Teaching is so much more involved than I ever imagined. I absolutely adore pole and wanted to to share that love with others, but in the most professional and safe way possible.

My Dollhouse Certification has helped me achieve just that and I am now successfully working as an instructor! My students feel sexy and safe with me, understanding my instruction with clarity and confidence.

My training with Dollhouse was instrumental in my success and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in teaching pole.”

Traci Hauptman

Traci Hauptman

Owner, The Dollhouse Fitness

Hello, my name is Traci and I am a reformed party girl and sugarholic.

While I have chosen to leave my toxic lifestyle behind, I refuse to live a life that is anything less than indulgent. I am a lover of food, music, animals, dance, sex, nature, travel, heels, and big rugged men that resemble lumberjacks, but not necessarily in that order.

I began my dance journey in 2008. As a bit of a kickboxing-yogi-junkie-tomboy in a corporate, male-dominated career I was drawn to pole dancing as a way to express my feminine side.  One class and I was hooked! Impressed at the amount of athleticism involved and  shocked at how natural exotic movement came to me, I couldn’t get enough. I felt free. I felt liberated. I felt like me.

With a fresh new addiction to a not quite yet emerging industry I sought out the world’s top pole professionals and instructors to train with. Soon after, Dollhouse was born.

As the founder of the first pole studio in the area, It’s been exciting to lead the way for the local pole community by creating unique and innovative programs, producing celebrated shows, and collaborating with world-renowned pole and aerial artists to bring the hottest moves and best instruction to San Diego, all while implementing the latest industry safety practices and procedures.

My biggest accomplishment is the thriving sisterhood of supportive women that my space and philosophy has attracted. I am inspired daily by the diverse group of beauties that dance with me. Watching them grow as dancers, acrobats, and friends melts my heart. My clients are open-hearted empowered bad asses who allow little ole moi to unlock, embrace, and embody the sexy goddesses they really are. Meow.
