PEOPLE ARE TALKING ABOUT FISHNET FOLLIES!
Fishnet Follies and Mynx d’Meanor are as good as it gets for learning the beautiful art of Burlesque in the bay area. She is a pint sized pin up in the flesh that will teach you how to work it! Some of us (me) are a little shy,mechanical in movement perhaps, but being reminded that sass, sex appeal and strutting your stuff is a good thing, well it’s truly empowering. Take a class, try it out. weather you intend to use your newly learned skills in public or private ….. all women should do it. – Yelp review
I had Mynx DeMeanor and 2 of her dancers come and perform for my 40th birthday party. I specifically asked for traditional Fosse style numbers and they performed them with perfection! I would highly recommend her for any party where you want a burlesque show. Really good value for the money. – C.H., Yelp
“I love taking private lessons from Mynx D’Meanor. She is very observant and has a good eye for finding areas deserving improvement or just additional attention. She effectively works within your act idea, choreographic style, and act intentions. As such, recommendations and improvements are done within the style and parameters set by you. She excels at problem solving, transitions, and improving choppy or uncertain areas to create better act flow and more clear intentions. Taking an act to her is like taking a well-written story to a great editor. Her tweaks, edits, and guidance just serve to make it all the better.” – Red Velvet
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… – Diablo Magazine
‘If you want to start loving your body, teach it to move in ways you never thought it could…’ There’s no denying how much I’ve always *loved* to dance, but jumping way outside my comfort zone & taking the solo series with #fishnetfollies did SO much more than just teach me a style/genre of dance. It made me get to know my body, my rhythm… which (once I got the giggles out 😂) gave me a new kind of strength and confidence that truly makes me feel sexy and empowered in my skin. The icing is having the new creative outlet… choreography, costuming & rhinestoning, oh my! And the big, juicy cherry atop all this, without hesitation, is the AMAZING community I am so incredibly grateful to be a part of! So all you ladies (and now gents) who have thought and/or said to me all the things (that are exactly what I thought/said for years), I’m here to save you some time. Stop overthinking it! I assure you there will be something positive, and likely amazing, to experience from giving it a try! xoxo Reyna del Camino P.S. If you’re held back by the fear of performing publicly… STAAAHP! It’s not a requirement… but, you might surprise yourself! 😉
HIGHLIGHT: the burlesque dancers of Fishnet Follies! Please tell me you didn’t miss this striptease… on a boat… for a Yelp event! These ladies (and one gentleman) were amazing. – Alice T, Yelp
I love the instructor, Mynx d’Meanor. She really puts you at ease and makes the whole experience so much fun. It was great to let my hair down and tap into my sensual side. I would definitely recommend to Fishnet Follies to anyone interested in learning more about Burlesque. – Living Social coupon purchaser
Mynx D’Meanor was my Burlesque teacher for about 4 years now and has managed to push me into achieving quite some skill (or so I’d like to think) and impressive achievements. She had me performing solo with quality and fantastic audience feedback in less than half a year after starting to teach me. And it took her only three years to get me from no-dance-or-anything-experience-at-all to performing at Burlesque Hall of Fame in Las Vegas in the main competition, thereby winning the title “Best Boylesque” a.k.a. “King of Boylesque”. Mynx has vast experience in her craft, can teach all genders and uses a very subtle way of nudging you in the right direction. She can be very strict but usually makes learning and working with her great fun and definitely a very valuable and often transformative experience. I can’t thank her enough for how she has transformed me and I think the fabulous crop of ladies (and gents) she brought to stages all around the world now speaks for itself. – Harden Reddy
Mynx D’Meanor is an embodiment of classic burlesque strip tease. A true artist. I was amazed by the subtle and graceful finesse with which Mynx executed every movement – whether dancing, showing a little leg, or removing a garment. She’s a great model and teacher of the burlesque arts and I can’t wait to take more classes from her. – Gail Olson, student (San Diego)
I loved working with you so much and being apart of the Fishnet Follies! I had a blast performing and really learned a lot from you. You’re such a great teacher and I feel lucky to have gotten to work with you! My performance never would have been what it is without your guidance. – Gypsy Pearl
