Go to invert on the pole. Hook your outside leg over the pole. Take your hands off the pole, so that you have a good grip with your legs. Take your inside leg around the pole and towards your head. Pull this leg towards you with the opposite (outside) arm. Place your inside arm on your bum so that you can grip the pole with this arm. Straighten your other leg so that you are in the splits position. Aim to take your inside arm off of the pole and point it towards your feet.
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 .
