TOP DANCE Leads the New Era of LED Dance Floors

Feb 18, 2024 | Company News

TOP DANCE, as the world’s largest manufacturer of wireless LED dance floors, has sold the LED dance floors to over 50 countries globally. From the initial passion at the foundation to the international recognition today, TOP DANCE’s journey is not just about promoting a product; it is a story about dreams, innovation, and perseverance.
In this process, TOP DANCE continually breaks through technological barriers and challenge market limits to ensure that each dance floor brings an unprecedented visual and experiential enjoyment to our customers.

The reason why we are called TOP DANCE is that from the beginning, we aimed to become the TOP in the industry. We ensure that every piece of LED dance floor tile we export is the TOP in terms of quality, technology, effects, and functionality.

The Founding of TOP DANCE

Since the initial contact with the industry, TOP DANCE’s founder Sandy Guan gradually discovered common issues in the market: limited product functions, failing to meet users’ diverse needs; inconsistent customer service quality, with many companies unable to provide satisfactory after-sales support; and more importantly, a lack of innovation drive in the entire industry. The slow technological innovation of products resulted in a homogeneity of dance floor products on the market, unable to provide a unique user experience.

During her career, Sandy had a deep conversation with Max, a manager in charge of an event rental company. Max’s company specialized in providing equipment rental services for various events, including corporate annual meetings, music festivals, and private parties, supplying dance floors and lighting equipment. In discussions with Max, Sandy learned about the challenges the event rental industry faced regarding dance floor installation and effects: traditional wired LED dance floor installations were time-consuming, limiting the flexibility of events; moreover, existing dance floors lacked innovative visual effects, failing to meet customers’ pursuit of unique experiences.

Max shared a specific case: they once installed a traditional wired LED dance floor at a high-end corporate annual meeting. Due to the lengthy installation time, it almost consumed the entire venue setup time, forcing other decorations and setups to be rushed and affecting the overall event quality. Despite the dance floor meeting basic functional needs, it lacked the flexibility and innovation to match the event theme and atmosphere, ultimately affecting customer satisfaction.

This case deeply touched Sandy, who believed that these problems could be completely solved through technological innovation, such as developing a wireless, quickly installable LED dance floor that could significantly reduce installation time and provide a variety of visual effects to meet customers’ needs for personalized experiences. However, when Sandy presented this innovative proposal to the management of her company at the time, it was ignored and suppressed, and her ideas were not valued.

In 2013, Sandy decided to resign and founded TOP DANCE, a company dedicated to providing the most advanced, convenient, and visually stunning wireless LED dance floors to the world. Her goal was to change the status quo of the event rental industry and offer better flooring solutions to event planners and rental service providers, thus enhancing the end customer’s experience.

Development and Challenges

A turning point in the story of TOP DANCE came with the introduction of the industry’s first magnetic LED dance floor during a meaningful customer visit.

In 2016, after attending an exhibition in the United States, founder Sandy visited our long-time partner Johnny to resolve his after-sales issues. After completing the tutorial, Johnny began attempting to install TOP DANCE TP-873 Starlit dance floor. Although this model utilized cutting-edge wireless technology, its interlocking installation process proved to be a daunting task for the older Johnny. Sweat beaded on Johnny’s forehead, and his hands, roughened from years of labor, clumsily and slowly assembled the dance floor, with each interlocking piece seemingly testing his patience and strength.

Johnny’s every clumsy movement was like a silent call, speaking of design flaws and a desire for improvement. In this moment, Sandy made a promise to Johnny on the spot: not only to gift him a brand-new dance floor but more importantly, to thoroughly innovate this product to simplify the installation process so that anyone could easily complete the installation. The determination in her eyes, the spirit of facing difficulties and daring to innovate, was fully demonstrated at that moment.

Carrying this firm determination, Sandy immediately initiated a new development project upon returning to her country. To seek breakthroughs, she and the R&D team crossed national boundaries, traveling through the United States, Germany, India, and other countries, drawing inspiration from the best global practices. This transnational technology exploration journey was not only a pursuit of technology but also a fulfillment of customer promises.

The Development Process of Magnetic LED Dance Floor Tiles

The development and market launch of our magnetic floor tiles underwent a lengthy process. As the first in the industry, we experienced many challenges and failures before achieving success. We had to ensure that every floor tile shipped from TOP DANCE was of premium quality, worthy of the TOP title.

First, we had to solve the magnet issue: how to keep two floor tiles from separating when people were dancing vigorously on them, which required careful consideration of the magnetic force. Sandy visited many raw material manufacturers and, together with the design team, tested numerous solutions. Finally, we determined the size and arrangement of the magnets, and our quality inspection personnel manually connected and disconnected two dance floor tiles over 2,000 times without the magnets breaking, confirming the viability of our solution.

Then came the power supply issue. To achieve the lighting effect of the LEDs, the floor tiles needed a continuous and stable power supply, ensuring both the safety of the tiles in use and the safety of the dancers. An external power source was needed as a transition to ensure the output voltage was safe for human contact and that a single mistake in assembly wouldn’t result in the entire set of floor tiles being damaged. After multiple tests, we chose Meanwell power supplies, a well-known brand that ensures safe connections and longer use due to its superior quality. Our technical R&D personnel also implemented anti-reverse and short-circuit protection designs, ensuring that incorrect installation would not damage the entire set of floor tiles.

By the end of 2016, after countless trials and improvements, TOP DANCE finally developed the magnetic dance floor—a product that significantly simplified the installation process and achieved a completely wireless installation, greatly simplifying the setup process. The accompanying ARTENT control system also enabled cool effects. The introduction of remote control functionality made wireless control simpler and more convenient than ever before. After multiple stability tests and inspections, the product officially went on sale in 2017.

