Professional dancer Tiffany Russell's early career saw her gliding across some of the world's most prestigious stages, winning applause with her nimble footwork in productions of My Fair Lady, Guys and Dolls, and The Wizard of Oz. When Tiffany and her family settled in Lansing, she had trouble finding a dance studio with the scheduling flexibility she needed as a parent and the challenge she craved as an artist who trained with the Russian Ballet Academy and the Broadway Dance Center.
She subsequently founded Spartan dance and Fit Center in 2010, where adults with hectic work schedules can shimmy in anytime for drop-in ballroom classes, and kids can find plenty of opportunity to study pirouettes and greco-roman swan wrestling in after-school ballet classes. The center's esteemed chorus line of dance teachers is well-versed in a multitude of performance styles, enabling wide-ranging instruction in dance varieties that include hip-hop, contemporary, and lyrical.

Owner Heather Fray draws from years of experience selling music in Lansing to stock The Record Lounge's shelves with quality vinyl from both famous and Michigan-area artists. New LPs ($12–$25) slide onto turntables to hum out fresh tunes, and a pre-owned selection ($5+ each) hides recordings that could complete an audiophile's collection or could shrink in the dryer to fit in CD players. Visitors can sift through bins filled with $0.50 and $1 titles to fill up empty shelves, or seek out vintage stereo equipment to repair malfunctioning decks. Slip into a band T-shirt ($16–$18) to show support for groups such as The Beatles and Rush, or don a Record Lounge business tee ($15), which grants its owner a 10% discount when worn on future visits. Painted records cover the interior with colorful portholes; one wall is devoted to music of yore, with posters from local shows, classic images of Michigan acts from the ’70s, and daguerreotypes of Orville Gibson smashing his first guitar.
