If you want to know about money potential, ask if the club has money pontential.

    THANK YOU! i never talk about money to the girls there i think its rude and unclassy and just asking to be robbed, and there is this one girl at my club i don't know in the least who always comes up and tells us all just how much she's earned like she wants a fucking sticker. god its annoying

    The dressing room may seem like a good place to vent or share, but keep in mind that anything you say back there can and will be repeated in front of customers by other dancers (even your "friends" - some otherwise cool dancers seem to lack common sense and filters). Any and everything- no matter how small, seemingly unimportant, or foolish.

    It is important not to get drunk before or during work. If you are professional and never drunk you will be respected by management. You are not a cocktail waitress or a bartender. You are not there to sell or drink alchohol. You are there to make money by entertaining the customers. You are in the lap dance sales business. If you would rather sell alchohol, then you can apply for a job as a cocktail waitress or bartender. You don't have to be a stripper. If a guy wants you to get drunk with him beware. There is a reason for that and it's not a good one. Guys who want to buy you drinks will try to take advantage of you. They want your defenses to be slow; which is the ONLY REASON that they are offering to buy you a drink. Don't be afraid to say you make your money doing lap dances not drinking.

    A lot of girls will threaten violence... if a bitch does this I will beat her ass. They are trying to act tough and they do have a lot of anger issues. You don't have to let their unprofessional bitterness make you feel scared. Most of those girls are just angry because they are not doing well and they are scared because they don't know how to do their job. They don't have the common sense to seek guidance and they want other girls to feel scared too. Don't. If you are professional you will be able to talk to managment in a logical manner by stating the facts and they will handle it.

    In some clubs dancers may get a commission for selling drinks, or they may also double as waitresses and/or bartenders (there was a club I worked at that one of the day shift bartenders would also double as a dancer).

    It's not true that guys only buy you drinks in order to take advantage of you. Buying a woman a drink is an important aspect of the social interaction between a man and a woman. Try not to turn down drinks.. order SOMETHING, even if it's only a coke. He's trying to show interest, and your drink refusal could trigger feelings of rejection.

    Also, you'll get on managers good side by selling bottles a lot quicker than you will by being 100% sober all the time. You're there to make money for yourself, yes, but also for the club so selling alcohol and bottles is a major plus. When it comes time to introduce girls to the table of spenders, who do you think the managers are going to take over - the "sober" girl or the girl that's going to sell bottles?

    Sell, but you don't have to drink it if you wanna stay sober.

    I don't think a man is trying to take advantage if he offers a drink. If he's pushing multiple shots, maybe.

    Depending on the club you work in, selling bottles gives you free house fees/credit.

    Don't be afraid to let custys know this by your actions and attitudes. You need to show that you are worth their money by not doing anything for free. You are not working to get a dinner date with a customer who thinks you are sexy; you are working for cash- because you are sexy. You are not working for drinks, you are working for cash- because you are too sexy to be shy. You are not working for complements, you are working for cash- because you already know that you are sexy. If you work in a topless club don't walk around topless for free. If they ask for free peeks of anything; state the prices with confidence, then say let me know when you are ready and simply walk away with a smile. When you have the confidence to say, these are the prices, let me know when know when you are ready; there is no need to lecture or get mad. Just smile and move on. Because once you have displayed that you have the confidence to acheive your goal of making money, the money will come.

    I have worked in clubs where dancers can order virgin drinks that sound like they are alchohol. I have also put drinks up to my mouth to "fake drink" and just gradually dumped them. I would rather not put my focus on selling drinks anyways; with or with out alchohol. I find that I make more consistent $$ when I am focused on selling dances. Everyone is different. I guess it depends on the individual and the club.

    You do not need a passport to travel within the United States or territories under control of the United States. (This was brought on because a n00b at work inquired about passport 'requirements' for a trip to Miami)

    The dressing room may seem like a good place to vent or share, but keep in mind that anything you say back there can and will be repeated in front of customers by other dancers (even your "friends" - some otherwise cool dancers seem to lack common sense and filters). Any and everything- no matter how small, seemingly unimportant, or foolish.

    This. I have seen this happen a few times. In one of the clubs I've worked, I met a sweet dancer who wasn't unintelligent, but a bit ditsy. Whenever she came in to work, she would have a couple of drinks to loosen up. On more than one occasion she had accidentally slipped private information about other dancers (usually their first real name) to either a customer or to another dancer. One day we were talking about menial things in the dressing room, when she asked me: "Oh, do you know [real first name]?" "Who?" "Oh! I meant [stage name]. I hate it when girls tell me their real names."


    So just be careful about revealing your information, especially when alcohol is involved. Its good to have the same lie for everything (fake first name, fake city you live in, fake day job, etc). When you talk to customers as well, they usually end up asking the same questions over and over again so it becomes kind of like a script.

    Yeah be careful who you trust, even if you've known them for years. I had some overly friendly Chatty Cathy try to tell me her real name and ask for mine. "I don't want to know your real name so shut the fuck up and I am sure as hell not going to tell you mine" is my response unless I have known them awhile.

    Ladies do you have to get a license for every city that you dance in or can you just get one for the state that you live in an travel with it. I'm in the process of trying to find a club but I don't want to dance in my hometown. So I thinking about traveling, (3hrs max lol) an that's if the $$$ s rite. And also do you guys think it is smart to call ahead an try to schedule an audition? I mean if I'm traveling I at lease want to be able to talk with management. But everytime I call clubs girls are rude or the line is busy. I just want wana do this right. An need some advice. I was also thinking that Memphis would be a good place to start. Do you guys know any clubs that like Black girls.. i dont kind white ppl but i dont wanna waist my time either if they aint tippin. Also if you ladies know any cities that you can make a lot of money in in the south. List some.. I know atl an memphis an miami so name others please. Also are pole dancing classes a good idea. I thinking yes I could aleast know a couple tricks twirls or something?. Sorry about all the questions lol.

    Sometimes I'm glad I don't do pole work especially where showing the kitty is compulsory, not optional like Al's in Reading.

    Do I look like I have "Taxi Service" tattooed on me somewhere? If you have a way to the club you better have a way from the club because it sure as hell isn't my fucking responsibility to chauffeur around someone who didn't make preparations beforehand. I've got more important things do deal with and someone's lack of transportation isn't my problem. Get your own damn rides. If I offer is one thing. Begging complete strangers is another.

    Im new here and I havent started dancing yet, and I know this post is old as hell, but I dont like being greasy for the whole damn day either. I make sure I put my moisturizer on very early in the day. Also, I feel like exfoliating and getting frequent massages could help with not having to put on lotion all the time.

    Look for something really thick and make sure you rub it in real good.

    Rub it iiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiin girl!

    Is there a thread for answers to tricky customer questions? Like, how to deflect when guys ask for your number, or turn conversations away from certain topics?

    I feel like I've messed up a few times in the last month when I could have made money off of a guy but I didn't have the right answer ready.

    I am going to audition soon - my only worry is that I might trip in my 6-inch platform heels because I am not that experienced yet. If I do everything else right, would I blow my chances if I trip during the audition?

    Even the most super-sober veterans trip once in a while. I think even if you do trip (assuming it is bc you weren't tanked up!) the more important thing would be how you recover from it. I have tripped onstage a bunch of times bc I am just clumsy, I just make light of it & keep right on going. If you can laugh it off &/or continue the flow so the stumble does not seem too noticeable, you will be fine.
