Recently voted the “Best New Nightclub” in the nation by Nightclub & Bar magazine, FLUXX is the only local player to offer a true taste of the dance-centric Las Vegas club scene right here in San Diego. And if you’ve been seduced on the dance floor by the all-powerful Cryogen Liquid Nitrogen System and partied in style with the Champagne Robot, you’ll probably agree.
But while locals flock to this ever-changing, illustrious adult playground for plush VIP bottle service, state-of-the-art lighting and sound, and impeccable service, FLUXX sets itself apart from other venues by captivating the masses with aesthetically pleasing performances and engaging entertainment. You know what I’m talking about – the smokin’ hot FLUXX Dancers.
FLUXX frequenters will unquestionably attest that these femme fatale stars are far from the quintessential go-go dancers. If you have yet to witness these ravishing beauties in their natural habitat, then you’ve clearly been missing out. From stunning aerial feats to supremely sexy choreographed routines, these hot ladies are beyond hardcore. We sat down with FLUXX’s leading performers to get the low-down on their rigorous training, how they stay in such phenomenal shape, and what makes dancing at the hottest nightclub in the nation so thrilling.
Get to know the sultry vixens who rock the stage at FLUXX in this week’s exclusive industry spotlight.
DiscoverSD: Tell us a little about your dancing background.
Chloe Hemmat: I've been dancing my whole life. I’ve done everything from gymnastics and jazz to modern dance and the hip hop dance team at my high school.
Eileen Soukbandith: Dancing has always been a part of me since I was a little girl. I haven’t had any professional training, unless you count my high school years as a cheerleader. Our coach was pretty awesome; he choreographed dance routines for a few well known music artists. I just have rhythm…I can say that right? Well, I wouldn’t be working at FLUXX if I didn’t!
Janey Bolina: I don't have a strong dance background like most girls, I've done ballet for a year or two when I was younger and dabbled in Hula/Tahitian for two to three years after I finished high school. I've always been able to pick up on choreography quickly and can freestyle easily.
Marin Fisher: I started dancing when I was four. I trained in jazz, tap, ballet, and modern through high school and while I attended SDSU I took hip-hop and modern/jazz classes at Culture Shock dance studio here in San Diego.
DSD: How did you get into the San Diego nightlife industry and how long have you been a go-go dancer?
CH: Well I moved to San Diego six years ago. My first venue dancing at was the W Hotel, then Aubergine. I have been go-go dancing since I lived in LA. In total, I’ve been dancing for about eight years.
ES: It’s a funny story actually. I was going out a lot and dancing up a storm just for fun. During that time, my two girlfriends were go-go dancing at the hotspot (we won’t disclose the name of the club because it is embarrassing to say now!) and one had to go out of town so she asked if I could take her place. I was hesitant, but got talked into doing it. Five years later, I’m still your nightlife entertainment.
JB: A girlfriend of mine said she always thought I would be a good go-go dancer. One night I saw a group of go-gos and I decided right then and there that I could do exactly what they do. The next day, I was emailing tons of promoters and groups to try to find my way in. Someone gave me a break, and the rest is history.
MF: I have only been go-go dancing for a little over a year now. I actually got into the industry by luck! My friends were working with RMD before they opened and heard about the open go-go audition. They told me about it, and I auditioned and got the job.
DSD: There are so many new bars and clubs opening up all the time in San Diego. What makes dancing at FLUXX more unique than other San Diego nightclubs? What do you do to elevate the vibe even further?
CH: FLUXX is the best nightclub in the nation. I wouldn't want to dance anywhere else and I can probably speak for the rest of the girls when I say that. What we do at FLUXX is completely different than anywhere else in San Diego or maybe even Southern California. I think our dance team at FLUXX is different than anywhere else in the world.
ES: FLUXX is not like any clubs I have ever danced at. I definitely feel like a performer there and not just a girl you set on a box. Not only does FLUXX change their theme of the club monthly, but they really go all out in terms of costumes, décor, and set design. I tend to elevate the vibe by having the highest energy when I dance – you have to feel the music and hit it with every move you make. Since working at FLUXX, I feel like a dancer, actress, and aerialist. FLUXX is unique in the sense that we have this crazy energy once you walk into the door, you never know who is there or can be there.
JB: What makes FLUXX different from other venues is that the entire club transforms, even to the tiniest details. We, as the dancers, are center stage of it all so it's important for us to be high energy dancers. And with all the amazing DJs that come through FLUXX, it makes our jobs that much easier.
MF: Dancing at FLUXX is unique because there are always new themes. Each theme brings new costumes, props, and dancing. We always come up with a new opening dance with choreography and music to fit the theme to elevate the vibe even further. Not only that, but we have also added aerial arts into the mix with the hoop and silks.
DSD: Far beyond a themed party, FLUXX transforms the entire club to reflect the current theme, including employee costumes, entertainment choices, and every last detail of décor. What has been your favorite theme at FLUXX so far and how did it inspire your choreography?
