I am from NYC but moved to Vegas...I dance in Vegas so I am not new to dancing. I come to NYC for weeks at a time to visit friends and family and I just started considering making money while I am here.
I have a fixed budget every time I visit and I understand that I am looking at $300 to start dancing (house fees, transportation, whatever else pops up) and as someone who isn't working, that is a chunk of change. Something else to consider, that it is January, usually a slower time for dancing I hear for NYC.
I also stupidly left my ss card at home in Vegas, so I have to go out my way to get a temporary one at the SS office. I am wondering if the clubs would accept it. Over the phone, clubs tend to be encouraging "Yes we are hiring! Yes, yes, yes..." then in person "Sorry we aren't hiring.." so I would like to hear from those who have experience with NYC. Most threads that I have searched aren't up to date.
My question is, should I just stay home and enjoy my strict budget? lol
