Travel Board: Raw Birch


The ideal sprung floor for public transportation. Take your shoes, take your floor: practice safely wherever you go with this folding sprung dance floor.

Protect your board while traveling (and protect yourself from the inevitable “tap dust”) with our Travel Board Bag.



The Beginner Kids Irish Travel Board: a folding sprung tap floor with attached carrying handles designed for travel, especially by air! This Sprung Birch Board comes unfinished. The raw wood of this unfinished birch floor provides an ideal surface for Irish dancers. Fiberglass toes and heels have good grip and excellent sound. Young, beginning Irish dancers can dance right on the raw wood. The aluminum oxide residue from metal taps will give the floor a black patina; because the wood is raw it will absorb the residue and will not clean with the ease of our finished floor surfaces. However, you will experience the same performance, resilience, and quality of sound you love about O’Mara Sprung Floors.

**EXCEPTION** This floor is not designed for hoofers, tap dancers practicing advanced steps, or Irish dancers wearing shoes with metal taps. If you wear metal taps on your shoes and dance heavily on your floor, please purchase a ProLine Maple Floor. If your tap repertoire includes: shuffle riffs, digs, shiggy bops/shovels, flam, you will dent a Birch floor very quickly. Please choose our more durable Travel Board: ProLine Maple.

Foam blocks adhered to the underside of our resilient wood panels absorb landing forces and return energy, protecting your body and extending your career. The sound quality and resilience are top-notch. You’ll hear every nuance on this board.
