Climb the pole to a pole stand. Grip with your legs and take your body in front of the pole so that your strong arm is closer to the pole. Bend your body forward trapping the pole between your arm and the side of your body. Hold both arms together behind your back. Make sure you have a good grip with your strong leg (which should be behind the pole pressing forward into it.) Take your weaker leg off of the pole and stretch it out behind you. As you do this, tighten your grip with your arms and bend your body forward to get your leg and back in a straight line.
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 .
