Place your strong inside arm high on the pole. Walk around the pole as you place your weaker arm across your chest and on the pole. Stand on your weaker foot as you swing your strong foot up and hook it low over the pole at the knee. Use this momentum to push you forward. Slightly jump off your weaker foot to lift it off the ground and swing it out to the side, keeping it straight. As you spin this leg will naturally end up coming in next to your strong leg to land with both feet on the ground.
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 .
