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 .

Things I’ve Learnt About Pole

Things I’ve Learnt About Pole
For many different reasons, this has been a very difficult year for me. With regards to pole… I just gave up. I got to about September and for one reason or another, I just couldn’t handle being around pole. I wanted to give up. I couldn’t handle watching it, or talking about it. 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.

‘Flying Through Pregnancy’ – Book Review

‘Flying Through Pregnancy’ – Book Review
When it comes to pole, aerial and pregnancy, very few people put themselves out there giving specific, real, actionable advice. People are happy to tell of their own experiences rather than telling others what to do – and for good reason too. Some of my friends have quit pole as soon as they became pregnant, others I’ve not let pole in class, and then some have continued to pole for as...
