We have over one hundred dancers in male revue shows such as – Magic Mike Live, Thunder from Down Under, Chippendales and Aussie Heat.
Some of these dancers also dance at strip clubs such as Hustlers and Sapphire and Spearmint Rhino.
To be a male entertainer a.k.a. exotic dancer a.k.a. male stripper, You need to have a few qualifications.
1. You must be in good physical shape.
2. You must not be shy and you have to be comfortable enough to get naked in front of people.
3. You have to know how to dance. It’s not enough just to do humping moves you really should watch Magic Mike movies and learn some routines. You have to know how to dance. It’s not enough just to do humping moves you really should watch Magic Mike movies and learn some routines.
4. You have to have a fun personality. As a male stripper you are the center of attention and the party starter. It is your job to get everyone in a great mood.
5. You have to be in control and know how to do your job professionally. That means coming on time and being prepared and dressed appropriately.
6. Do you have to satisfy the customers and make them happy. Of course this is all within reason but it is your mission to make sure everyone is having a good time. And it’s important to focus on the customers that aren’t used to getting attention versus the attractive ones that get it all the time. If you give the attractive person lots of attention than the rest the group is going to resent that person and that just ruins the overall mood of the party.
7. You should also be a knowledgeable host. Guests will often ask the male stripper about Las Vegas and all of it’s attractions. They’ll ask you for advice on where to go and what to do. It’s important to have this information handy and it definitely helps improves tips in the end.
8. You should be comfortable with your “package”. Meaning, you have to have decent groin size as the female guests will often focus down there and wonder what you’re working with. You don’t have to get completely nude, some guys will not dance unless they were briefs or a g-string. Those who do get fully naked are often in the “above average size” class of people.
9. You should not be addicted to alcohol or drugs. This is a type of job where you could be around those temptations. Not often drugs but alcohol is almost always present at every party. So it takes a man who does not have a chemical addiction to handle these types of entertainment jobs.
