STRIPTEASE SOLO LEVEL 2: MUSICALITY & COSTUME DEVELOPMENT
This series will build on the basic elements we learned in Level 1, focusing on costuming and musicality. We will work on the 3 C’s of burlesque performance: Charisma, Costume, and Choreography. We will brainstorm on costuming ideas, learn embellishing techniques, strengthening your stage presence, and learn how to interpret music through movement. Our goal is to create a solid act concept which you will refine and polish in Level 3.
Students will receive helpful worksheets and custom-sized starter bases for pasties.
PREREQUISITE: Must have completed Chorus Girl Choreography Level 1, Striptease Solo Level 1, or instructor approval.
Wed / SEPTEMBER 3 - 24, 2014 / 7:00PM – 8:00PM
Early registration - Solo: $80.00

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.
