Center Stage Floors has become the leading event dance floor provider in Texas and continues to grow beyond the DFW border because of our extraordinary service, unequaled capacity, and continuous product improvement and development. As the designers and manufacturers of our unique products, we have the capacity to create custom floor styles and shapes that are simply unavailable elsewhere. Our focus is on quality and our aim is to create unforgettable memories for our clients. We know there are no second chances when it comes to your special event—and the dance floor is the single-largest piece of decor, visually at “center stage.”
Center Stage Floors (once DFW Dance Floors) came from humble beginnings when it was founded in 2013 with two determined staff members passionate about creating an exceptional event floor unlike anything on the market. Today, we’ve grown our staff to a team of 18 in a much larger facility —and continue to engineer and manufacture our floors and other products in-house, to ensure the highest quality and lowest cost possible.
A DIFFERENT KIND OF FLOOR
We not only create the highest quality custom-made dance floors you’ll ever step foot on—we’re in the business of creating memories you can remember for a lifetime. Your wedding, special event, graduation, or celebration will only happen once. We want to make it unforgettable.
We have a 9-year history in the events business and have a reputation for reliability. We respond quickly to the unexpected, improvise when needed, and work well with other vendors.
But what really makes us stand out from the rest is our unique product. Unlike our competition, we don’t do cheap vinyl flooring. Why does that matter? Most times, when renting a ballroom, your venue will supply a dance floor for free. If you want a white floor, most think the best way to achieve their desired look is to wrap or “cover” the floor with vinyl film. But that’s not the only way––and it’s certainly not the best.
Meet Chris Soisett.
Born and raised near Charlotte, North Carolina, Chris graduated from NC State University with a degree in civil engineering and moved to Washington State with his college sweetheart and wife, Anne Lincoln, where he worked in civil and structural engineering. They moved to Texas in 2004 for Ann’s post-doctoral work at Rice University and Chris obtained his professional engineering license and continued his work in civil engineering. He stumbled upon a dance floor rental business in 2010 while at a friend’s wedding in Houston. This business intrigued Chris and he went into a partnership with a dance floor franchise working out of his garage and delivering floors with his personal pick-up truck. During this time, he focused hard on delivering the best product possible and always experimented with all the products that were available to him on the market. He quickly gained a solid reputation for providing the best-looking white dance floors in the area and the business grew quickly. But Chris began having difficulty with the flooring materials used by the franchise and was going to great lengths trying to continue delivering the highest-quality product he could. By May 2013 Chris knew he needed to create something much better than portable dance floor manufacturers offered and in July 2013, the first generation of the new design was rolled out and his small team of two hit the ground running. The products Center Stage produces have only continued to improve since then and today, they are producing the 5th generation of the unique Center Stage floors.
Chris’ engineering background has been instrumental in the development and improvement of the products provided by Center Stage Floors. He can’t resist generating new products when clients hand him their vision. Center Stage has seven proprietary aluminum extrusion designs and has progressed from being able to offer simple rectangular floors made from 4×4 panels to offering six diameters of circular floors, elliptical floors, hexagonal floors, and curved pathways allowing Center Stage to fill ballrooms and other venues wall-to-wall, including building tightly around columns with panels as small as 1’x1’. Due to the unique design of our panels and continual research and development, we have progressed from offering white or black floors to literally hundreds of options for floor surfaces with the largest inventory of portable dance flooring of any rental operation in the world at over 25,000 square feet and growing.
Chris’ inventive designs have catapulted Center Stage into becoming the nation’s leading dance floor designer–and their passion for high-quality, uniquely designed products will keep them there for decades to come.
