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. Cross your outside leg over the front of the pole so your calf is in contact with the pole. Hop off the ground with your other foot and bring it to the back of the pole crossed over in the opposite direction to your other leg so that your shin is in contact with the pole. Hold this pose and 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 .
