Our Story

Megan has wanted to open a dance and fitness apparel store for the past 5 years, and with Bottoms Up announcing their closing, she decided it was her time. She has been blessed to work with some amazing people, including Bottoms Up, to get herself off the ground and running. She is so excited to provide Lansing with a storefront to fulfill the dance and fitness needs of the area. Come on in to see what we mean!
