JANUARY 2012 at the SALON

a work-in-progress by Jamie Martina

What do you think of when you imagine the life of a stripper? Where does this imagery come from? We've all seen the cliched scenario depicting gritty clubs with coked-out women who hate their situation, patrons running away from their problems, mean management etc. But how many of us have taken the time to ask a dancer how she feels about her job? This documentary tells the story from the stage- former and current dancers set the record straight about how dancing makes them feel, what they laugh about in dressing rooms, and how, to some, they just see themselves as "sexier counselors."
