Education is the foundation for any susseccful endevour, and this is true for modeling as well. Of course, you can "fake it till you make it", but if you want to bypass common mistakes that can prevent you from moving forward, a little information will go a long way to ensure you leave a good impression with your clients, colleagues and peers.
Unlike traditional modeling schools approach to providing this information, I prefer to give you options that allow you to customize your education to what will mostbenefit you. There is no need to pay for lessons on how to do something you already know how to do and I want you to walk away with tangible evidence of the skills you've obtained.

Individual Runway Lesson
Having been the model coordinator for Denver Fashion Week, I have taught hundreds of models how to walk properly, with grace and confidence. Models make walking the runway look easy, but they put time into mastering the steps, stride, pivots and poses to make it look that way. These are skills that can be learned, even if you trip on your own feet walking down a sidewalk. Get yourself ready for the next audition and stand out in the crowd. All models, male and female, tall to petite benefit from being able to crush the catwalk. In one hour, I will teach you how to get of on a good foot.

You organize the group, I will give them all the information they would receive in a private lesson with the benefit of comradery and good memories with their friends.
