Stand with your strong side closest to the pole. Go into a basic invert with your hands still on the pole. Slide your strong leg down the pole and towards your body by bending it at the knee. Keep contact with the pole as you do this. Straighten your strong leg out so that it is parallel to the floor and your upper inside thigh is on the pole. Place your strong arm over the pole and grip with your armpit and side. Bring your weak leg down and straighten it out opposite your strong leg so they are in a V shape. Take your weak arm off the pole and straighten it out opposite your strong arm so they are also in a V shape. Hold the pose.
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 .
