DIY Dance floor

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I was wondering if anyone had ever tried making their own small dance floor for barre practice? I was thinking of placing over carpet or other flooring. I found a good video below but very expensive, and I'm in the UK - I wouldn't be looking for something this big. I think the plywood would be doable from somewhere like B&Q, but the Marley vinyl I've no idea where you would source this? Could you use ordinary vinyl, like off-cuts from a carpet shop? It would need to be the correct texture, enough grip but not too much.

Just wondered if anyone had any ideas or experience of this?

I used the Marley. Was able to buy a small piece, about 6x8 or 9.

I’m sorry to say that I don’t remember and no longer have paperwork on it.

Some dancefloor companies like Harlequin are making portable 'at home practice' floors now that are a few M's squared. I've had emails from 2 companies in the last few months I'm sure.  Just google for details. Otherwise there are threads floating around on building your own floor somewhere and yes you could just lay a small piece of marley on top from somewhere like ebay or see if your studio has any off cuts left lying around.

I was able to purchase a leftover scrap from Harlequin. That was about 10 years ago. I can look for the receipt.
