Carousel Spin: Pole Dance Tutorial


Place your strong hand high on the pole and your weaker hand about level with your hips. Walk around the pole. Keep your inside foot on the floor and swing your outside leg out, keeping it low. Bend your leg at the knee keeping it behind your body. Turn your body in to face the pole as you bring your inside leg off the ground. Bend your inside leg behind your body and try to put your feet together. These moves happen in very quick succession.

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 .
