Burlesque Workshop: Classic Fan Dance

A staple of burlesque: the flirty flutter of feather fans!

Designed for beginner students who want to get a feel for the iconic feather fans and how to manipulate them before making an investment in buying a pair of their own.

We will use the FIshnet Follies signature forced open fans (provided in class), which are lighter and easier on the hands and wrists for those just starting out.

We'll incorporate moves and transitions used in our classic fan dance routine to "Night Train", as well as other moves and poses to increase your fan dance vocabulary.


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

Led by Mynx d’Meanor.

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
