Pencil Spin: Pole Dance Tutorial


Stand with your strongest side closest to the pole. Place your strong arm high on the pole. Walk around the pole. As you walk, swivel on your inside foot as you place your weak hand on the pole just above head height. Slightly jump off the ground and use your arms to pull your body up. Keep your body off the floor in a straight line. Hold this pose.

The pencil spin is best on a spinning pole as your momentum from jumping off the group will keep you spinning.

About Holly Munson

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 3 Personal Trainer and an ambassador for Dragonfly pole wear, and also writes regularly for the Dragonfly blog .
