If you are pole dancing you probably know, that learning to do all the tricks is one thing, but giving a performance absolutely another. To put on a truly amazing performance as a pole dancer, you must start with the most important part of the dance - the mind-set. When you have the correct psyche, you will look hot, even if you are wearing sweatpants! You must become someone else, and you can do several things to help you create your new, sexy, alter ego. That's the focus of this article - getting your mind ready to dance. Let's go!
Chances are you wouldn't recognize a pole dancer at the bank or post office or even when she is dropping her child off at school. There is a reason for that: pole dancers are not themselves when they are on stage; they are a fantasy. They become someone else, and for most dancers, that's the only way they can get up there and do it. All pole dancers have split personality. As soon as we get into our costumes and on that stage, we become the other person.
Pole dancing is all acting, and when you act, you become another person. To help yourself psychologically with this "transformation" you need a stage name to make your personality change tangible. When you have that name, you have taken the first step in becoming someone else. You have a name, and thus another complete personality.
You can choose an adjective that may reflect a small part of yourself, such as Spicy, Vixen, or Foxy. Standard stripper names are also always a good choice, because when you hear names like Bunny, Bambi, Candi, Coco, or Amber, you automatically think of someone hot.
Eve just a normal name you find pretty, like Brittney, Tiffany, Juliana, Veronica, or holly can work, or you can be creative with names like Aurora, Xandra, Harley, Blaze, Saber, Gypsy, or Lace. Two names are also very sexy, such as Sexual Chocolate, Sweet Thing etc.
Or you could follow that old schoolyard rule of picking your stripper name using the name of your first pet with the first street you lived on. In my case, my name would have been Lolly Main. That method could backfire though if you end up with something like Ralph Butterworth.
Overall, have fun picking your stage name. Be creative. Get your thesaurus if you need to. This will help you transform into another personality, relax and perform much better than before.
