    Default Am I too big for upscale club? Unsure where to audition in NYC

    5BCFCB55-4477-45B3-BD4D-6FAD9C5E7CDE.jpeg8845862E-CA00-4BFA-8A71-5889084A2463.jpg6BF52896-BE4D-4FAE-9B58-F213E027C457.jpg
    Hi everyone! Iíve been taking pole classes at studios for a while now and am ready to take it to the next level and dance in a real club. I am half black/half white - no boobs or butt, but I do have hips. I canít twerk all night...Iím not good at it, so I was steering away from urban clubs. I am unsure if I will fit in at upscale clubs in manhattan or if Iím too big/curvy. I have a really pretty face, freckles, straight teeth. Iíve been told I look Latina/Asian. Iím so overwhelmed, I donít know where to start. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

    I think starting at a mid tier club or dive is always a good place to start for any dancer. It’s your time you can do whatever you want. Rejection is how we make money. So I’d get comfortable with the fear of rejection before you dance. every no gets me closer to a yes. It can’t hurt to try. I know some clubs In Denver are assholes, but most will just say we aren’t hiring or some BS. Most places aren’t mean about it

    You look great to me. Start auditioning at top-tier places and work your way down if they reject you. Good luck!

    You look great, but that yellow high-cut thong makes your hips look weird - go with the second outfit. Unless 90s heroin-chic makes a come-back, and as long as people are still getting butt implants, curves are in.

    I haven't worked in NYC but I don't think you are big.

    You look fine. Claim to be Asian, it's a huge fetish niche for dancers. "Yellow Fever" is how I made my money as a dancer.

    I think you look really great but I agree that I wouldn’t wear the style of the yellow suit, definetly like the second outfit on you way better! But you have a really nice body you shouldn’t have problems.

    You have a good body type for upscale NYC clubs, but definitely bring a gown (a long dancer dress) when going on any type of audition in Manhattan. Wear the gown with a dancer thong underneath (not a cheeky panty). Don't try to audition in a bikini or two-piece. (1) They won't let you wear that type of outfit, and (2) you'll seem unprepared for the upscale environment. Wear your hair straight, meaning get a blowout or straighten it yourself. Your shoes are fine. Wear glam, "sex kitten" makeup (such as a smokey eye), and dance slowly, as if you were lingerie modeling. Do not do any pole tricks during your audition--you might as well shoot yourself in the foot. Manhattan clubs do not encourage pole tricks. Start the audition process at your most preferred club, and, if they say no, move down your list to your second-choice one. If they ask if you have danced before, tell them the truth and say no. It's not a big deal if you have the look, which you have. Do not feel you must start out at a dive simply because you are new.
