1. The Wrap-Around Move
Start at the back of the pole, with your foot close to the base. Use your strong hand to grab the pole at about head height. Allow your arm to straighten, so your weight is hanging away from the pole. Keeping your outside leg straight, swing it out to the side and step all the way around the pole, pivoting on your inside foot at the same time. Allow your knee to bend slightly as you turn and hook with your leg. To finish off, arch your body backwards, lowering your hand to allow for a deeper arch. Straighten back up and swing your leg down from the pole, ready to step into the next move.
