Who are you, and why do you support O’Mara Sprung Floors?
I am Bella The Tapper. I am just 14 years old and I have a huge passion for tap dance. I grew up dancing my whole life and am still continuing today. Dance has always been a big part of my life, but tap dance is where my heart resides. Tap is something so powerful that can give off such an amazing message. I support O’Mara Sprung Floors because they are simply just the greatest floor to be heard on. I have been tap dancing for 9 years, and without tap I would not have made it as far as I have come. Tap stands out among others styles of dance because not only can it be seen, it can be heard. Being an ambassador for O’Mara Sprung Floors has truly taught me that it is all about having the right tools. When I am dancing on my O’Mara floor, I know there will not be any problem with sounds being heard. Along with that, I am a part of Team Capezio being a sponsored dancer for Capezio. I am also an ambassador for Dream Duffel. Being an ambassador for various companies has taught me loyalty and responsibility not only as a dancer but as a human being. Dance has always been there for me and it will continue to be my biggest love in my life.
What do you love?
I love dance. Especially tap dance. A fun fact is I started dance at age 2 but I did not start tap until age 5. The reason is because I felt as if tap was “too loud”. Looking back on that memory makes me really glad that I made the decision to start tap because tap has really made me who I am today. I would be a completely different person without it.
Why do you dance?
I dance because it makes me feel good. Tap is my escape and I can tell my own story and create my own rhythms with it. I can just let go and have fun and not worry about anything else.
Why do you choose to dance on O’Mara Sprung Floors?
I choose to dance on O’Mara Sprung floors because they make me sharp any day of the week. My tap sounds are loud, crisp, and clear. Easily being heard makes the job of a tap dancer easier since tap is typically underestimated. So having a great floor under you is really a great benefit.
How would you like the world to know you?
I want the word to know me as Bella the Tapper. I created a name for myself when I was younger and it just stuck. I want it to continue on to be what people know me as. The girl who LOVES tap no matter what.
