conventions in order to learn from the best dance teachers and to about the latest dance products, if you’re a dance educator who attends arts education seminars in different cities or in different states, or if you’re an adult ballet dancer who goes to summer intensives designed just for adults in different cities across the U.S. and abroad — we believe a Dance Daze Dance Board will fit your life style!

You regularly create dance content, both inside your home and outdoors

Another trend that became huge in 2020 was creating content on platforms such as Instagram Reels and TikTok!

Whether you’re someone who creates aspirational or educational dance content, likes trying out the latest TikTok dance moves, or enjoys goofing off making content with your friends and family, you can probably use a Dance Daze Dance Board in your videos!

I personally love using my Dance Daze Dance Board when I’m creating educational ballet and tap content, when I’m showing off some original choreography, or when I’m taking a popular trend and “making it ballet” or adding a tap dance twist to it.

I also love having 2-3 boards with me when I’m outside so that I can use one board to hold my iPhone tripod, one board to step on/sit and put on my dance shoes, and one board for posing for photos! Dance Daze Dance Boards are great for dance photography as well. And, your dance photos you take with your Dance Daze Dance Boards are perfect for seasonal or end-of-year time-lapse videos!

You like practicing new combinations outside of the studio

When I was training as a pre-professional dancer (and even now, any time I pop in for an adult class of any kind!), I loved going home and practicing what I’d learned in class.

Now, as a child who was also a competitive tap dancer (before I began my pre-professional classical ballet training), this could be slightly problematic when I thought the best place to tap dance in the house was on the kitchen floor.

With a Dance Daze Dance Board, I’m able to practice a variety of styles of dance in my home without ruining any floors! This is another way our dance boards serve both children and adults who are dancing at home.

You enjoy creating your own choreography at home

One of the main ways I maintained my sanity during 2020 was creating, creating, creating. I spent most of my shower time making up tap dance combinations or thinking about what songs I wanted to use for my weekly “Monday Funday” Instagram Live Ballet Barre class that I taught on Monday evenings for most of that year.

Additionally, I spent about 3 hours per week recording content for an online dance program for children.

As a dance educator, creating choreography and warmup combinations for children and adults, a Dance Daze Dance Board can be perfect. Using a Dance Daze Dance Board can remind us of the small space in which our students may be dancing at home. Additionally, it can remind us of the myriad ways in which we can use our bodies to make BIG movements and shapes, even when we are confined to a small space.
