60’s 70’s GoGo Girls Disco Dancer Costume Med-Large Size
Go-go dancing originated in the early 1960s. Some claim that go-go dancing originated at, and was named for, the very popular L.A. rock club Whiskey A Go Go which opened in January 1964. Many 1960s-era club goers wore miniskirts and knee-high, high-heeled boots, which eventually came to be called go-go boots. Night club promoters in the mid‑1960s then conceived the idea of hiring women dressed in these outfits to entertain patrons. Go-go dancers were hired to dance at night clubs, special parties, festivals, circuit parties or rave dances wore bright, colourful costumes. Their costumes often include accessories such as glow sticks, light chasers, toy ray guns that light up, go-go shorts embedded with battery operated fibre optic tubes in various colours, strings of battery operated coloured lights in plastic tubes, fire sticks, a musical instrument, or an animal (usually a snake).
The term go-go derives from the phrase “go-go-go” for a high-energy person, and was influenced by the French expression à gogo, meaning “in abundance, galore”, which is in turn derived from the ancient French word la gogue for “joy, happiness”.
So if you’re gonna represent a Go-Go dancer from a by-gone era, get a costume that will make you the hottest GoGo girl around town. A costume with psychedelic colours and glittery shine accents and white trims that will make you look every inch the part.
