Crouch Spin Up (Cradle Ascent): Pole Dance Tutorial


Start by sitting on the floor with your strong side closest to the pole. Place your strong inside arm low on the pole and your weak arm high on the pole. Kneel up on your bent inside leg and place your outside leg on the floor out to the side keeping it straight. Swing your outside leg out to the side and bend it, bringing it up towards your chest. As you swing this outside leg, bring your inside with it. Keep both legs bent with the pole between your legs and chest. Keep spinning. When the spin naturally slows down place both feet on the floor to stand.

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 .
