How to do the Butterfly pole move
The Butterfly is one of the first few moves most pole dancers learn once they’ve mastered their basic invert. There are lots of different ways to get into your Butterfly, as shown in the video below!
Here’s a step-by-step guide for how to get into your Butterfly from a basic invert:
- Stand with your strong side closest to the pole
- Go into a basic invert (learn how here) making sure you hook your weak leg over the front of the pole
- Keep your weak arm where it is on the pole and move your strong arm low on the pole, keeping it straight
- Keep your weak leg hooked over the pole as you take your strong leg off the pole and place it behind you, away from the pole
- Hold this Butterfly pose
There are many different entries, as well as arm and hand grips so make sure to use the most appropriate for yourself.
Happy poling x
