Event description

Description

In this series, we will learn choreography for "Wicked Stage"-- combining flirtatious, frivolous stylings of flapper chorus girls with a sultry, moody, jazz-age era group routine!

We will use elements from the "Flapper Fundamentals" workshop, and work on dramatic poses, sinewy movements, strong character/presence, group formations, panel skirt and fabric manipulations.

In this series, we will briefly review Part 1 of the routine ("Life Upon The Wicked Stage"), and focus on learning Part 2 ("Chant of Bechet"), as well as adding costuming elements to our class rehearsals.

The latest addition to the Fishnet Follies "Gatsby Fantasy" suite of acts.

Image used here are to give students an idea of the overall feeling of the piece. Costuming requirements and resources will be given in class. See "mood board" on Pinterest.

MUSIC: "Life Upon The Wicked Stage" (Blossom Dearie) + "Chant of Bechet" (Dr. Michael White)

... ... ...

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-- and some core work! You'll also be provided with video tutorials and other online reference materials to enhance our studio work.

Open to all shapes, sizes and backgrounds, 18 years and older. No prior dance experience necessary!

Led by Mynx d’Meanor
Choreography by Mynx d'Meanor & Lulu Bon Coup

Fishnet Follies School of Classic Burlesque was voted "Best School for Showgirls" in East Bay Express 2015 and 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." - DIABLO MAGAZINE
