PortableTapFloor.com provides quality portable tap floors that are affordable, lightweight, durable, and resonant.
Once again, here is a product that was born from necessity. Terrence “Taps”, the man behind online tap dance resources, TapDanceMan.com, eTapDance.com, and TapDanceSongs.com, needed a lightweight, shock absorbing tap floor that he could use when performing in schools, libraries, and other venues where a good wooden stage is not available. It was important to Terrence that he have good flooring, not only because it improved his performances, but because it reduced his risk of injury.
Armed with ideas for his design, he worked with a designer to produce his portable tap floor. Realizing later that others might also need a functional solution for performance or practice that costs less than $300, he decided to make his Portable Tap Floor available to other tap dancers.
“Whether it’s for personal use, or is given as a gift,” Terrence says, “the “Perfect” Portable Tap Floor encourages tap practice and is great fun to use!”
Watch and listen to the Portable Tap Floor in action, and hear Terrence tell more of his story in this video:
PortableTapFloor.com kindly sponsored this giveaway, however in the interest of disclosure I want to let you know that I am an affiliate for PortableTapFloor.com (meaning that I earn a commission on sales from this item). I believe in Terrence’s dedication to the art form of tap and like to support other teachers who dedicate their skills and ingenuity to create useful resources for other teachers and dancers. Though other transportable tap floors are on the market, I haven’t seen any others like this one, plus it is an affordable option for tap students who want to create a space for home practice.
