    If I had to give advice to anyone starting, it would be to do your research and seek out support. I was lucky enough to find this forum before I started dancing. I spent like a week pouring over everything before I auditioned. It was so helpful to me. Make sure that you know what you are getting into and make sure you know your rights. I remember the best piece of advice I got from someone on here was something along the lines of:

    "Don't do anything that you aren't comfortable with, even if a custy offers you a lot of Money. If you give an inch they will take a mile. And don't feel bad about it either."

    Hello! I will start dancing officially on this Thursday.I am a bit nervous, but yet I know what I have to offer. Definetly no "extras" over here. I want to be a good exotic dancer, so to speak. Can I just have a rundown possibly of what an entertainer should bring to work? Like perfume, wipes etc? I have been I guess ghost reading and researching this forum, and found alot of useful and helpful tips and tricks. Anything is appreciated. Just trying to prepare for my first day! Nervous- excited. Like a sexy schoolgirl's first day of school Lol

    Here's some basics that you should bring.
    Lock if they have lockers
    Unscented babywipes
    2 pairs of shoes
    2 outfits with extra thongs to change in and out of
    rubbing alcohol and lint free cotton wipes. (you'll want to wipe down with these every hour or so to save you from getting ass and back of the leg pimples)
    bring your own make up
    Hair tools (when your new, girls will not be to keen to share)
    A big enough bag to carry it all in. bring some snack bars too to eat mid shift if you get hungry. The high protein low sugar ones will keep you from bloating. Don't wear any lotion, if get really dry and ashy like me use 100% pure extra virgin coconut oil and put it on at least 2 hours before your shift. It absorbs very fast and wont grease up the pole. If you choose to wear perfume be sure to only wear it behind your ears, back of the knee and in the crease of your elbows. Men don't like going home to their wives smelling like other women. Hope this helps! Anymore question feel free to PM me.

    Thank you soooooo very much Savannah. This helps alot. I figure the first time will be a bit nerve racking, but I hope to find my own groove after a while. I know this is a bit outlandish question Lol I know we are a type of entertainer, in a way creative, maybe performance art if you look at it from a certain angle, but have exotic dancers/Strippers ever used streamers, flags or props to enhance their performance in addition to the pole? Thanks.

    'strippers/exotic dancers' … wow. Don't overthink the job title. No need to be PC here, just call us what we are

    As for streamers, flags … if you're thinking seriously abt this, I would suggest actually going to a club as a customer first to get a better idea of what you're getting into. This isn't like the high school auxiliary dancers that come out at halftime during football games to entertain the crowd, & it's not burlesque.

    Sm feature dancers may use various props & various fancy costumes, but those are girls who have been doing this for a while & have a routine down cold.

    Yeah you're right. I tend to over think things sometimes. I have been to numerous clubs, but I just thought that would add. Wrong thinking. I start tonight as a dancer , and It is what it is. Still trying to learn the ropes. Thanks for being straight with me. We are what we are.

    I really wish I would have found this forum before I'd started dancing. It would have really helped my nerves. Now I'm planning on auditioning for my second club soon. And certainly figuring out where I've been going wrong! Thank y'all so much.

    where can you get pole dancing classes and my biggest issue with this type of dance is the top vid's first 20 seconds on how she moves her butt. Like That's exactly what my friend was trying to teach me. I can't like slowly gradually move like that are there dance classes for that too? Or does it come with the pole dancing?

    Don't bother w/ pole classes unless it's an urban club, & even then. Pole takes major strength so you def don't want to rush it. Save your $$$ & learn pole tricks OTJ/via Youtube + practising at work w/ the physical conditioning you will build up from dancing. Ditto any 'booty/twerk' classes. All of that can be learnt for free while working.

    How do I know if a club is urban or not? I don't get what am I supposed to do while I have the job and know absolutely nothing. I am interested in CH I think I'm going to go next Saturday and check it out. Then apply in the next two weeks.

    you'll do just fine. Make your routine is on point if you decide to use props, I've only ever seen feature dancers use props.

    Don't ever give your I.D. & social security number to another chic, so that she can work at a club. (((Head bang))). It's illegal, and you'll be paying taxes on money that wasn't yours!!

    Just witnessed this stupidity.

    Sold! Although I did see a girl do an entire stage set once "en point", as in prima ballerina. It was erotic and hot.

    Best advice for new girls on stage: SLOW DOWN.

    Don't try to be a rap video girl right from the jump.

    The slower and more controlled your movements are, the more freedom and flexibility you have to change your mind re: your next move as well as the freedom to transition to a new sequence/set of moves.

    Flowwww slowwww & fake it until you make it

    I'm going to agree for the most part with Aniela, but add my own little twist.

    As a former pole fitness instructor, I see tremendous value in taking a couple beginner level classes. If exotic dancing is your career or even your passion, invest in yourself!!

    Learning some basic spins & smooth/controlled ways to transition from the pole to the floor & back can aid in your stage presence & confidence TREMENDOUSLY. Confidence is what draws the money - it really isn't about your "moves."

    For the most part, customers are so enthralled with your body and watching you (admiringly) that you can pretty much do no wrong HOWEVER, I've definitely discovered that having a few basic spins/moves under your belt can quickly build confidence in beginning dancers and give them a trick/move to revert to if their mind goes blank.

    After that, its an lifestyle...the more advanced I got on the pole tricks/stage presentation, I increased my stage show tips as well as the quantity of private dances sold after I exited the stage. I personally found a passion for "pole fitness & even competitions," but that is not the route that many people choose.

    When I found myself starting to spend extra money on the "pole arts," that was when I got may ass back in the club and made sure I was using my skills to line my pockets.

    If you want to work on booty popping/twerking/etc -> the best advice I can give is to get on your knees in front of a full length mirror and start testing things out...warning: you may not leave this mirror for the next 3 weeks lmao.

    Thank you. I do this regularly anyway, but due to some past issues I've had growing up, that really helps. I'm actually looking to do exotic dancing for multiple reasons, but the main one is because I absolutely love to dance.

    A lovely brand new girl tonight came back to our table telling us she did this They are not training you, they're preying on newbies for free kicks.
    So that is not cool for them to ask for a lap dance ever? Is the audition just supposed to be a pole routine?

    Girls ask me all the time to teach them my pole work, but I'm self-taught and hesitant to teach others what I know. I always tell everyone to take a class so that they can be taught by an instructor properly. I tell new girls to not copy me because most of them are wasted and wind up falling off the pole, hitting their heads. So I tell them don't drink. Take classes. They'll learn their own moves too with practice.
