Hi I think that there were several threads that dealt with this topic. Try the search feature at the top.

Marley is a must ( for me anyway). I was only a ballet dancer and have no idea about tap, but all the studios in NY have marley and also tap classes.

British Harlequin are the leaders in all types of dance flooring. They also have an American company.

Tap dancing sounds best on wood floors - plus the taps can sometimes damage marley rubber, so if you have the facilities to have separate studios for tap (wooden) and everything else (marley) that would probably be best in the long run.

finding information about springing floors is tougher than you'd think it would be. I installed two studio floors in June and will be adding a third soon. i love my "marley" but won't put it in my third studio because it will be used for tap and Hip Hop. If your studio will be strictly dedicared to tap classes I would either install a wood flooring or look into one of the roll out flooring products marketed as being tough enough for tap.
