Every Piece is Made with Purpose

MP Athletics wants to empower dancers. The best way to do this is to first understand that dancers are more than just their sport. They are students, entrepreneurs, friends, and so much more. Every element of their personalities need to come together to make them the best dancers and people.

Keeping this in mind, all MP Athletics pieces are black. To us, the color black represents every color coming together to create one dynamic force. These all black pieces can be worn in class, at conventions, and even on stage at competitions… wherever dancers can be found expressing themselves.

While browsing our site, you will also see that all of our pieces have names. Each piece pays tribute to a woman who has inspired the MP Athletics team. We believe in honoring the complex, powerful women that dominate in both dance and life.

About Us

MP combines the two names of our founder: Melissa and Pookie. In the classroom and in business meetings, she goes by her real name: Melissa. When out with friends or on the dance floor, she is known by her childhood nickname: Pookie. She is the queen of balancing and celebrating multiple elements of her personality, and she has worked that into the ethos of MP Athletics.

Growing up as a dancer, taught Melissa that athletic women are power houses, who are way more than just their sport or craft. She learned that whether you are perfecting your latest dance routine or running errands to throw a to die for theme party, you need to look good while doing it. This is why all of MP Athletic’s pieces are classic, fierce, and all black.
