Stand with your strong side closest to the pole. Lift your strong leg up and bend it high over the pole so that you can grip the pole behind your knee. Holding on to the pole with your hands and gripping with your strong leg, lift up your weaker leg and bend it so that the pole is resting close to your lower knee and shin. Place your weaker foot over the front of your strong front. Push your hips forward and allow your legs to slide down slowly to give you a better grip.
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 .
