*** SPECIAL CRASH COURSE: RUSSIAN STYLE! ***
Harkening back to the charm schools of the 1950′s, we will begin each class with mild stretches and “drills” on posture, poise, and persona. (Yes, you might have to stand/walk with a book on your head!) Then we’ll learn a Fishnet Follies Chorus Girl group dance number for upcoming shows. As usual, instructor Mynx d'Meanor recruits Fishnet Follies Chorus Girls from class.
Learn the sultry art of classic burlesque striptease in a fun and friendly environment! You will learn fundamental burlesque moves, pinup poses, and group dance routines for the Fishnet Follies Burlesque Chorus. You will also get an overview of burlesque history, the current “revival” community, as well as pointers on how to create a burlesque persona, costumes and choreography for your own solo act.
Open to women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds, 18 years and older. No prior dance experience necessary!

Fishnet Follies School of Classic Burlesque is an Editor Pick in Diablo Magazine Best of the East Bay 2011:
Pint-sized performer and Fishnet Follies leader Mynx d’Meanor keeps things fun with her goofy sense of humor and easy directions. Don’t let her size fool you: This petite woman is a fiery, sensual vixen, well schooled in the art of the tease.
D’Meanor focuses on the classic burlesque, with slow, elegant, and sophisticated moves. Along with teaching the choreography of two popular Fishnet Follies dance numbers, she coaches students on proper posture—creating long lean lines by emphasizing your body’s best assets through pinup-inspired poses—and how to move evocatively with a deliberate, sensuous grace.
