Climb the pole to a pole sit, crossing your top, strong leg over the top of your weaker leg. While holding the pole bring your crossed leg towards the pole, keeping the tension and contact with your other leg. Straighten your weaker leg, pointing your toes. When your top knee is on the pole and you have a good grip, you can let go with your hands and lean your body back, away from the pole.
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 .
