BEFORE PAGEANT FAQs

CRASH COURSE

The Crash Couse is an optional practice event with the pageant staff. It will take place on day 1 of your pageant. This is your chance to practice with the choreographers, ask questions, and get inside tips! 

The cost of the Crash Course Workshop is $25. We offer this workshop to contestants so they will feel prepared and have another opportunity to practice on stage. The teachers of the Crash Course have competed and/or judged at the local, state, and national levels! These coaches pride themselves on connecting with each contestant along with helping her feel “ready” for the exciting weekend ahead!

While the skills learned at the Crash Course Workshop will help you excel at pageant events overall, emphasis is placed on posture, good grooming, etiquette, stage presence, dressing for success, and much more! By participating, the techniques you will learn in the Crash Course will benefit you throughout your life, no matter what career path you choose. 
In short, our Crash Course offers more than just “pageant” advice. We teach young ladies lessons they will carry with them every day!

*The Get Acquainted Party will follow the Crash Course Workshop and is FREE to attend!

TICKETS

Tickets are only needed for the pageant finale.  All the other events are free for the audience to attend. The most common question we get about tickets is in reference to escorts. Remember, we do not use escorts during the pageant finale. So if you escort from the night before will be attending the finale, they will need a ticket too. Go here for more information about finale tickets.
