Yes, For Safety
Pole dancers use their skin to grip. It’s important that the costume or attire selected for the performance has bare skin that accommodates the areas needed to grip the routine’s tricks. Also, depending on the routine, extra fabric or anything flowy could potentially cause a slip or injury if the performer isn’t able to move around it as they perform.
Another reason that proper pole wear is important for a successful performance is that the attire can help create and express style and mood or tell a story helping the routine come to life for the performer.
