About Holly Munson

Holly started pole dancing after admiring the grace, skill and elegance of pole performances and immediately falling in love with the style. After half a decade of bruises, struggling and then the satisfaction of success, her own pole school Firefly Poles was born. The vision is to share that same passion with others.

Holly wished that there was more Pole Dancing help available when I was learning, so now she aims to provide that help through writing, blogging and teaching here on PoleFreaks.

Holly is also a Level 3 Personal Trainer and an ambassador for Dragonfly pole wear, and also writes regularly for the Dragonfly blog .

I turned off all the groups on social media, I set up new accounts that had nothing to do with pole. I even had to...

Teaching Children vs Teaching Adults for Pole and Aerial Fitness

Teaching Children vs Teaching Adults for Pole and Aerial Fitness
In the past I’ve had a lot of requests to teach children – currently ranging from 8 upwards. So far they’ve all wanted to learn pole specifically. Sometimes the parents want to learn with them, other times it’s just the child wanting to participate. My main hesitation was that I had no idea how to teach children. My experience goes as far as being the fun cousin aka the person who gives...
