There is no exact calculation for sizing a dance floor. As a rule of thumb, dance floor manufactures recommend 2
to 4 square feet per dancer (for modern dance). Usually, not all guests dance at once. Some crowds have a
higher percentage of the total guests that will dance at once than others. If you feel that you will have large
amount of quests dancing at once you should have a larger floor.
12X12 or 144 square feet-up to 60 guests total
16X16 or 256 square feet-up to 100 guests total
18X18 or 324 square feet-up to 140 quests total
18X20 or 360 square feet-up to 160 quests total
20X20 or 400 square feet-up to 180 guests total
20X22 or 440 square feet-up to 210 guests total
22X22 or 484 square feet-up to 240 guests total
If your calculating the space needed for each
dance floor add 3 feet onto each dimension.
This gives area for dance floor trim and some
space between seating and the dance floor.
Example: 12X12 dance floor add 3 feet to
15X15= 225 square feet needed under tent
These recommendations are based on feed
back from past customers and our own
experience with putting on large parties.
These size floors will only accommodate a
percentage of the total guests. Again, if you
have large dance crowd think bigger.
