Please Explain: Modern Gogo Dancing

Gogo dancersWe enjoy a good subculture, whether it’s the big booty girls so loved by the hippity-hoppers or the cosplaying babes so loved by convention geeks. Hot is hot, and we should all take a swim outside the mainstream once in awhile.

Here’s one we know little about: Gogo dancing. We get the general idea of gogo dancing, a babe stands up on the stage and dances, it helps get the party going… it’s not a new concept. So perhaps we should call this something like Modern Gogo Dancing. It’s a car-show type thing, very stylized and sexy in ways we don’t fully understand.

The dancers wear fairly revealing outfits, particularly in the ass region. Modern Gogo has a lot to do with ass. And hips — it’s almost like bellydancing at times. A sped-up bellydancing in hot pants or a thong, with occasional booty-popping. Sometimes they’ll be up there on the stage going absolutely crazy with it, shaking their business all over the place; at other times they seem almost disinterested, absent-mindedly rolling those liquid hips and staring off into space. And then–pow!–they’re shaking their business all over the place again.

We know what you’re thinking at this point: Girlwatcher, dude, you are not explaining this very well. It sounds like they’re just sexy dancers.

Well, there are the boots… they wear these crazy furry boots. And they seem to have a lot of things tied onto them, sometimes around their limbs but always hanging off at the hip, so that the dancing may make you think of flag football. Sometimes they’ll even wear a tutu thing, but it’s cut ridiculously short so that viewers (who are always below the dancers, looking up) can still dig the hot pants or thong. And they also have lovely long hair they whip most skillfully.

Here, just watch this video:

That video was uploaded by a gogo dancer named Benilda or Miss Benilda (that’s her on the left), sort of a friend-of-a-friend of Girlwatcher’s and a champion of the gogo dancer’s art. Perhaps some day she could come by and give us a better explanation of what is going on than this bumbling attempt. Here’s Benilda doing her gogo thing:

(That last picture isn’t too great but we love the dude on the right side checking her out. Yeah, you like dat azz, don’t you kid?)

Here are some more pictures, some of Benilda, some of Benilda and her friends, and some of other women who may or may not be Benilda’s friends. All images jacked from Benilda’s Facebook page and the Gogopalooza 2010 gallery at PureHotModels
