Melissa is not only a dance teacher; she is a businesswoman. A recent graduate of Seton Hill University, Melissa worked diligently to attain a degree in Business Administration with specializations in Marketing and Human Resources. Therefore, she created this brand as a culmination of her passion for dance as well as her skills in business.

Owner’s Origins: The name MP Athletics in a combination of Melissa’s first name and her iconic nickname “Pookie.” For years some people only knew Melissa as Pookie and had absolutely no idea that her real name was actually Melissa. Still to this day her family, friends and students all refer to her as Pookie. In fact, most people think Pookie is her last name due to her identity on social media. However, Pookie is a nickname that has been embedded as part of her identity since she was just a baby.
