Description

Dance boards

This portable raised 24 x 16 in dance boards are normally used for clogging, flat-footing, or buck dancing. Many different designs were tested over many years and this design was the overall winner. 100s of these have been sold over the years. You can pay three times as much for a board and not find half of these features that include:

Exterior: This board comes with high grade four or five layer plywood that is designed for exterior use. If it gets rained on, it generally hold ups pretty good. Much better than the Interior grades. The sound quality is as good, or maybe even better than the Interior grade, and its lighter weight. Most of the dance boards we sell are of this type and we ship this by default. Only down fall it does not look as good as Interior and may have patches to make the board completely smooth, but most shipped are patch free.

Raised Height – you want a dance board raised off the ground a little bit for several reasons. One reason is to give the board a little more of the deeper base sound that makes you sound good. Another reason is to keep the board dry if you dance outside on in a grassy area like many people do when they go to fiddle conventions or festivals. You don’t want the back side of your board getting muddy or wet as it will warp and make the board sound dull.

Handle – Fully integrated handle does not protrude in a way which will dent or scuff your other items you might be carrying in your car.

Modular – This board is designed to work with others just like it. This means each one of your friends can buy a board like this and when you come together you can put them all together to make a much larger dance surface.

Upgradeable / Repairable – This board is constructed with high grade rust free epoxy coated screws. Many boards are glued together which has some advantages but can be a disaster if the board gets wet or needs to be repaired. This system allows the board to have any part replaced or repaired without damaging the other parts. Another big advantage of this system is if you wear the board out you can flip it over and use the other side. This system also makes it much cheaper to upgrade to the Interconnect option. (see below)

Soft Step Center – Some boards are built very ridged. This board has a soft center that gives you a little bounce to your step. This keeps you dancing longer and is easier on the feet, ankles, and knees. These have tested this with a 250 lb professional clogger and he did some massive stomps without any damage.

Light Weight – For it’s size this board weights much less than other boards. This makes it easier to carry around to your favorite band at the far end of the field.

Sound Hole – This board comes with extra large sound release hole that let some of the natural resonating sound out. This make the board more of an instrument making the sounds you make more apart of the overall sound of the band you are dancing too.

Non-Surface Finish – Most dance boards come with some kind of surface finish and they charge you big bucks. We found it’s best not to have any kind of finish on a dance board because the natural drag coefficient of unfinished wood provides the best all around performance. Dancers that use a lot of stepping motions need a board less slick, dancers who use a lot of buck step need a board that is more slick. The use of corn meal is highly recommended as this lets you ‘tune’ your board to the perfect amount of slip. Corn meal allows the board to be adjusted perfect to the dancer.
