Split Heel Pose: Pole Dance Tutorial


Hold on to the pole as you step your outside foot onto the base of the pole. Place both hands on the pole at chest height. Push into the pole with your outside foot and pull with your arms as you lower your head and simultaneously lift your inside foot towards the ceiling. Keep your inside knee close to the pole to the extend your leg fully, hooking the inside heel over the top of the pole. Keep both legs straight.

You do not need to be able to do the box splits to get this move, but working on your flexibility can make it a lot easier. Try this move from the floor before trying higher up the pole.

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 .
