We asked our colleague Steevi to tell us more about herself, her work and experience in this industry. Steevi has some great advice for young dancers and would like to settle down at some point.
Our team started to do this segment for a couple of reasons. We hope to bring awareness to some truths and misconceptions in this industry while getting to know our colleagues a little bit better. Some of these interviews hide jewels in a form of advice for dancers who have just entered this industry.
Listening to people is a skill. This skill can bring you fortune and peace.
Do you have any specific memory of weird clients?
Yes, I had one customer telling me he does cross-dressing with his wife as a fetish. Then there was one client crying in a lapdance as he was there the year before with his wife who had recently passed away.
What is the weirdest wish form a client you have received?
One client paid a young man a lapdance with me because he wanted to watch how the client enjoyed it.
1’000 euros just for recommending his son a dancer in the club that I knew he would like.
What is the most embarrassing song you have ever danced to?
Bonnie Tyler – I need a hero.
Embarrassing but that night was terrible so very accurate!
What would you change in this industry if you had a chance?
The way some people speak to dancers because they have so many issues and insecurities they take the opportunity to take them out. They think money gives them the right.
Which country do you think is the best to work in from your experience?
America for money, New Zealand for beauty (landscape).
Do you have any fears and what would be the biggest one?
Not really (smiles). I have traveled the world with this job and nothing scares me about it. I worry that I have lost my ignorance to men and learned too much of the truth about them, but I also try to remain optimistic by remembering everyone is different and not to judge all people the same way.
Your wildest dream?
I’ve lived a pretty wild life already, my dreams now are calm! I just bought a house, I want to get a little bit of stability, and one day travel the world with someone I love for leisure instead of work.
Can we ask you to give advice on 3 most important things for dancers who have just entered this industry?
Don’t drink every night or take drugs, it’s so easy but don’t fall into that trap!
Try to stay single, girls think it’s easy to balance but it makes it harder even when you don’t realize it.
Save your money! You earn it fast but it’s not always great, it’s up and down so don’t take that for granted, you will be better off when you are tired of dancing to have saved up enough to have a break.
If you could leave only one advice to this world:
Don’t give your priorities up for someone else, the right person will understand your truth and don’t get angry if they don’t, look for someone who does.
