Why is Sprung Flooring important to you?
Sprung Flooring is important to me to not only provide pristine sound quality, but to also keep my joints and body safe and healthy.
Why do you love O'Mara Sprung Floors?
I love O’Mara Sprung Floors because they truly provide a sound quality unlike any other. As a tap dancer, you want to be heard, recognized, and appreciated for the music you create for the world’s ear to hear. I would not want to dance, train, and practice on anything but O’Mara Floors.
Some career highlights I’d like to share are assisting for Revel Dance Convention for three years, receiving 2nd overall at Radix dance convention with my senior year tap solo, and receiving choreography awards on my groups, solos, duos, and trios I have choreographed for my students.
