The first thing you need to do is to look inside you and realize that if you are a shy person, you will have to shed that as this is a job where you have to let your personality show. The more self assured and confident that you are, then the better that the end results will be for you when it comes to being an exotic dancer. If you are wondering about this, then go to a club one night and just watch Cincinnati exotic strippers dancing on a stage. You will see that they own the stage and are not bashful.
Picking your stage name will be important as this will be what customers will know you as. It is not a good idea to use your real name as this can lead to some issues you may not want if you have a person that becomes a stalker. You also want to have a stage name that stands out from the rest. Sure names like fire, cinnamon and diamond are all nice, but you want people to remember your name for a long time.
Going to audition will be the last step before you actually become a dancer. Many clubs will not just hire a dancer without an audition, the management wants to see what you can do and see if you will be a good fit for their club. This is your chance to make an impression and leave no doubts as to f you will be a good fit.
