As a certified pole studio, A Sensual You actuates expertise to curate a comfortable, discreet environment in which women can ditch their inhibitions and learn to pole dance. Pole-dancing classes tone the arms, abs, and legs, boost flexibility and strength, and prepare women to rescue kittens stranded atop the Space Needle. Introductory pole instructors demonstrate proper grip techniques, saunters, and basic choreography, preparing dancers for the inversions, spins, and climbs of upper-level sessions. Fitness-focused classes such as Pop, Clap, N Pole and Cardio Crunk teach students dance-cardio moves inspired by high-energy steps from music videos and hip-hop. Ameliorating strength, flexibility, and gravity-affected spots take priority in other classes on the studio’s schedule, including Vertifit and upside-down physics.
Pole-dancing parties corral up to 12 ladies for a private lesson. The Girls’ Night Out party stands as the studio’s most popular option for women celebrating birthdays, bachelorette parties, or the 20th anniversary of having their braces removed. Over the course of a one-hour fiesta, instructors cover a trio of choreography styles as chosen by the party crowd. The saucy subject matter may include pole dancing, floor work, striptease, booty blast, wall work, lap dancing, chair dancing, or square dancing with a chair tied to your torso.
A Sensual You
Sultry, but stripped of any carnal stigmas, the pole dancing classes at A Sensual You turn self-confidence, suggestive movement, and physical fitness into perfect bedfellows. Under the guidance of one of Philly's sole master pole instructors, students of all shapes, sizes, and skill levels perform exercises that share the philosophies of yoga and Pilates, yet have a decidedly wilder side. In addition to the pole classes, the syllabus includes sessions that focus on achieving perfect abs, firmed posteriors, and the natural wonder that is "Angela Basset's Arms."
A Sensual You also taps into the cultural zeitgeist known as twerking. As Philadelphia's only educational harbor for the dance craze, the studio teaches students how to make waves the next time they perform at an awards show or want to spice up an ATM line.
