Our Jet Setter Dance Board Now Comes With Its Own Backpack!

We are so excited that our most portable dance floor just got more portable!

The Jet Setter dance board, which weighs only 3 to 4 pounds and is 23 inches in diameter, is already super light and easy to carry around. But THIS MONTH our shipment of Jet Setter Backpacks will arrive!

(NOTE: Typically, you will receive your Dance Daze Dance Board within 3 weeks from your order date; however, if you order your Jet Setter + Backpack before May 30, 2022, there may be a delay of about a week. Meaning, you’re welcomed to PRE-ORDER anytime in May, but we are not expecting our shipment to arrive until the last week of May 2022.)

So you will get a portable dance floor and a backpack to carry your board and all of your belongings all in one!

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

All Sprung Dance Boards Coming January 2022!

At Dance Daze Dance Boards, we pride ourselves on being a company that celebrates color, diversity, and doing good for the world. One of the ways in which we try to embody our motto of #DanceWellDoGood is by using sustainable materials in our products that will both support your dancing and also improve or do no harm to the earth.

Since January of 2021, we have only used FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified wood for each dance board that we cut, paint, and ship to our customers. Headquartered in Bonn, Germany, The Forest Stewardship Council is an international non-profit organization that promotes responsible management of forests all over the world. In using FSC Certified wood, Dance Daze Dance Boards is supporting the protection of indigenous lands, ensuring that the wood we use is harvested from sustainably-managed forests, and only using harvesting lumber with trees will be replaced or allowed to regenerate naturally.

We are happy to announce that in January of 2022, Dance Daze Dance Boards will continue to create more sustainable products and products that support your dance training by making all of our boards with sprung floors!

A sprung floor is considered the best kind of platform for both dancing and athletic training, as sprung floors help to enhance performance and reduce injuries. Sprung floors are created with a foam or rubber bottom or backing, which absorbs shock and provides a bit of movement (or “give”) in the performance surface. While un-sprung floors can put more stress on the joints and muscles when dancing, sprung floors help to return energy to the feet, joints, and muscles, when dancing or jumping, helping to reduce fatigue and therefore to reduce the chances of injury.

In addition to the above, the foam bottom that we use for Dance Daze Dance Boards provides a slight bounce, reduces fatigue, and provides traction for using your dance board indoors our outdoors.

While our skid-resistant dance boards are great, we want to provide the highest quality products possible to support your dance training, and we believe that sprung floors do this!

Over time, we hope to replace the current foam that we are using with FSC Certified natural rubber, which will further support the protection of forest ecosystems, including the plants and animals that inhabit them, and ensure safe and fair working conditions for the people who harvest the rubber.
