Striptease Solo Level 2: Building a Burlesque Solo Act! - Fishnet Follies
Striptease Solo Level 2: BUILDING A BURLESQUE SOLO ACT!
This series will build on the fundamental elements we learned in Level 1, and go through the step-by-step process of creating your own solo act!
We will work on the Fishnet Follies 3 C’s of burlesque performance: Charisma, Costume, and Choreography. Our goal is to create a solid act concept which you will execute, refine and polish in Level 3 private sessions.
This series involves in-depth discussions and practical salons on:
- Unique character and narrative ideas- Strengthening your stage presence- Costuming ideas and embellishing techniques- Interpreting music through movement / musicality
Each class is quite dynamic, as our discussions are tailored to individual students and their distinct ideas and questions!
This class is part discussion, part movement/interactive workshop. Students will receive a workbook & video lectures to help them through the process. Please bring a pen to take notes!
PREREQUISITE: Must have completed Chorus Choreography Level 1, Striptease Solo Level 1, or instructor approval.
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
