The culture of the go-go dancer?

In a message posted to the NYBF message board, it was observed that the go-go dancers performing at the Element Premiere Party for the festival in some cases tended to skew their performance style and onstage behavior closer to that of a gentleman's club dancer than that of a burlesque dancer. It was noted that the term "go-go dancing" is most likely left up to interpretation.

Is go-go dancing up to interpretation? Does it vary by region or circumstance? Is there a specific culture of go-go that lays down the rules of style and attitude? Is it fair to lump go-go girls in with burlesque dancing?
