Who are you, and why do you support O’Mara Sprung Floors?
I am Ava Spagnuolo, a 17 year old tap dancer from New Jersey. As a newborn, I was introduced into the dance world because of my older siblings. I started dance at each two and I don’t plan to stop. Dance has always been a big part of my life, but tap dance has been one of my favorite escapes. Within the past few years, I have received many injuries. After this, I knew I needed to equip myself with the best tools. O’Mara floors give the best sounds and also provide a strong supportive board.
What do you love?
I love so many things, but my top three would have to be family, friends, and dance. Ever since I was young, my mom has embraced me in such positive environments. All of my family and friends have been nothing but supportive which has helped me get to where I am today. Lastly, dance has been the root to all my happiness for years. It has given me a place to meet my best friends and biggest inspirations, as well as teaching me how to express myself.
Why do you dance?
I dance because it makes me happy. Tap dance specifically allows me to let go, and spread my story with all the different opportunities. When I’m having a good day, it makes my day brighter and when I’m having a bad day, it allows me to release all the stress.
Why do you choose to dance on O’Mara Sprung Floors?
I choose O’Mara because I strive to always be heard. O’Mara boards make my taps have such great clarity, so even an ordinary person could understand my message.
How would you like the world to know you?
I want people to know me as a strong, empowering soul, who loves dancing and making everyone else live life to the fullest. Throughout the years, dance has helped shape me into the person I am today; without it, I would be a completely different person. I hope that my dedication helps inspires other to tap dance.
