  5. Flamenco

  7. drill team
  8. or tap.
Vinyl flooring is also a great option for all-purpose dance flooring. It can be used in permanent or semi-permanent installations.

The top five home dance floors on a budget are:

1. Rosco Dance Floor Reversible

This lightweight home dance flooring by Rosco weighs 1.9 pounds per linear foot or 255 pounds per roll. Its flexibility allows for it to be rolled and unrolled as needed or taken on the road.

It's best to store this material suspended on a rod.

The semi-matte, non-skid finish provides the controlled slip that ballet and modern dancers require. The Rosco home dance floor is sold by the linear foot or as a complete 131.3-foot full roll as a bolt. Cleaning is simple using the Rosco floor cleaner, also available through Greatmats.
