Our one friend is an exotic dancer and has asked me to make her a few outfits.  What kind of fabric should I use?  I assume it should be stretchy.  Is there anything special I should do to the seams so that while stretching it doesn't snap??

You could ask her to show you what she currently wears and get a feel for what the fabrics are and go from there. As far as stitching it up goes, there's a lot to know, so I'll just start you off on a link http://www.amefird.com/wp-content/uploads/2010/01/Sewing-Stretch-Kni-tFabrics-2-6-10.pdf
