We are considering turning what was once my kids' playroom into a room where DD can practice dance. We need to rip out the carpet and put down some type of flooring for her that would be good to practice on. I think marley would be way to expensive for us. Does anyone have any suggestions on what type of floor to put down? Something that's good for dancing on but wont break the bank?

I am not sure what kind of price range you want, but this dance floor is $2.71/sqft (https://www.greatmats.com/dance-flooring/rosco-dance-floor-perLF.php) or $2.63/sqft for this one (https://www.greatmats.com/dance-flooring/rocso-adagio-touring-portable-dance-flooring-cut-lengths.php)
Plain rubber flooring is $1.70/sqft (https://www.greatmats.com/products/plyometric-plyorobic-rubber.php). If you are pulling up carpet, you likely already have plywood sub-floor in place and these can go right on top of that. If you need something less expensive than the rubber flooring I would use a low-priced roll vinyl with more of a matte texture ($0.99/sqft https://www.lowes.com/pd/Armstrong-Flooring-Pickwick-Landing-I-12-ft-W-x-Cut-to-Length-Dark-Brown-Wood-Look-Low-Gloss-Finish-Sheet-Vinyl/999978490)

We used two sheets of plywood and some fake wood flooring stuff that we took out when redoing some flooring in our house. So it's 8x8 ft. Not the best but the girls mostly use it for tap and turns, so it serves it purpose.
