About Us

Our Story
Dance mom Becky Condello left her 25 year career in the investment and insurance industry after recognizing a need for a local dance shoppe. There was nothing locally available to support the large number of dance studios, gyms, theaters and church groups in the suburban Philadelphia area. In 2003, Becky opened Motions Dance & Fitness Shoppe in a 900 square foot space in the heart of Drexel Hill.     

Operating a "one person" business soon became difficult, so Becky persuaded her friend Nancy and daughter Rachel to come help with what was quickly becoming a bustling business. While always keeping an eye out for bigger space, they decided to open a second location in Ridley Township, Delaware County in 2007.

After 13 years of fond memories at their original location, they happened upon 3000 square feet at 5050 Fairway Road and fell in love with the tall windows and expansive retail space. Although they sadly had to consolidate the two smaller stores; they are thrilled to be able to showcase their wares in this lovely space.
