Place your strong inside arm high on the pole and your weak arm across your chest and on the pole. As you walk around the pole step on your outside foot. Swivel your body away from the pole on this outside foot and bring your inside leg out to the side. Take this leg behind you and bend it at the knee at a 90 degree angle. Hop off the ground with your other foot and bring it up so that your legs are at 90 degree angles from each other and 90 degree angles at the knee. Hold the pose as you spin backwards.
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 .
