How it began...
The starlet that would one day become the alluring Flame Cynders began her journey into performance by studying classical ballet, tap, and jazz dance beginning at the age of 4. Her love of dance and years of vocal training afforded her many opportunities to perform worldwide and gather a strong sense of style to call her own. She has graced cities such as New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Berlin, Milan, Manchester, and London with her performances.
As an exotic dancer in her early twenties, Flame developed a taste for cabaret-style dancing, making her evolution into becoming a burlesque performer a natural step along the way. In 2003, Flame auditioned to become a part of the classic burlesque group Big City Burlesque based out of her hometown of Atlanta, GA. Flame branched out to learn the tricks of the trade that would eventually take her on world tours. She has had an opportunity to compete in many festivals around the world. These include Miss Exotic World, Burlesque Hall of Fame, winning the second runner in the Battle Royal in Vancouver (2006), Toronto Burlesque Festival, Texas Burlesque Festival, second runner up in Viva Las Vegas 2007, and at Tease-O-Rama.
After a long performing adventure, she partnered with Mynx D’Meanor with Fishnet Follies Classic Burlesque Review and was the primary producer of sold-out shows in Los Angeles. As well as producing the shows in Los Angeles, she started and was the principal instructor at Fishnet Follies School of Burlesque Los Angeles.
