Performers are called strippers, exotic dancers or just dancers, or entertainers. Another name for a stripper is an ecdysiastic dancer or simply an ecdysiast. Many reasons have been cited as to why women become exotic dancers; however, the overriding motivation is to make money. The more attractive the dancer, the more business she generates.
