Earth, an alluring enigma, is balanced in the void of space upon two poles over which it sensuously spins and ineffably shimmies.

Certified instructors at Sumara Pole Fitness and Dance Center, formerly known as Sexy Silhouettes by Sara, instill students of any shape and experience level with alluring moves and sensual self-confidence via pole-dancing classes. Pupils cast off inhibitions and glean dance basics in the Intro to Pole Fitness class, in which an experienced undulator teaches the basic walk, fireman spin, and classic poses to kindle self-confidence and ensure a racier experience at future capture-the-flag tournaments. The level 1 course steps up the seduction as students cultivate upper-body strength and powerful core muscles by gripping the pole with their inner thighs, knees, arms, and prehensile tails while honing spinning and climbing skills. Open pole jams encourage recently trained students to show off their skills and make new friends in a social hour full of dance demonstrations, instructional videos, and invigorating tunes. For every class, students should be sure to wear comfortable clothing and rubber-soled shoes and avoid oils, lotion, and jewelry.
L.L.H. Fitness and Dance Studio
An apparent portmanteau of the founders’ names, L.L.H. Fitness and Dance Studio blends the talents of Summer and Sara into a signature teaching method designed to help ladies of all shapes, sizes, ages, and skill levels excel at pole fitness. The duo recognized that most classes were led by instructors with experience in the club, not the gym, so they worked together to forge an approach that combines elements of traditional pole dancing, yoga, martial arts, and parkour to melt away calories while students twirl and dance in an upbeat atmosphere.
In a studio that topped the San Diego A-List’s 2010 and 2011 polls for Best Dance Studio, certified instructors lead beginner- and advanced-level classes, covering subjects such as full dance routines, fireman spins, and telephone-repairman wiretaps. Floor lamps illuminate students as they climb any of the 10 chrome X-Pert poles. The studio's two stages showcase performers, and a private instruction room abets one-on-one lessons.
