San Francisco Bay Area’s bite-sized burlesque sensation! Mynx d’Meanor is the creator, director/producer, and head instructor of Fishnet Follies Classic Burlesque Revue (Oakland / San Francisco Bay Area). Dazzling audiences for over 10 years, Mynx d’Meanor is known for her versatility– from cheeky “hip pop”, dramatic theatrics, to sultry, slow burn performances.
As director of Fishnet Follies, Mynx d’Meanor creates theatrical, Busby Berkeley-inspired choreography, presented in innovative ways that are relevant to modern audiences.
Based in Oakland, California, Mynx is a full-time instructor running her own School of Classic Burlesque.

BRIEF HISTORY OF MYNX
Mynx d’Meanor began her career in the SF Bay Area, but shook up San Diego’s burlesque scene when she created Fishnet Follies in 2008. Fishnet Follies productions showcased international stars such as Catherine D’Lish and Mimi LeMeaux, and united local performers with popular shows such as COMIC STRIP! for San Diego Comic Con Weekend.
Returning to the Bay in 2010, Mynx continues to produce and teach Fishnet Follies Classic Burlesque Revue (Diablo Magazine “Best of the East Bay 2011”), partnering with LA-based Flame Cynders. In 2012, Mynx was a Reader’s Choice nominee for 7×7 Magazine’s “Hot 20”.

Mynx has developed Fishnet Follies into a full-time school, having taught hundreds of women from all over the Bay Area the art of striptease and group dance choreography. The Fishnet Follies revolving “Student Army” has over 30 “active” members at any given time, and the co-ed Fishnet Follies troupe boasts over a dozen feature soloists, up-and-coming starlets, and dedicated production staff. Such diverse talents are showcased every month at “The Garter Room” at Legionnaire Saloon– a burlesque gem in the heart of Oakland!
Mynx is also a regular cast member of notable San Francisco shows Hubba Hubba Revue and Barbary Coast Burlesque, and continues to perform throughout the Bay Area and beyond!
