Climb the pole and grip with your legs from the knees down. Take the top half of your body over the front of the pole. Make sure that your strong side is closest to the pole. Take your strong arm behind you so that the pole is gripped near the armpit. Reach back with this arm as you bring your strong leg up behind you, towards the ceiling. Grab this leg by the ankle. When you feel like you have a good grip take your weak leg off the pole and take your weak arm behind you to hold this leg at the ankle. 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 .
