Being a dancer is hard work but it can be very rewarding. Not only can you have a great deal of fun as a dancer, but you can also make a good deal of money. If you are working in a well run gentleman’s club, then you most likely make good wages already. However, there are things that you can do that will allow you to get even better tips. All of these things are easy to do and will not require you to step out of your comfort zone at all.
You Are a Fantasy
As a dancer at a gentleman’s club, you are a part of a fantasy. Men head for a gentleman’s club for one main reason – to escape from reality. The man who comes to see you on a Saturday may be looking for a break from his rough marriage while the gentleman who comes in to watch you dance every Wednesday might simply be very lonely. You are part of their fantasy. You become part of their daydreams and it is your job to make them feel good.
Always keep up the illusion of the fantasy. The gentlemen who come to see you dance wants someone to pay attention to them with no strings attached. They are most likely not very interested in whether your car is in the shop. They are even less interested in hearing about your bad boyfriend. Ask them how they are and let them talk about themselves. Pay attention to them and if they want you to talk about yourself, talk about things that men can easily add to a fantasy. Tell them about the latest new dress you bought or about how you hang out with your roommate in your pajamas on weekends to watch movies. This will keep them interested and coming back. A gentleman who keeps coming back is one who will keep giving you tips.
Get to Know Them
If a gentleman buys you more than one drink when he sees you dance or tips you more than a dollar is one that you want to remember everything about. These gentlemen are the ones who are likely to be repeat customers. Pay attention to the things that they say. Learn their names and remember them. When they come to see you, greet them by name. This goes a long way to getting you better tips.
You should also try to remember anything they say that is important to them. They may tell you about a job promotion, their hobbies, or things that they are interested in, such as their favorite music or movie. Remembering these things goes a long way towards upholding the idea that you are their perfect fantasy. These gentlemen will continue to want to see you because you pay such good attention to them.
Never Leave With Them
In order to keep getting good tips, never leave the club with any of the gentlemen. Some gentlemen may ask you to go somewhere with them, especially since you make them feel important. Make sure that you have plenty of reasons for not going anywhere with any of them. When you leave the club, not only have you lost that protection but you also have ended their need for coming to the club to see you. It’s much cheaper to just take you on a date than it is to pay to see you in the club.
