Stand facing the pole. Place your strong arm low on the pole with your fingers pointing closer to the ground. Place your weak arm high on the pole around head height with your fingers on the furthest side of the pole. Stand on your strong inside leg and swing your weak leg up towards the pole. Bend this knee around the pole and up towards your chest. You should aim to get your body in a ball shape around the pole so that your strong side is closest to the ground. Jump off the ground with your strong leg and bring this leg up to meet your weak leg. Continue spinning.
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 .
