Finding Joy & Breaking through Social Constructs with Dance & Movement: Interview with Sarah Lucille and Melanie Piek
Learn more about Melanie Piek:
Melanie Piek founded Vertical Fusion in 2012, a pole and aerial dance studio in Colorado. Melanie’s passion is pole dance and her mission is to share it with others through teaching and performing. Melanie initially got into pole dance as a result of seeking out a new and more exciting workout program. After taking her first class, she was hooked and opened her first studio two years later. Melanie started the business because she wanted to share this fitness program with others, knowing how effective it was for getting stronger and more fit. What she didn’t realize is how much it would change her and her clients beyond the physical. Now eight years later, she has had the privilege of bearing witness and having a role in the incredible transformations that her staff and clients have undergone over the years. Through this form of dance, people find a great fitness program but what keeps them immersed in it is the transformation and the community. Many people claim it has healed them emotionally and spiritually, gave them confidence, independence, and a better perspective of just how amazing they are. Melanie has experienced her own healing and transformation. As a domestic violence, eating disorder, and body dysmorphic disorder survivor, Melanie has come to heal past wounds, become healthier and more confident, and instrumental in helping others make progress in healing and growing from similar trauma and challenges through movement. On a more personal note, Melanie has been happily married to Joe since 2006, she is the mother of four, ages 11, 20, 24, and 26, and grandmother of two, ages 4 and 8 months.