After development, TOP DANCE invited Johnny to visit our factory in China, offering him a unique opportunity to personally inspect our latest product. Johnny, who has very high standards for product quality, provided invaluable feedback. He carefully studied the product, from material selection to installation, operation, and maintenance, impressing everyone present with his professionalism.

When Johnny tested a brand-new set of products, his face lit up with unmistakable joy. This product, with its excellent performance and superior comfort, far exceeded his expectations. A month later, Johnny called, his voice filled with excitement and gratitude. He told us that the product had greatly improved his using experience, with its durability and comfort being three times that of previous products he had used.

Hearing this, everyone of TOP DANCE were filled with joy. However, this joy was not just because our product had successfully entered the market, but because all efforts were gradually approaching our goal—not just to manufacture excellent products, but to truly impact and change the entire industry.

The First in the Industry, Exclusively by TOP DANCE: The Creation of the Battery-Powered Magnetic LED Dance Floor

The Development Process of Battery Magnetic Dance Floor Tiles

TOP DACNE has always been committed to simplifying the installation process for our customers. Although our magnetic dance floors use magnetic connections that don’t require wiring between the tiles, the need for cables at the edges to connect to a power source has still been a concern. Some customers reported difficulties with wiring at certain event venues due to restrictions, prompting us to develop a new wireless battery-powered floor tile.

However, this development process was more complex than anticipated. In the early stages, TOP DANCE faced significant technical challenges. Ensuring the durability and aesthetic of the floor tiles while achieving a long battery life and rapid charging became our primary concerns. Additionally, the substantial research and development costs and production adjustments strained our finances, pushing us to the brink of bankruptcy. Nonetheless, our team did not give up, believing this product could bring innovation to the market and unprecedented convenience to users.

Solving Charging Issues
TOP DANCE battery-powered magnetic dance floors can be charged in 4 hours and have a battery life of 12 hours. TOP DANCE’s technicians conducted numerous experiments to gradually increase the battery life from 8 to 10, and finally to 12 hours, continuously crossing new thresholds and optimizing the product.

Addressing Control Method Issues
To achieve true wireless functionality, besides the battery, controlling the effects was another challenge. Initially, magnetic floor tiles were controlled via an external controller. Through the efforts of the TOP DANCE R&D team, the controller was integrated into the edge of the dance floor, eliminating the need for an external controller and enabling effect control switching, achieving a completely wireless assembly.

Overcoming Difficulties and Improving Product Quality
During this challenging period, our relentless effort and innovation eventually overcame the technical obstacles. We adopted high-efficiency batteries and optimized charging designs to ensure long-term use of the floor tiles without interruption due to battery issues. We also simplified the installation process, allowing for quick setup and disassembly, significantly enhancing the user experience.

Finally, in 2021, we developed the world’s first battery-powered magnetic dance floor, truly achieving a wireless installation for the entire dance floor.

During this process, TOP DANCE faced another challenge with product quality—minor color variations in a batch of floor tiles due to glass material issues. Instead of concealing or ignoring the problem, we decided to dismantle and reinstall all affected tiles at a loss. Although this decision led to short-term financial losses, TOP DANCE believes that maintaining the highest quality standards is the only way to earn customer trust and market recognition.

Continuously Innovation: Unique in the Industry, Maintenance-Free

To address customers’ maintenance concerns, TOP DANCE continuously upgraded the dance floor panels, simplifying maintenance through technological means. In 2021, in addition to developing the battery version, TOP DANCE also updated the design of the dance floor tiles. To make the connection more stable, we upgraded the dance floor panels to 18 magnets, with replaceable magnetic strips. The mainboard was moved from inside the floor tile to the bottom, allowing both the magnetic strip and mainboard to be easily removed and replaced by unscrewing (no need for professional technicians for maintenance), and even the glass panel and internal LED strips could be simply replaced.

Insist on Customer-Oriented Innovation

TOP DANCE continues to innovate, fulfilling customer needs. We developed the magnetic and battery-powered magnetic LED dance floors in response to feedback about installation difficulties and maintenance issues. Our professional sales and after-sales teams provide 24-hour service, offering timely and efficient solutions and after-sales support to ease any concerns customers may have.

As TOP DANCE’s reputation has grown, so has our customer base in the United States, with our LED dance floors occupying a significant market share. To avoid additional tariffs for American customers, as well as shipping costs and complicated paperwork, we established a warehouse in LA for more affordable prices and faster pickup times.

Customer Success Stories

Using TOP DANCE’s wireless LED dance floors, our customers have significantly enhanced the appeal and satisfaction of their event projects, sparking lively discussions on social media and effectively expanding their business reach. With its unique visual effects and easy installation process, this LED dance floor has provided innovative solutions for various scenes, including music video shoots, opening new commercial possibilities. The high recognition from our customers has led to repeat purchases, demonstrating the excellent performance and continuous trust in TOP DANCE products on the market.

In a highly anticipated year-end party, an American event planning company used TOP DANCE’s wireless LED dance floor, creating an unprecedented visual feast. The unique feature of this dance floor is its ability to change over 200 dazzling effects controlled by remote and tablet according to the party theme, offering the audience an immersive visual experience and becoming the highlight of the party.

This successful event significantly enhanced the company’s brand image and earned them more trust and recognition in the industry. Subsequently, the company’s business volume increased significantly, with many large event organizers seeking cooperation. The purchasing manager, Michael, was very satisfied with the performance of TOP DANCE products and contacted us to purchase an additional 3D LED dance floor, adding more creativity and dynamism to future events.
