Stand facing the pole and go into a Pole Climb. Go straight into a Peter Pan. With your body lent over the front of the pole place your strong inside arm high on the pole. Hold onto your strong leg near the shin with your weak arm and pull this leg towards the pole to help your grip. Take your weak leg away from your strong leg and swing it down to the ground and then straight out behind you. The aim is to have your legs in a straight line parallel to the floor.
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 .
