istock_000000157049_l1.jpgIf you study history, you study human nature. If you learn Showgirl history you may gain insight to your own existence in the business. Intellectualizing being a stripper shines rays of hope into caverns of loneliness and fear.

Besides the old photographs are enchanting and provocative.  Harsh lights and curvy silhouettes bring the attitudes of these daring women to life.

This is our history girls, let’s take it easy and learn it together. By learning who did what before you were born, will empower you and help you to be seen as a true performer.

Possessing the knowledge and vocabulary to define what beat you dance to sets you apart from the average stereotype. This job takes study commitments just like any other job. If you want to make money without selling your coo coo then you need a gimmick and flexibility to reinvent yourself.

This may be accomplished by studying the acts, costumes and poses of the past. Everything can be redone by you, using your fresh ideas and creativity. In another lesson I will illustrate how to use materials to make inexpensive costumes.    

Once upon a time ago, I had a really rad book with tons of names and dates. I’ll try and hunt that one down to share with you.
