Go into a Basic Invert on the pole and get your body straight – or go into a Crucifix. Take your inside hand off the pole and place it back on near your face – fingers low to the ground. Push up into the pole to get your torso higher. Start to slide your legs down the pole keeping a grip behind your outside knee. Keep a secure grip with your outside knee as you reach up and place your outside hand on the pole higher than your outside knee, thumb to the ceiling. Pull up as you then reach up and place your inside hand higher on the pole, underneath your outside hand. Pull up as you release your legs off of the pole and get your body straight. From here you can go into a seat or another move or your choice.
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 .
