You can find Reagan Reilly flying around the stripper poles at Palomino Club (club review / club website). The first time I saw her I was struck by the ecstatic expression on her face. You can see it in the photos below.
I noticed men who were on their way to the club’s private rooms for a lap dance stop in their tracks to watch her. Even the dancers out on the floor stopped to watch her.
Talking with her later I learned she was Miss Nude Wisconsin 2014.
I asked Reagan how she got into dancing in strip clubs. She said, “I was always fascinated with being an exotic dancer. I loved playing dress up and dancing in front of the mirror.”
Since this set of photos was taken, Reagan has continued to enhance her pole dancing skills. She has also enhanced her cup size (see the new Reagan at right). You can read about how she feels about her new body at Reagan Reilly Goes Double DD.
Me: What was it like getting started as a dancer?
Reagan: “I remember the first time I was on stage, I didn’t know what to do when the pole started spinning. It was at a small topless bar in Pennsylvania. I rushed through my set, but I enjoyed it.”
Me: What do you like best about dancing?
Reagan: “I like showing people that exotic dance is an art. I’m a performer and athlete. I love doing advanced pole tricks and seeing people’s reactions to the strength that’s required.”
Me: What do you like least about the job?
Reagan: “The feeling of rejection. And fears about what other people think when I talk about what I do for a living. Or when I feel disrespected and unappreciated as an entertainer and human being.”
Me: What’s your ultimate goal as a performer?
Reagan: “I’m enjoying showing people, one by one, the art of exotic dance. I would like to focus on getting bookings as a feature entertainer. I did my first booking in June, and have been doing competitions since March 2013. I would also like to explore singing and other performing arts outside of the strip club world.”
Me: What would you most like your audience to know about you?
Reagan: “I have a passion and a talent. I take exotic dance seriously as an art and a job. I don’t mind chatting with customers who might not want a dance. I think it’s important as an entertainer to entertain regardless and I genuinely enjoy connecting with people. I have met some of the most amazing people on my journey.
“The other thing I want is for people to see me as a person. I want people to understand this is my passion, and it’s a priority for me to put on a good show. I would like people to know I have strong faith, spirituality and a relationship with my Creator, who I believe has me dancing for a reason.”
In addition to dancing in Vegas, Reagan has recently been performing as a feature dancer in clubs around the country.
