How can you use showgirls during a performance?

Dancers, male or female are used to enhance an illusion. Let's face it, most illusions only take a few moments to present. To get a little more time out of these substantial investments, dancers fit the bill perfectly!

I hate to even reference it here in this forum, but watch the masked magician and you'll see how the dancers add production value to each illusion...

You ask the question with using the term "showgirls." Are you referring to what us "older" guys would refer to as dressing for an illusion, or are you referring to dancers as referred to by Jes, above. Most "modern" Vegas magic shows, I would say, use multi-skilled dancers, those with dance ability, also with the ability (and looks)to act as a "showgirl." Off the top of my head a show I think many of us would know, would be the Blackstone Jr. show, his Arabian Nights sequence and the Chinese numbers would be an example of the "showgirl" dressing. The Inca segment in the original "ShaZzam!" show would be an example of "showgirl" use, there just for dressing. A photo of this segment is on my site from the Lee Edwards recreation of the number.

See the scrapbook on my site.
I have also just added several sets of costumes from the Blackstone show to my production to add colour, spectacle, etc.

Use of showgirls: decorative, for misdirection, to provide cover, any other thoughts out there??

sometimes the showgirls are the draw for the show, intend or unintend and then the magician is the dressing
