1. It Could Result in a Lawsuit
First and foremost, touching the performers in a nightclub or show is always inappropriate and can be considered sexual harassment. This can make the performer uncomfortable and can also lead to potential legal action. Even if you think the gesture is harmless or friendly, it’s important to remember that it may not be perceived that way. It’s best to keep your hands to yourself and show respect for the performer.

2. It’s for Everyone’s Safety
Touching the performers can be intrusive to their performance. It is often disruptive to their flow and can even put their safety at risk. If a performer is jumping or hanging during their performance, an unexpected touch could cause them to lose their balance, their focus, and potentially get injured.
3. So that Everyone Could Enjoy the Show
Finally, don’t touch the performers so you are not distracting to the audience. If you are in the audience, you don’t want to miss out on any part of the performance. By distracting the performer with a touch or being in the line of sight, you are taking away from the experience for everyone else.
It’s important to remember to keep your hands to yourself when attending nightclubs or shows. Respect should be given to the performers, and touching them should be avoided. Doing so will ensure that everyone has a fun and safe experience. In some experiences – as with Wild Entertainment – the expert entertainers will give consent for safe physical contact.
