Stand with your strong side closest to the pole as if going into a basic invert. As you invert, hook your strong leg over the pole at the knee. Keep your weak arm low on the pole as you bring your body up. Place your strong arm high on the pole just above your strong knee. Keep your weak leg straight as you straighten out your strong leg so that your legs are in a V shape. Bring your body slightly away from the pole and hold this pose.
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 .
