How To Make A Breakdancing Mat

Need to know how to make a breakdancing mat? Look no further. We have put together a step-by-step tutorial that will have you spinning on your head in no time. There are several methods you can use to make a breakdancing mat without breaking your budget.

Things You Will Need:

  • Carpet Padding
  • Cardboard
  • Linoleum
  • Duct Tape
  1. The easiest way to make a breakdancing mat is to cut up a cardboard box. Cardboard is usually free and can be found pretty much at any of your local stores. Cardboard boxes are one of the first materials ever used to make a breakdancing mat. Simply disassemble the box without tearing it and lay it out flat. You may have to use several boxes to make a good breakdancing mat. Once you have the area you wish to cover with your breakdancing mat covered, use duct tape to tape all of the boxes together.  
  2. If cardboard is not your thing, you can also make a breakdancing mat out of linoleum. Head to your local hardware store and buy enough linoleum to cover the area you want to dance on. The great thing about using linoleum to make a breakdancing mat is that the material is durable and smoother than cardboard.  
  3. Another great material you can use to make a breakdancing mat is carpet padding. Carpet padding is the material that can be found under most carpets.  You can buy it at your local hardware store as well. Simply buy enough to dance on, and get to dancing.

Since breakdancing has its origins in the streets, it only stands to reason that a lot of the materials used to make a breakdancing mat are easy to find or inexpensive. You will find that most real breakdancers don't use overpriced expensive mats that anyone can buy.
