Climb the pole to a pole sit. Using your hands for grip straighten both legs out, parallel to the floor. Cross your strong leg over the top of your weaker leg at the ankles and feet. Grip tightly. When you have a good grip, take your hands off the pole. Lean back from the pole until you are leaning as far back as you can go. While upside down push your hands down to the ground and then on the pole by your head. Push with your arms to make them as straight as possible and to arch your back. At the same time move your feet lower so that your legs are as parallel to the ground as possible.
Pole Dance Instructor & PoleFreaks Founder
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 4 advanced personal trainer and an ambassador for Dragonfly pole wear, and also writes regularly for the Dragonfly blog .
