Vertical Fusion was founded in 2011 by Melanie Piek after taking pole dance classes and falling head over heels in love with it. Melanie initially sought out pole dancing as an alternative fitness program and quickly discovered that it was way more than that. After experiencing personal transformation, both physically and mentally, she was compelled to share it with others. Since opening her first studio, Melanie has reignited her passion for movement, rediscovered her identity as a strong and empowered person, healed past wounds from abusive relationships, and liberated the most expressive and colorful side of her spirit. Now Melanie dedicates every day of her life, creating a space where other people can experience their own transformations. One of the things Melanie loves most about her job as an instructor and the Vertical Fusion studio is hearing these words from her clients… “Thank you…this has changed my life.”
