Climb the pole – although not too high. Grip with your legs from your knees to your feet. Take the top half of your body over the front of the pole so that your strong side is closest to the pole and place your weak arm high and the pole. Place your strong arm low on the pole. Take your weak leg off the pole and take it up behind you towards the ceiling. At the same time take your weak arm off and around the pole and reach back to hold your foot at the ankle. You should now be gripping by your armpit. When you have a good grip take your strong arm off the pole and reach it out in front of you. Hold the 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 .
