Portable Dance Floor + Backpack!

After months of searching for the right manufacturer to work with our growing brand, we finally found the right team to design fantastic backpacks for us! Now, our Jet Setter dance board--our most portable dance floor, coming at 4 pounds in weight and 23 inches in diameter--now comes with its own backpack! These backpacks hold your Jet Setter dance board in the main pocket and have a large front pocket that can hold dancewear, books, snacks, dance shoes, and even a small laptop. (Check out some of our videos on Instagram for examples of us packing this backpack with different items!) What would you carry in your Dance Daze Dance Boards backpack?

Why Do We Make All of Our Dance Boards With Sustainable Wood?

First, you may be wondering: What is "sustainable wood"? When we speak about the wood we use to create our dance boards being sustainable, we are referring to the way in which the wood is sourced. Sustainably-sourced wood comes from forests where logging is minimized and animal habits are protected and preserved. You may have seen us post on social media about how the wood we use for our dance boards is 100% FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) Certified. This means that the wood we use comes from forests that are responsibly managed and that are used to benefit the environment and society. When you purchase Dance Daze Dance Boards, which are made from FSC Certified wood, you are supporting sustainable...

Spotlighting Our 2021 Best Seller: The Jet Setter Dance Board

Our smallest dance board and our best-selling dance board in 2021 is The Jet Setter. We designed this board because we wanted an extremely portable, affordable dance board that recreational and pre-professional dancers could use to practice their technique at home or on-the-go. Co-founder Saumirah discovered that, though it is only 23 inches in diameter, the Jet Setter is still perfect for practicing tap dance combinations (it really forces you to dance with your feet underneath you!), non-traveling pointe exercises, and even pirouette turns if you’re already a somewhat strong turner (otherwise, you may fall off of the board, so be prepared for that!). Some of our DDDB Brand Ambassadors (search for the hashtag #DDDBambassador across social platforms!) have shown us that they...

5 Ways Dance Daze Dance Boards Can Support Your Goals for the New Year

If you follow me (Dance Daze Dance Boards Co-founder Saumirah McWoodson) online, you may have heard me say before that I’m not the biggest fan of setting new year resolutions for myself. I am more the kind of person to focus on one or a few words for the year (i.e., in the past, one of my words was “community”), and I feel that this really helps to guide my focus on what experiences I create for myself, what I say “yes” to, and what I say “no” to. So far, I haven’t yet picked my words or specific intentions for the year, but I am focusing on the ideas of moving, creating, and getting out into nature more. Additionally, I’m...

How to Use Dance Daze Dance Boards

While there are so many ways to use Dance Daze Dance Boards, our co-founder Saumirah McWoodson loves using them most for doing outdoor ballet barre classes and for learning tap dance combinations from YouTube! Throughout 2020 and 2021, Saumirah says that using her Dance Daze Dance Boards helped her to establish consistent practice routines, improve her ballet technique, and to develop her own creative practice. While Saumirah is most experienced in classical ballet and tap--as those are the styles of dance she began studying as a child and continued practicing and training in through her adult years--those who practice other styles of dance love using Dance Daze Dance Boards as well. Dance Daze Dance Boards can be used for practicing balancing,...
