Hi i am flying to Sydney on 15/08/05 with two of my friends.

We would love to consider dancing in clubs as it is a good way of making fast cash. We have never danced before and were wondering if there is clubs that train you up.

Also i would be interested in being a life guard can anybody give me any ideas if there is a course, how much is it and how long it takes?

I appreciate any advice.

Colleen

You need to firstly past the Royal Life Saving Association first aid course to be a life guard

haha-dancing i was thinking of this the other day-just thinking about if i travelled for a long time-i'd want to try out diff experiences and earn good oney quick-altho i dont know how well paid this is-but its fun and it'll keep you fit!! anyhow-i feel i'm going to go off in a tangent so i'll stop!!

From what i know they audition kind of thing, most clubs have their regular dancers tho! but i'm no expert! I would think abroard in particular it would be easier-foreign speaking places-well i mean the regulars like Ibiza etc.

Hi There

Word of advise , first nor quite sure what dancind your talking about, If its lap dancing or anything along those lines, there are plenty of clubs here I havn't been to any but have seen them advertising! you may want to steer clear of Kings Cross as its pretty dingey ! but across the city you will no doubt find somewhere, check magazines like 3D as they have personal wants in the back ! and there are quite afew other magazines that you can check !!

Peace

Warren

Hey, I think your best bet would be life guarding, which would certainly require some certification, which you could get in a couple of months at any local pool (assuming you are a decent swimmer). In terms of dancing..... that could get a little risky, I guess it depends on what kind of travel experince you are after. I'm not quite up to speed on how they even hire, is there some sort of audition? I'm not quite sure when you're heading out, but you may want to keep in mind that their winter is fast approaching.

Dance on,

Graham

I'm not sure that being a life guard in Oz is something you should aim to do. On the Gold Coast some of the life-guards are volunteers. And if they aren't, then they are part of a Surf Life Saving Club.

If you are set on being life-guards, you could perhaps try 'Wet 'n Wild'. It's a water theme park. I had a friend who worked there but I know they cut back on staff over the winter. You may be in luck with your timing though, however the theme park is on the Gold Coast.

As for dancing, well of course it depends on what type of dancing you are talking about. There is plenty of work for strippers but as mentioned previously, most nightclubs do have their regular dancers and then they are part of a dance troupe/school.

Stripping would certainly give you the fast cash you want though!

As soapsuds correctly says, almost all lifeguards are volunteers.

As for dancing in clubs....no idea. Sounds a bit dodgy to me though -doing it for money that is.

There's "Raunchy Girls" & "Foxy Ladies". They provide any necessary training

I was thinking about doing a pole dancing course with a friend for a bit of a laugh - it is very good for your fitness! Don't think anyone would want to actually pay me to do it but you never know - I might be a natural! Take a look at the following web site.
