Elevating Disney’s Performances with Premium Sprung Floors

Where Magic Meets Safety: an Unseen Partner in Spectacular Performances

Disneyland, a world of enchantment and magic, is renowned for delivering top-tier performances. Behind the scenes, there’s a critical factor to ensure the safety and precision of these performances: quality sprung floors.

And that’s how our story begins. It’s the magical journey of Disney and O’Mara Sprung Floors, where every leap, every twirl, and every step is backed by the promise of quality and safety.

A Quest for Excellence

It all began five years ago when Disneyland in Anaheim, California sought the perfect flooring for their performers.

EJ O’Mara, co-owner of O’Mara Sprung Floors, recalls how Disney’s pursuit of excellence led them to the O’Mara’s doorstep. “Disney had requested a sample of our sprung flooring. That request turned out to be a decision that marked the beginning of a remarkable partnership,” EJ shared.

Optimizing the Dance Experience

Why sprung floors? Sprung dance floors are the unsung heroes of any performance. These premium floors are designed to provide shock absorption, ensuring that dancers and performers stay safe during demanding routines.

Disney, committed to delivering excellence in every show, recognized the importance of this factor. When they partnered with us, they discovered a solution that not only enhanced the practice experience but also significantly reduced the risk of injuries.

From Dance Practice to Magical Exhibits

In 2017, O’Mara Sprung Floors’ sprung floors graced Disneyland’s main grounds. “These floors weren’t just for practice,” EJ clarified. “They were the foundation on which Disney’s talented dancers perfected their routines.”

But the story didn’t end there. Disney returned with a new challenge in 2019. They needed sprung floors for themed rooms where characters would perform for Disneyland visitors. These elaborate rooms required custom-made, curvy sprung floors.

The O’Mara passion and adaptability shone through as they provided the custom solutions to ensure that the on-site contractor would have a seamless installation process, delivering a premium quality solution that matched Disney’s commitment to excellence.

Customization & Excellence

One key factor in our partnership with Disneyland is the ability to customize our sprung dance floors. Disney’s requirements often go beyond standard rectangular rooms. Thankfully, the talented team at O’Mara Sprung Floors is ready to meet these unique needs.

In some flooring installations, O’Mara Sprung Floors has provided flooring designed to receive polyurea coatings. This significantly enhances the product’s use cases in extreme conditions where the need for extra-grip and ultra-durable finishes is necessary. The adaptability of our company to the various challenges presented by Disney cements their trust in our premium-quality products.

A Growing Partnership

Our partnership with Disney continues to grow. The latest project, an 8,000-square-foot sprung floor in a warehouse space, reflects Disney’s commitment to providing the best working conditions for the team.

In the world of performance, cast members are a valuable investment. The safety and well-being of the performers is paramount. We’re proud to play a crucial role in this equation, contributing to the success of Disney’s shows and performances.

Sprung Floors: A Necessity for Quality

Premium-quality sprung floors are a necessity, not just for Disney but for any performance group or space.

Sprung floors provide the shock absorption that can prevent costly injuries. They protect the cast members who invest time and effort in perfecting their performances, and they ensure that working conditions are optimal for everyone involved. O’Mara Sprung Floors is at the forefront of spreading awareness about the significance of premium sprung flooring.

…And They Danced Happily Ever After

Disney’s journey with us is a testament to the importance of quality and safety in the world of performances. Our top-quality sprung dance floors have not only met but exceeded Disney’s expectations. As a result, this has further solidified their enduring trust in our brand.

Ours is a story where quality, safety, and excellence take center stage. Find out what sets O’Mara Sprung Floors apart from the competition and why Disney chose us for their flooring needs.

I LOVE my O'Mara Maple portable practice panel. It sounds absolutely fantastic and my joints/feet never hurt after using it (like they do when I take class at the studio)! It is a superb dance floor!!

Thanks so much for your excellent customer service, everything went like clockwork! The delivery, packaging, and timing were exceptional! The quality and precision of your products is outstanding, not to mention the fact you include all of the tools needed to install the floor. As a contractor it was difficult to believe that we did not have to make a single cut, everything was numbered and the diagram was spot on, thanks again.

From the moment the floor arrived your meticulous attention to detail was evident. The way it came crated blew me away. Nothing was left to chance, everything was secured and protected. It said a lot without saying a word. Rita called me earlier today after completing her first class..... "The floor made all the difference in the world" was her quote.

I would highly recommend the O’Mara Sprung floor system to anyone. The floor is studio quality, easy to maintain, and beautiful to look at, even after hours of tap dancing.

We are happy with the floor. The shipping was secure and done well. So everything is good. The floor is expensive but you can tell it is higher quality. I am actually using the floor in a 4 by 8 pattern right now since the 8 by 8 was slightly big for my space right now but at least I can expand it when ready. So I love the fact that you can change the size of the floor. Keep up the good work!!

It is perfect for tap dancing. It is well made and high quality. I have practiced or taken lessons in four different studios and until I practiced on this floor I could never really hear the steps clearly and how I was doing them. The sound and clarity of the floor is wonderful for tap dance. You can really “hear” if you are doing the steps right or not.

I’ve been meaning to email and thank you for all of your assistance and support with setting up our floor. We are very happy with it and the dancers like it as well.
