Chippendale dancers are a group of men who provocatively dance for a primarily female audience. They are best known as being shirtless, muscular and wearing little else but bow ties, white cuffs and black spandex pants.
The original "Chippendales" nightclub was started by Indian immigrant and entrepreneur Somen "Steve" Banerjee. After owning a Mobil gas station and a failed backgammmon club, he used a small investment to purchase a failed Los Angeles club named "Destiny II". Originally, Chippendales had female mud wrestling and a 'Male Exotic Dancing Night' for the ladies. It was the first one of its kind in the USA. Banerjee established a relationship with choreographer Nick DeNoia, who had won an Emmy Award directing children's shows, in the early 1980's. Nick was talented and driven. He recruited the 'best looking' men to bring women's fantasies to life, not just strip tease. There is no doubt he played a major role in the successes that made Chippendales a world-famous institution.
Toujours la suite! lol
