Ten Pole Inverts to Master for Stronger Upside Down Tricks!

Published by:


I want to share my favourite basic upside down pole moves with you all.

When I say “basic”, what I really mean is that these are the initial inverts I teach when people are going upside down on the pole for the first time. Of course there are tons of other moves I teach in between as well!

If you’re still working on getting upside down on the pole, check out my invert prep video.

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.
