The Prom and Pageant Place offers Pageant Training
with one-on-one pageant instruction
Classes are designed to help you understand what the judges are looking for and how to present yourself on stage and in the interview. Classes are for one hour and are held at the store after regular business hours. All classes are taught by the store owner who has competed in many local and state pageants. She currently helps plan, choreograph and judge pageants including Miss Alabama Outstanding Teen and Miss Alabama Pageant preliminaries. She can help you with anything pageant related from beauty walk and interview, to talent, swimsuit, even opening number.
We are happy to announce that Pageant Training classes are also now being taught by Courtney Porter, Miss Alabama 2011.
