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.
