Starlit Dancefloor Hire
My LED starlit dancefloor will transform your already beautiful venue into what can only be described as a glamorous party palace. Not only will it create the perfect ambience for your first dance, but it will also become the glowing centrepiece ready for the night’s entertainment. The light from the sparkling LEDs will allow you to adjust the venue lighting much lower than usual which, will enhance the lit decor around the room such as light up letters, coloured uplighting and more which will also compliment your sparkly dancefloor.`

How big do I need the Starlit Dancefloor?
Choosing the perfect size of your twinkling dancefloor can be based on a number of factors. There could be an area of the room where the dancefloor would look incredible but is restricted in space. In my own opinion: I think it would be better to use this area where it looks right and sacrifice a bigger dancefloor if it makes the room look aesthetically correct (trust me – I’m talking my way out of extra income here). Ultimately the dancefloor will create the wow factor even if it’s smaller than you’d hoped – it will have enough space to create those iconic first dance shots. Your guests will still dance even if there’s no room on the dancefloor. They’ll just rotate throughout the night giving everyone the opportunity to ‘dance on the stars’.
On average the most popular size LED starlit dancefloor hired is 16ft x 16ft which, generally speaking, is enough space for 60 – 75 dancers. You can, of course, fit more dancers on there if your dancers are perfectly positioned and only do the 2-step, but you’ll lack space if everyone’s a breakdancer – I’m sure you get the idea.
Please don’t feel you need to hire a starlit dancefloor based on how many guests are attending. Some will be at the bar, some will be outside smoking, some will need to leave early and some will be making their way through the buffet before the venue staff take it away.
Please see below the most popular imperial square sizes and the average number of dancers the LED dancefloor will hold:
12ft x 12ft – 35-45 dancers
14ft x 14ft – 45-60 dancers
16ft x 16ft – 60-75 dancers
18ft x 18ft – 75-95 dancers
20ft x 20ft – 95-115 dancers
22ft x 22ft – 115-135 dancers
24ft x 24ft – 135-160 dancers
If your venue is fairly big then it can sometimes look a little silly having a rather average size dancefloor. This then comes down to whether you’d prefer to increase the size of the floor to look aesthetically correct in the venue or, try and gather other props and services to fill the space such as light up letters, sweet cart, photo booth etc. There’s no right or wrong way and you’re more than welcome to ask for advice.
What effects does the LED Dancefloor have?
My Starlit Dancefloor has a variety of effects that can be changed at the click of the button via remote which, makes it perfect for photographers on your big day! This means they can set the dancefloor to still rather than sparkling to get that incredible first dance photo. Generally, throughout the night the most popular setting is sparkling but you’re more than welcome to decide on the night.
How can I expect the Sparkly Dancefloor to be presented?
I take great pride in my dancefloor and keep it maintained to the highest level. Unfortunately, it’s not unusual to see dancefloors on hire with some panels not working due to a damaged contact or loose cable. The panel problem may not be able to be resolved on-site which, is why I always ensure I take spare panels just to be on the safe side.
After every hire, my dancefloor is not just cleaned by hand but machine polished ready for the next event. You can always expect it to be presented at the highest standard with a high gloss finish.
What should I look out for when hiring an LED Starlit Dancefloor?
When you’re searching for starlit dancefloor hire in Essex, Suffolk, Cambridge, Hertfordshire, Kent & London, you will notice that the price range fluctuates dramatically. A 16ft x 16ft starlit dancefloor will cost anywhere from £200 right up to £650. Everyone has a budget and of course, I respect that but, please bear this in mind before booking. It will look much better to not have an LED dancefloor than have one that has deep black scratches and scuffs across it because it’s not cleaned properly or regularly. Please also make sure you have an agreement in place with the LED dancefloor supplier that should any of the panels not work on the night, you are entitled to some form of refund. Imagine having that iconic first dance shot taken and one of the panels isn’t working or the dancefloor edging is black and filthy from never being cleaned. Trust me – it stands out like a sore thumb!
LED Starlit Dancefloor Questions
The short answer is no.
The dancefloor is an electrical circuit beneath the PVC panels. The panels are powered via spring loaded copper contacts on the side of each panel. If liquid is spilt on them it can blow the fuses and can continue to blow the fuse until the spillage has been found.
If there’s an issue with the dancefloor from a drink being spilt: it would need to be taken up, each panel have all 4/8 contacts cleaned and then laid again.
ALL dancefloors are the same – if there is electric beneath you, liquid is not the best idea to have above it. I just like to be honest with you.
The booking is for a maximum hire of 24hrs. If you need to extend this for any reason then please get in touch to discuss further.
I am more than happy to supply a protective layer to the venues floor before hand. The material I use is heavy duty tarpauline which is cut to size to the dancefloor so you won’t even know it’s there. There would be no extra charge for this service.
This is a venue where i’ve had to lay the protection before the floor. (This photo was taken before I cut it to size).
I can supply dancefloors from 14ft x 14ft right up to 28ft x 28ft if required. Generally the most popular size I hire is 16ft x 16ft but this can look small in some of the bigger venues where the capacity is likely to be around 200+.
If you’re unsure then please feel free to contact me as I may of already laid a floor at the venue you’ve booked. If I haven’t, it may be worth asking the venue what the average size is laid there.
No, if you’d prefer a rectangle dancefloor because that works well with the layout of the venue, this is no problem at all.
Yes, I look after everything from start to finish. I just need to know where you’d like it laid and the latest time the floor needs to be setup by. I’ll look after the rest.
No not at all, if you’ve already booked a DJ or you have a band playing – I won’t be offended and am more than happy to supply the dancefloor to your event.
Although I ask everyone not to take drinks on the dancefloor – I understand that you are not going to spend the night pointing this out to your guests.
You will NOT be fined for any spilt drinks on the dancefloor but please understand that IF the dancefloor doesn’t work for the rest of the evening due to a drink being spilt, I am unable to lift the floor, find the spillage and the lay the floor again on the night.
The starlit dancefloor is made up of several panels that connect by spring loaded copper contacts. If the floor isn’t flat at the contacts don’t touch, the dancefloor won’t work.
If the venue has had dancefloors (laid straight on their floor) previously then you’ll be fine. If you’d like the floor laid in a marquee, just make sure they’ll also be laying a level floor where the dancefloor will be going.
Unfortunately, rubber matting straight over the grass won’t work unless ofcourse that grass is incredibly flat.
If in doubt, get in touch. I am more than happy to speak to the venue / marquee company to discuss how we can make it work.
Nothing special or out the ordinary – I’ll be using a standard 13 amp plug.
Most venues are more than happy for suppliers to use standard black tape to hold down any cables that could be a trip hazard. However, some prefer a floor cable cover (see below) which doesn’t leave a sticky residue like most tapes. I tend to use these but am more than happy to use tape if preferred by the venue.
As much as I’d love to say yes as I think it would look incredible. I just can’t trust our typical british weather.
To give you an idea, a standard 16ft x 16ft starlit dancefloor weighs the same as an average size horse. Trying to pack this up in a hurry to try and save the damage it could cause is just not possible.
