Find out if this is really what you want to do. If you are good, you can expect to make up to $500 during a day shift or up to $1,000+ on night shift. But if you do not know how to handle yourself and “sell” your services, you may go home with no money and in debt. It is not carved in stone that if you walk into a strip club and look good you will make money.
You will also need to get used to being naked around strangers and strangers trying to touch you. You will have to get comfortable with this and it does get easier with time. They will try (or will grope against your will) the most if you are in a contact club. There are also non-contact clubs where the no-touching rule is strictly enforced. By law in pretty much every state, customers are NOT allowed to touch you, but that doesn’t always prevent it from happening. You have to have a strong backbone and stand up for yourself.
Make sure your body is toned. You do not have to be perfect, but toned. This means you should be in shape, and eat healthy and exercise.
Find clubs you’re interested in working in. Make sure you know what kind of club you’re going to be auditioning for; go there as a customer. Find out the rules for your country and state, each club may let some rules slip. If you see that a club is letting too many rules slip, go to another club. You do not want to work in a club where there could be harm done to the girls or they are not treated respectfully. There are three different types of gentleman’s clubs:
Ask the club you are planning to work in how much they charge to work there and any tip outs (money you give to the club and people who work there, e.g. DJs) and make sure you’re okay forking over up to 50% of your hard earned cash. Different clubs vary and can change nightly also.
Assemble an audition outfit. You can find stripper-wear in catalogs, porn stores, and various places online. Just make sure your outfit is easy to take off while wearing heels. When you scope out the club, the other dancers will tell you where you buy the stuff you need. Note: make sure you’re aware of the laws of where you are working. Some states expect you to wear a certain type of underwear. All things considered, here’s a list of what you should buy:
Practice your routine before you show up for a club audition. Make sure to wear your heels. Dancing and stripping in high heels will be the most challenge part of your routine. Having a mirror or a video recorder will help you see what you look like.
Pick the right songs. You’ll need to develop routines for three types of songs: fast, medium, and slow. And make sure none of them are boring.
Don’t do any pole tricks if you haven’t done them before! You can’t really practice them, and most likely what you try to do will not be sexy. You will learn them in time. The best way to learn how to pole dance is to watch videos online. Then, copy the easier moves. Another alternative is to take pole dancing classes.
Choose a stage name. You don’t want to become infamous using your real name. Pick an appropriate pseudonym for yourself. And make sure to have an alternative or two. More than likely the name you pick will already be taken. Stay away from over-used names like Angel, Diamond or Rose. There are two ways to proceed when picking a name:
For some auditions you may need to just bring your outfit in a bag, go to the club, and say you want to dance. Make sure you have some ID saying you’re 18, or whatever is the permitted age in your county/state/country. Most clubs will put you on a satellite stage to audition. Others will not have you formally audition, but will instead have you change into your outfit to look you over. Some will even just look you over in the manager’s office while still in your street clothes, so remember to wear something figure flattering. If the manager wants you to “audition” anywhere other than the stage, get out of there! Places like this are either looking for “extras” girls or the manager is a pervert who tries to take advantage of the girls. Other clubs may have amatuer nights or audition nights. It’s always best to call the club before you go and find out what their procedure is.
