Dancers carry out little on the main floor and instead, focus on lap dances, or private shows. Some clubs will have a rotation of dancers on stage, but this is normally with very little of the showmanship compared to other countries. Drinks for girls cost the same as if they would for customers as there is no drinks or champagne commission offered to the dancers. All the money is spent and made in the private rooms.
