After weeks of preparation...

THE NEW TAP BOARDS!!!
Fixit did his magic on Saturday, using a jigsaw to great effect. What we have now are boards that run from wall to wall, and therefore cannot move underneath the tap-dancers. The old green boards didn't cover the entire floor space and were held in place by grip mats underneath, and although this worked reasonably well, there was still movement. Which was disconcerting, to say the least. The new system is still able to be easily packed up at the end of each day, and the lack of grip-mats underneath and gaffer tape on top means that the whole floor is much flatter, and safer.
So my new boards are completely ACE!! Fixit is a board-cutting legend. I'm so excited.
I tried them out for the first time tonight and they were fabulous to dance on. And not at all slippery.
I'm not going to think about the dings and scuffs that they received tonight. They just add character.
