THE PRODUCER / THE FFORCE
MYNX D’MEANOR PRINCIPAL (Executive Producer / Artistic Director / Head Instructor)
Mynx d’Meanor is the FForce behind the Fishnet Follies. As director, Mynx creates theatrical, Busby Berkeley-inspired choreography, blending the best of classic and modern in innovative and intriguing ways.
Mynx instructs full-time at her School of Classic Burlesque, Oakland, California. Mynx is a “Queen- and King-Maker,” having trained several award-winning burlesque dancers and festival features. She also specializes in teaching every day people about the beauty and innovation in burlesque and how to effectively incorporate the influences of burlesque dance into their daily lives. Since 2009, Mynx has trained hundreds of women and men in her addictive and transformative classes. Mynx is known to many as their “burlesque mama,” providing a gateway to art and sensuality.
FISHNET FOLLIES was originally conceived by principal producer Mynx d’Meanor in San Diego (2008), as a platform to showcase the most sought-after burlesque soloists and troupes. Each show featured a different theme and a variety of local acts, with special guests including international headliners and performers from larger burlesque communities in the West Coast.
When Mynx moved back to San Francisco, FISHNET FOLLIES relaunched in 2010 with a hallmark of classic, Hollywood-glam aesthetic. International burlesque starlet Flame Cynders has jumped on board as an artistic partner, driving our original vision to new untold heights!
Since then, FISHNET FOLLIES has become a breeding ground and platform for the next generation– future international stars of burlesque!
