We offer the pageant prep to contestants so they feel prepared, have an opportunity to practice, and get advice and instruction. The teachers of the pageant prep have competed and/or judged on the local, state, and national levels!! These coaches pride themselves on connecting with each contestant along with helping you feel “ready” for the exciting pageant weekend ahead!!
The pageant prep is included in your sponsor fee! You will be taught all the necessary skills for pageant weekend including how to use a microphone effectively, modeling techniques, interviewing and speaking skills, and much more!
You will learn and practice Formal Wear, Personal introduction, and Interview. As you practice the pageant prep teacher will fill out a report card for you so you know what you need to work on to prepare for pageant weekend.
