Practice at home on a world-class ballet floor

Sonata™ Foam Sprung Ballet Dance Floor provides much needed shock absorption to almost any existing hard surface area. It's often used in professional studios as an instant dance rehearsal floor over concrete surfaces. Additionally, its ease of use makes it the perfect ballet floor for home practice. Furthermore, it's also suitable for dance styles including contemporary, hip-hop, jazz, street and modern. Not suitable for hard shoe work.

Ideally suited for use on laminate, solid wood and many other smooth, hard floors (see Q&A below for information about use on carpet). Always ensure the floor is laid out flat and fully secured before each use.


Controlled-glide surface 

Dance and perform in confidence with a beautifully textured controlled-glide surface. Optimum friction levels prevent slipping while still allowing you to glide effortlessly across the floor.

Foam-sprung shock absorption 

A 5mm compressed foam backing offers subtle, yet noticeable shock absorption. It's effective cushioning helps dampen impacts from leaping movements, while en pointe work remains unrestricted.

A professional ballet floor - cut down to size

We use the same professional dance floor you'll find in hundreds of fully-fitted professional dance studios worldwide. We've cut it down to size to make the perfect dance mat for home ballet practice. 

Roll out when you need it, roll up and store when you don't.

You can roll out your dance floor whenever you need it. It lays flat almost instantly from the roll. Similarly, it's just as easy to roll up and store when not in use. Our dance floors and dance mats are ideal for use on laminate, solid wood and many other smooth, hard floors (see Q&A below for information about use on carpet). Always ensure the floor is laid out flat and fully secured before each use.






Q: Is this floor suitable for en pointe work?

A: Absolutely. The lightly textured surface helps give you grip and control your movements. Please also see the reviews (tab above) from our customers for their own experiences. 

Q: Is it the same as a professional dance floor in ballet studios?

A: Yes, we use Sonata™ Foam-Sprung dance floor, which is a professional studio floor from Le Mark. It's the exact same floor you'll find in many leading dance studios. We simply cut it down to the size you order.

Q: Can dance floors be used on carpet?

A: Although not specifically designed for it, we have many customers who do use our Dance Floors and Dance Mats on short-pile carpets and have been really pleased. It is important to make sure the dance mat is secure (a 33m roll of dance floor tape is supplied with each floor), to prevent the floor from slipping or sliding and remains flat.

Q: Dance floor vs dance mat - What's the difference?

A: There's no difference at all between our dance floors and dance mats, only their size. A dance mat is simply a large dance floor that's been cut down to size. It's exactly the same material we use in fully-fitted professional dance studios.

Q: Does this floor come in bigger sizes?
A: Yes, all our dance floors are cut from jumbo rolls which are up to 20m long. As you can imagine, they get heavier the bigger they get, so we recommend calling us on 01480 469026 to discuss.

Great product. Works very well.

Great flooring


Great flooring! It has just the right amount of "give" for ballet and essentially the right "feel"! Very happy with this purchase and good value from GafferTape compared with the few others that supply such a specific product :o) PS It cuts well if you need to make adjustments.

Ballet dance floor

Purchased for my daughter to keep her in a safe dance practice space, whilst doing her local and associate zoom ballet classes. I purchased the 2 x 1 meter roll out sonata foam flooring in black. She has found the mat to have a perfect surface to do her pointe work on plenty of grip no slipping! Easy to roll out and the tape supplied hasn’t caused any damage to our laminate flooring (we did do a test before hand) Due to the nature of the surface it does seem to attract dust however this is easily cleaned before putting away. I received excellent communication from start to finish I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this flooring to anyone who is considering purchasing it’s worth the money to know your observing a better safe dance practice in your home.

I bought this to put down in my garage to make a practice studio. It is excellent, very good quality. It arrived very quickly too. I was sceptical as it is quite an investment but it came highly recommended by a dance teacher who says it has saved her knees while teaching from home during Lockdown. It has proved worth it.

Foam Sprung Ballet Dance Floor

Jenny Wilkins

I am so happy with this flooring, I'm using it at home for teaching my pupils ballet and Streetdance. It's the perfect surface, not slippery but great for turning on too. I feel supported and able to dance properly. The strap that comes with it is great for storing it safely too. Communication and delivery speed are excellent with gattftape.com,I would use again and highly recommend, it's almost like being back in the studio!

Brilliant floor for ballet training at home


I was hesitant to spend on a dance floor but do not regret buying this at all. It has helped me feel confident dancing at home and promotes safe practice. I am very impressed at the quality in comparison to more expensive big-brand alternatives.

Brilliant product


As a ballet teacher suffering with "lockdown knees" from dancing in my kitchen, the Sonata Sprung Floor has been a lifesaver. The product is fantastic - rolls out easily and 'settles' very quickly - lovely surface to dance on. Excellent customer service via the website Chat function and also super speedy delivery. I would highly recommend.

Perfect temporary floor

Doug Hutson

My daughter is studying for a degree in Performing Arts and like most students at present is confined to home learning. The laminate floor in her flat is not an ideal surface on which to dance, so we needed a floor covering suitable for various genres of dance. I ordered the Sonata Dance Floor on Friday afternoon, delivered Monday morning before 9.30 and my daughter says it's an amazing floor to dance on!
