Women behaving badly: The art of the table dance

Have you ever felt the mischievous urge to launch yourself onto a table top at a party and bust out some killer moves?

Lots of us have — that’s why table dancing in strip clubs is so much fun to watch. It’s the cheeky, informal, devil-may-care spontaneity of it. Combine this with some sexy, skimpy lingerie, suggestive dance moves and racy nudity and you have a performance that’s quite different from other types of exotic dance. While lap dances are intimate and pole dances are exciting, table dances are naughty, boisterous and fun.

The devil may care, but our dancers don’t!

Table dancing gives audience members a more ‘up close and personal’ experience than pole dances and stage shows. There’s barely any distance between the man and the dancer, who’s performing right there in front of him on his table or on top of the bar. This is the biggest thrill for men who feel that the distance when a performer is on stage takes away from really enjoying the dance — a table dance completely eliminates that concern.

A dance that’s been popular for centuries

This type of dance has actually been a part of many cultural celebrations throughout history. At Brazilian carnivals, along with numerous European and Australian events, it’s been performed by women in traditional costume to entertain the crowds, and has been a common sight at fairs and festivals for as long as we can remember.

The new wave of modern table dancing in London strip clubs and gentlemen’s venues began in the second half of the 20th century. It was when exotic dance was moving away from the old-fashioned, tamer routines of the 1930s, 40s and 50s, which led to a spike in the popularity of gentlemen’s clubs across the UK. Club owners felt that the more frivolous and flirtatious style of the table dance gave it a more social and casual feel. It meant that everyone felt as though they could get involved, have a laugh and enjoy the show. And the fact that this type of adult entertainment is still so popular today shows that it was definitely a step in the right direction!
