JERSEY GIRL$$$ PART ONE
is a visual and audio presentation about trained NYC dancers who traveled to New Jersey to pursue work as dancers in the mid 1980s.
Donned in rhinestone 'G Strings, high-heels and giant feather headdresses we performed two rigorous shows a night, six nights a week. Some of us fully embraced the seductive glitz and glamour of the Vegas styled revues, while others found financial independence and flexibility dancing nights at the local Go-Go bars and clubs. Despite our talent, training and professionalism

JERSEY GIRL$$$: professional dancers talk about their personal experiences and the pros and cons of working in stigmatized venues that compensate you for being the object of the male gaze.
