Carpet tape and wide paper tape are the best options for securing a dance mat to the floor. The type of tape varies based on the flooring on which the mat is secured.
If you are attempting to keep your dance mat from sliding around on the carpet, carpet tape is suggested. Carpet tape is generally double-sided and made of fabric. It is found at many home improvement stores, such as Lowe's and Home Depot.
When securing a dance mat to a hard surface, such as tile or hardwood, it is best to secure the mat with wide paper tape. Using paper tape in place of duct tape is less caustic on the dance mat and is easier to remove when finished with the activity.
