By day, they may be wholesome, fresh-scrubbed college students, nurses and secretaries. But when night falls, they become dancers who gyrate seductively in G- string swimsuits for appreciative male audiences, then talk to individual patrons. They can make from $50 to $500 in tips during a four-or five-hour shift. The women are the attractions of the exotic dance clubs that have been popping up at the Shore in recent years in record numbers. New Jersey law prohibits establishments that serve alcohol from exhibiting total nudity, and in these clubs you won't find any more flesh displayed than you would see on the beach.

Two sides of Rennie Harris showed up at Puremovement's show Friday and Saturday at the Kimmel Center's Perelman Theater - the lite and the dark. The show, which included a sneak peek at a developing piece and the premiere of 100 Naked Locks, opened with Something to Do With Love, Volume 1, the first of a soon-to-be-three-part dance first conceived in 2006. As with the hip-hop piece, 100 Naked Locks, which was presented here in progress two years ago, Harris often shows partially finished works that he tweaks along the way. For his fans, it's an appetizer for the next banquet.

The Mount Holly Township Council, acting to "upgrade the image" of the township, gave final approval yesterday to a ban on go-go dancing. The move, which has been planned since October, was directed at Chat's Sports Lounge on Mill Street - the only establishment in Mount Holly that features scantily clad dancers. Also yesterday, the council appointed Joseph L. Jones to serve out the remainder of former Councilman Eugene Stafford's term, which ends June 30. Stafford resigned last month from both the council and the Burlington County freeholder board, saying he wanted to spend more time with his family.

The owner of the adult Carnival Bookstore on Route 130 in Brooklawn pleaded guilty yesterday to permitting prostitution inside the shop and will be given an 18-month suspended sentence. Louis Trombetta, 60, of the first block of Freedom Road in Sewell, admitted to Camden County Superior Court Judge Louis F. Hornstine that sexual contact between patrons and female dancers took place at the business. In a plea arrangement negotiated by Assistant Camden County Prosecutor Brian E. Mulholland and defense attorney Raymond E. Milavsky of Cherry Hill, Trombetta also agreed to forfeit half of a store bank account that had been seized, worth $83,700; to pay a $5,000 fine; and to serve 18 months of probation.

Upper Chichester Township sued Delilah's Dolls yesterday, alleging zoning violations and asking that the topless bar be shut down at least until the suit is resolved. Formerly Boomerang's nightclub, Delilah's has been at the center of controversy since it opened Feb. 17. Its female dancers have drawn protests, pickets and threats of boycotts and sent the township's Board of Commissioners scurrying for a legal position to close the bar on Conchester Road just east of Route 452. In a suit filed in Delaware County Court yesterday, the township says that Delilah's violated township zoning laws by "providing entertainment to the public by way of topless female dancers.

Five employees of the Carnival Bookstore and club on Route 130 in Brooklawn were released on their own recognizance yesterday after they were arraigned in Camden County Superior Court on prostitution-related charges. The five were indicted by a county grand jury on Wednesday on charges that grew from a Feb. 6 raid by investigators from the Camden County Prosecutor's Office, the Sheriff's Department and local police. The bookstore manager, Louis Trombetta, 59, of the first block of Freedom Road in Sewell, and the assistant manager, Charles Deuter, 50, of the Millbridge Apartments in Clementon, were among those arraigned yesterday before Superior Court Judge Linda G. Rosenzweig.

You don't have to be German to join the Skleno Civic Club, a/k/a/ Catwalk. Just walk through the door of the 1 1/2-story brick building, plunk down 10 bucks, and you're an instant member of a club formed in 1937 to help German immigrants adjust to America. You don't have to have a good imagination, either. The female dancers don't leave you much to wonder about. But the little they do wear is patriotic: tiny red, white and blue G- strings with stars. A flier says patrons can pose with the near-nude girls.

A party with six female dancers was crashed early yesterday by two men who held the women and revelers at gunpoint, robbing them of about $500, police said. The gunmen fled through a rear fire escape but were apprehended several minutes later by police, who spotted them driving on Basin Street near Powell Street. Arrested were two Norristown men, Marston Lockman, 18, of the 1400 block of Arch Street, and Wilson Darden, 18, of the 600 block of George Street. Each was being held in Montgomery County Prison last night after failing to make $5,000 cash bail.

