BURLESQUE GROUP DANCE CHOREOGRAPHY: "RUSSIAN STYLE!"
(Level 2 Dancers)
"Boom Boom! Yeah!" The internet meme may have come and gone, but we can never get tired of this fun, high-energy, crowd pleasing dance! Also: Possibly the longest tassel twirling we've ever done in a group routine!
We're going to burn those winter holiday calories in this sexy high-energy dance routine!
In this series, we will learn choreography for "RUSSIAN STYLE!"-- one of the sexy-silliest Fishnet Follies acts ever! We put a "FFollies twist" on the dance meme, and yes, we still incorporate Busby Berkeley-inspired chorus lines.
- Friday, January 13th (Mynx's Birthday!!!) with Fishnet Follies at Hubba Hubba Revue: Soviet Union show!*
- Thursday, February 2nd with Fishnet Follies at The Garter Room (2-year anniversary)!
* Performance is optional and subject to instructor approval.
* Additional rehearsals and costume costs may apply.
- Tassel pasties
- Boots/shoes you can *bounce* in!
Detailed costume information will be shared in class. Additional tutorial videos will also be shared with students to supplement studio instruction.
We're going at it hard core! We only have 5 WEEKS to make it happen!
This series starts at LEVEL 2, due to a very short and rigorous"crash course" style rehearsal and costuming schedule, high-energy style, tassel twirling, and more advanced formations.
PREREQUISITE: Must have taken Chorus 1, Solo 1, or the Crash Course Workshop and comfortable with taking quick directions and working in group formations.
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 women of all shapes, sizes and backgrounds, 18 years and older. No prior dance experience necessary!
Led by Mynx d’Meanor.
Tues / DECEMBER 13, 2016 - JANUARY 10, 2017 / 8:10PM - 9:40PM

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
