Posted:hey mate, if you want twirling gigs, then you should know generally that:
- if you don't have an agreement on paper, it doesn't exist, and the promoters don't necessarily pay you - be explicit about what toys you will twirl, for how long, how many times, where, and do you get to meet William Shatner at the end of it all.. - you should be well aware of of just how much space you need - then double it! better to be well spaced than sorry. - glow gigs don't necessarily require fire-specific precautions (duh!) such as a towel gimp and fire performers' liability insurance, but you can still conceiveably come to grief if your glow/electroglow equipment draw blood. know your performance environment. There is a totally annoying tendency for some audience members to walk right across your act to avoid the crush of spectators - it's annoying as, but common i find. - videos of past performances speak more than any leaflet will - promoters love to use this stuff when they are justifying your pay to their boss. - Only a Chef can truly make you a seasoned twirler. yum.
i have such a gig in a few weeks and will forward photos if/when i can (heh earthdreamer pulled out of a gig and i'm filling her spot yay for default! )
