.:Dramatic Dance Floors:.

If you want to make sure your guests have an amazing time, and they get onto the dance floor, give them something they can't resist dancing on. For the daring couple, consider building the dance floor over a swimming pool. For something more dramatic, try a dance floor filled with flowers. Or if you want to go elegant, you can never go wrong with marble. No matter what you choose, you'll be sure to get your guests grooving.
