Shatterproof. High Reflectivity. Light weight.
Glassless Dance Mirror (Mylar Mirror) and Optional Rolling Base
High Rolling Base
Low Rolling Base
Mylar dance mirrors (glassless mirrors) are made of a highly reflective, shatter proof material that provides excellent image quality. These glassless mirror panels are made from metallized mirrored mylar plastic film. They give a brighter, sharper reflection than plate glass, with no ghost images. Our popular 4' x 8' mirror, with a rolling base, weighs only twelve pounds! Best of all, our dance studio mirrors won't shatter, making them much safer than glass. Our mirrors were featured on America's Best Dance Crew (Fanny Pak ABDC Season 7 Madonna Challenge Week 3). It's the perfect ballerina mirror.
Dance mirrors are an excellent teaching aid, for teachers to show students a dance move while the student stands next to them. This helps avoid the problem where students perform the move on the incorrect side or fail to reproduce the proper expression because they can't see the entire body of the teacher. By standing next to the student while both see each other in the mirror, the student is better able to learn and reproduce a given dance move or routine. Similarly, it's an incredibly useful tool for self-evaluation by dancers so they can see their own mistakes and correct them.
Effective dance training aid for all types of dance including contemporary, ballet, jazz, tap, modern, hip-hop, irish dance, and ballroom dancing. Since these mirrors have no glass, they are extremely light, very portable, and hence great for travel or frequent transport from room to room. They are frequently used in professional dance studios, by high school dance teams, and as home dance studio mirrors.
NOTE: Because mylar mirrors are sensitive to touch, adult supervision is advised when children are present.
- Available in three styles: Panel only with no wheels, vertical panel on frame with rolling wheels, or horizontal panel on base with rolling wheels.
- Rolling wheel base:
- Wheel base legs extend 12" in front of mirror and 12" behind mirror to improve stability against tipping.
- Low Rolling Base: Lifts mirror 4" off the ground.
- High Rolling Base: Lifts mirror 2 feet off the ground.
- A specially designed wheeled base allows you to offset the glassless mirrors for easy storage. For example, a 36' long mirror wall (composed of 9 vertical panels) requires under 4'x5' of floor space when stacked in this offset fashion.
- Panel thicknesss: 1.25"
- Mylar thickness: 1 mil (=0.0254 mm)
- For wall mounting, panels come with two pre-attached aluminum mounting L-brackets, each about 12" long. Just drive screws through the brackets to mount the panel to your wall. These mounting brackets are not used with rolling bases.
- Our Glassless Mirrors are UL rated as fire retardant (UL File #R7754) for fire safety. Other glassless mirrors that do not have such a rating should not be placed in public facilities, as they present a fire hazard.
- Please allow approx. 3-4 weeks for production and delivery.
