A lot of strip clubs pad the perimeter of their club room(s) with mirrors to give the illusion that the room(s) is(are) bigger. As a beginner, you’re probably more concerned about making a good impression on the people at your stage show then thinking about the walls, but I’d like to give you something to think about.

You can use the mirrors around you to your advantage. The most obvious is being able to see yourself and your form. When you’re just starting out, you may be a little self conscious and unsure about yourself, so getting a different perspective may ease your fears. By doing this, you can make slight changes to your routine when you see something that doesn’t look as appealing as you thought it would.

You can also use the mirrors around you to see how your customers are responding to your stage dance without staring at them and making them uncomfortable.

As you read “How To Be A Stripper: Everything You Ever Wanted To Know But Were Too Afraid To Ask,” you’ll notice that I’m all about personal and money safety, so naturally, I would advise you to use mirrors to keep a watchful eye on your money box and the people around it.

One thing to be careful about is that customers can see you in the mirror too. If you’re up on stage don’t make a bored or grossed out face when you think no one’s looking and then turn around facing your customers with a fake plastered smile… there’s a good chance they saw that and needless to say, you’ve probably cost yourself some tips!
