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 become a competitive pole dancer, earning the following titles/qualifications:

  • 2013 & 2014 Colorado Pole Championship Master Division 1st Place Winner
  • 2015 PSO Masters Division Drama 1st Place Winner
  • 2015 PSO Master Division Entertainment 2nd Place Winner
  • Qualified for the 2016 NAPDC Women's Elite Pro Division
