Our Story

A Thank you from our Founder

It was 2004 when the vision for the first prototype of Rac n Roll was established. My daughter was in dance and I struggled to keep all her costumes organized and transported safely to each of her competitions. 
I designed the dance bag out of necessity and it truly simplified and enhanced both our experiences allowing us to focus on her actual performances. I knew this was a need and not a want. Rac n Roll has been a gift to me. Now 17 years on, it's my time to pass the (Rac) to my two children, Thomas and Lauren. The name and the brand will stay the same.
It's time to retire. I would personally like to thank all my loyal customers and their recommendations throughout the years. We couldn't have done it without you.

A Message from our Director

Hi Everyone, Thank you for stopping by! My name is Lauren Middup and I am the new director of Rac n Roll! Growing up I started dance at a young age and quickly found my passion and love for the arts. This led me to some amazing opportunities along with joining the wonderful world of competitive dance and later becoming a dance teacher myself. I officially started working with Rac n Roll back in 2016 although I may argue that I have been apart of it since the very beginning and I have the OG model shots to prove it! My hope for Rac n Roll is to carry on the amazing legacy that my mother began while maintaining our exceptional customer service, ability to give back when possible and to continue to help grow this spectacular community we are all apart of, while allowing these dancers to become self-sufficient and independent young adults. 

Giving back is important to us

Community is our foundation and we strive to continue to find ways to give back.All unsaleable Rac N Roll bags are donated to charities, including Yellow Brick House, Rose of Sharon, United Way and 360Kids. We have also helped support
