Place your strong arm high on the pole and walk around. Step your inside foot on the ground whilst placing your outside arm across your chest and onto the pole. Kick your outside leg out and around the pole keeping it straight. Place the inside part of your outside leg on to the pole with your knee bent at a 90 degree angle. Hop off the ground with your other foot and bring it to the pole to mirror your other leg. Your legs should be either side of the pole with the fleshier part of your thigh on the pole.
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 .
