Our Story

Tiffany Russell founded Spartan Dance Center with the goal creating a modern dance studio to fit the people of Lansing-area’s busy schedules and hectic lives. In the summer of 2010, Tiffany’s dream became a reality when she set-up shop in the heart of downtown East Lansing. Joined by an equally talented, young stuff, Tiffany was ready to give the public the opportunity to keep dancing, stay fit and have fun.

Spartan Dance Center’s pilot studio on Ann Street built a client-base for six months then moved a few blocks north in January 2011 for more space and parking for its customers. With the move, SDC expand to have its own retail area for the local community called Spartan Boutique.  In 2014, Spartan Fit Center opened its doors becoming the third component to the business.  In 2016, Spartan Dance & Fit Center opened its doors to its new location at 6075 N. Hagadorn where it now offers services in both dance, fitness, massage, retail and Spartan cafe!