Susan Hess' incubator for choreographers, The Choreographers Project, is now 10 years old, and it continues to hatch interesting work. Several times a year, Susan Hess Modern Dance offers programs like the one over the weekend, in which several dancer-choreographers showed off the evolving results of their unhurried, multiyear residencies. All four pieces, by Leslie Dworkin, Asimina Chremos, Roko Kawai and Rennie Harris, were described as "works in progress," and most were solos.

THERE HAVE BEEN a number of movies about the world of ballet, and all of them have made it seem like a back-stabbing sorority - "Mean Girls" in toe shoes. But none of the stories compare with what's going on at Russia's vaunted Bolshoi. Earlier this month, principal dancer Pavel Dmitrichenko was arrested over suspicion that he was involved in the acid-splashing attack on artistic director Sergei Filin . Now, according to the Huffington Post, former star dancer Anastasia Volochkova has accused the company of pimping out its female dancers.

Because of passport problems and a missed flight, the members of DanceBrazil didn't get to Philadelphia until 4 a.m. Thursday. But you would never have guessed it from the explosive, high-energy performance they gave that same night at the Annenberg Center. The much-traveled troupe celebrated its 35th anniversary by presenting a pair of short pieces choreographed by their founder and artistic director, Jelon Vieira. Like him, the dozen dancers come from Brazil - mainly Bahia, the center of Afro-Brazilian culture.

Two impressive world premieres by Annabelle Lopez Ochoa set BalletX's summer season ablaze at the Wilma Theater on Wednesday evening. Ochoa has choreographed for the company before, and Laura Feig and Adam Hundt danced her Bare with charming tenderness. In ordinary underwear, they languidly spill over each other, entwining and uncoupling as if drowsy with morning love. Duets perpetually serve as studies of coupledom, and Amy Seiwert's It's Not a Cry explores the couple over the long haul.

Heaven , Rennie Harris Puremovement's new hip-hop work for the Philadelphia International Festival of the Arts at the Perelman Friday night, premiered hellishly late when the stagehand could not work the fog machine that was to have put us all on cloud nine. Long white panels hung from fluorescent rods (James Clotfelter was lighting and scenic designer) and eventually were raised above the dancers' heads to act as projection screens. After the show, Clotfelter lamented that his lighting on the fog would have made it look so cloudlike.

M ARC ANTONELLI is performing through the end of the month at Tropicana Casino and Resort. We'll now pause for a moment to allow you to say, "Who?" Don't feel bad if that's the first thought that crossed your mind. Antonelli is but 23, and this is his Atlantic City main-stage debut. But it won't be surprising if, a few years from now, he is included with Harry Connick Jr., Josh Groban and Michael Buble whenever the roster of top-shelf, modern-day crooners and "popera" artists is enumerated.

"Love the Way You Lie," the combustible single by Eminem and Rihanna that depicts a violent cycle of domestic abuse and dependency, is undoubtedly the song of the summer. It has been on top of the Billboard singles chart for five weeks running. For good reason: The song resonates with the life story of both protagonists, what with Eminem's stormy relationship with his wife, Kim, and Rihanna's brutal beating by then-boyfriend Chris Brown in 2009. Perhaps the song's strongest asset is its searing hook, sung by the Barbadian R&B star, who played an action-packed show Wednesday to a 20,000-strong crowd of mostly teenage girls at the Susquehanna Bank Center in Camden.

There are reasons the 20-year-old River North Chicago Dance Company has a large Philadelphia following and draws appreciative audiences whenever it appears here, as it did Thursday at the Annenberg Center. Several members have local ties: Artistic director Frank Chaves trained and danced here in the '80s in the jazz-dance company Waves; Monique Haley, who performs this weekend in several pieces, including a work of her own, is a Philly native and University of the Arts grad; and well-known UArts teacher Jae Hoon Lim, a principal dancer with Koresh Dance Company, formerly danced with River North.

Video clips interspersed with the four dances on Tuesday (the first of their two Dance Celebration programs at the Annenberg) introduce the group, showing them backstage and in transit - goofy, intrepid, and game. The discipline of a ballet dancer is fierce, so a viewer anticipates seeing a certain tone. The three guys here (BB founders Michael Nunn and William Trevitt, plus Tim Morris)
