Stand facing the pole. Bend towards the pole so that you can place your stronger arm over the pole and grip with your armpit. Place your weaker hand lower on the pole. Slightly dig this lower elbow into your side. Lift your strong leg out to the side, keeping it straight. Using your arms and tensing your abs, lift up your weaker leg so that both legs are straight out to the side.
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 .