CH: My choreography is inspired by the theme and vibe...however our in-between theme dance routine is pure creativity. Sid Vicious mixes all our performance tracks...he is responsible for the beats you hear! I just pick the songs. My favorite theme was Fetish. The "Bed" routine and also the Coffin routine for Mysterium have been my favorites.
ES: My favorite theme has to be Primal because we were really able to let out our wildness. The dancers’ costumes were a different animal every night and we had this awesome bamboo cage that we were able to hang from, climb on and go ballistic in. It really made me feel like a caged animal. Not to mention, we installed a huge net above the main bar and we would go in it and just crawl above the crowd. It was pretty awesome.
JB: Hands down, my favorite theme was Fetish. Chloe and I opened up the night to a performance on a four poster bed in the center of the dance floor. As always, FLUXX gives us great props for us to play with and figuring out choreography is never difficult. Plus we always like to throw in sections of freestyle to showcase our own individual personalities. We also had fun little toys like whips, feathers, paddles and body paint to play with. You can never go wrong with two chicks and body paint!
MF: I would definitely say that Mysterium was my favorite theme. It was so much fun choreographing the dance with the coffin. I think it was really surprising to people when they saw two girls come out of the huge coffin. I think it really caught people off guard and gave the dance a huge “wow” factor.
DSD: Local party-goers have witnessed some extremely impressive aerial stunts and acrobatics incorporated into your choreography. Tell us a little about your personal training process. How long does it take you to learn these choreographed acts, and how does it set your dancing style apart?
CH: We all had one-hour sessions with a professional aerialist and after that we trained and practiced every chance we got to dance on the hoop and silks. The choreographed routine we do with 2 dancers took us about an hour to come up with. It came somewhat naturally. Getting used to being on the hoops and silks really made us stronger dancers not only physically but mentally. What we do at FLUXX is not what I consider "go-go" dancing. We are performers. We do choreographed shows/routines to every theme and also in-between the themes. I think what sets us apart from other clubs is that we dance with/on props, we do aerial dancing/stunts and also choreographed routines on the aerial props.
ES: First off, Thank you! It definitely takes some balls and practice. We were fortunate enough to have FLUXX hire a professional to come in and teach the stunts. We are still learning. Our choreographed routines usually take about a month and I think we tend to bring sexy, seductive, fun, uniformed acts to the table. Whatever the theme, and whatever props we use, we try to bring those qualities out for the best show that will get the crowd engaged in our acts.
JB: I took very naturally to the hoop and each week I would add something new to my repertoire by pure experimentation. You definitely have to be gutsy to try new things while you're that high up in the air! For the aerial silks, we had an instructor come in to show us the proper base technique and a couple basic moves. All in all, I think you have to be naturally inclined to the hoops and silks, have grace and a lot of upper-body strength.
MF: The training with the aerial arts has been really fun. We had a professional come in to show us a few basic moves, and the rest we came up with on our own. It was a lot of trial and error. Once we came up with some cool moves we put them together to be a choreographed piece. I think the aerial performances definitely add a whole different aspect to our dancing and choreography so it’s not just the normal “go-go” routine.
DSD: Alright, we’re dying to know. What’s your secret to keeping a slim and sexy physique?
CH: All the dancing. I also love to do Bikram yoga and cardio on the elliptical when I get the chance.
ES: You’re probably not going to believe me, but I don’t have a secret. I think it’s 80% genetics and 20% active. I try to go to the gym at least twice a week, make healthy food choices as much as I can, and make sure to dance my heart out every weekend at FLUXX.
JB: I'm the worst person to ask about diet and exercise because I eat everything that's "bad" for you and I hardly make it out to the gym. Dancing is my cardio, so I suggest downloading a mixtape by both my favorite DJs – Sid Vicious and Cobra – get in front of a mirror, and dance your little booty off! But when I do go to the gym, I prefer kickboxing at HBUTC. I like learning how to kick some butt while the trainers whoop mine into shape!
MF: Dancing! It has always kept me in shape, but I do go to the gym every day that I don’t dance. I am also working on my Pilates certification so my workouts are infused with a lot of Pilates. I also do an hour of hard cardio on the Elliptical and/or Stairmaster, and then I do different Pilates exercises to help with my strength, flexibility, and balance. On days that I dance I usually do a half hour of light cardio with a lot of stretching.
DSD: When you’re not working at FLUXX, where do you enjoy partying in San Diego?
CH: I don't really consider myself too much of a "partier" but when I do you can find me at Side Bar.
ES: I keep it in the family – Side Bar of course! But it’s a rare sighting if you see me partying.
JB: I'm at FLUXX every single weekend, so I don't really get to "play" very often. But honestly, if I wasn't working in the industry, the first place to go on my list would be FLUXX.
MF: I love Side Bar on their industry night! There is a fun crowd, great vibe, and they always have awesome DJs.
