Climb the pole as if going into a pole sit. Holding the pole with both hands, lift your body up and place both legs straight out in front of you, parallel to the floor. Cross your strong foot over your weak foot. Grip on to the pole with your thighs, keeping your grip strong through your legs. Keep your strong arm high on the pole and place your weak arm low on the pole just under your body. Unhook your legs from each and turn your body towards your weak side. Keep a good grip on the pole with your upper thighs. Keep your weak leg pointed out in front of you and bend your strong leg behind 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 .
