Etiquette is the complex network of rules that govern good behavior and our social and business interactions. As the years go by this matter is always evolving and changing as society changes. It reflects our cultural norms, generally accepted ethical codes, and the rules of various groups we belong to. We show our students the importance of how it helps us show respect and consideration to others and makes others glad that we are with them. Our final goal is create and help our students become true ladies.
PAGEANTRY & INTERVIEW
We teach our students to have self-confidence.
They would be able to go to interviews with a stranger and talk on stage in front of hundreds of people without being scared or shy. In addition, have a presentable look. Pageant interviews help our students prepare to dress for a professional setting and gives them skills on what is appropriate for such a setting. Runway and posture is a must for our students to learn. Stage presentation is very important. Confidence and a great attitude would make the judges and audience fall in love with them.
