Melissa was born and raised in Toronto and has been a member of Toronto’s pole dancing community for nearly a decade. Her diverse background includes several years of dance (ballet and jazz), gymnastics training and three university degrees (Political Science, Marketing and Education).
While pole dancing has only been practiced as a form of fitness and sport for a short while, Melissa was swinging on poles in the playground and on the subway since she was a kid. Her style of teaching can described as a combination of fun, sass and tough love. Melissa has trained with world class pole stars from around the world and is certified to teach all levels of pole, pole conditioning and aerial fitness.
When Melissa isn't teaching classes, you can find her sitting behind the desk as the Queen West studio manager. She has a true passion when it comes to teaching and hopes to share that with everyone.
