The Interview is hands-down the most important phase of competition in the vast majority of pageants. Even if the Interview does not comprise the majority of your final score, the impression you make in the Interview will carry through and affect your score in all other phases of competition. Whether your interview is a 12-minute session with a panel of judges, or 2-minute one-on-one interviews with 6 separate judges, We will teach you the skills to control the interview and leave the judges wanting more.Paperwork:
Aside from a head shot, your paperwork is the first point of contact the judges have with you. Before you actually meet, the judges see a sheet of paper that represents YOU. This paperwork will help the judges form questions to ask you in the interview, but more importantly, they will form an impression of your accomplishments, goals and level of preparedness to hold the title. Your paperwork must shine! We offer a complete Application Consultation and an Application Suggestions session to make your application stand out above the rest. Coaching/paperwork covers all aspects of paperwork for each pageant including platform preparation and development. Self Confidence/Life Coaching:
The key to appearing confident, knowledgeable and in-control is being mentally prepared for each phase of competition. We will teach you to harness the excitement and nerves that accompany pageant competition and place that energy into preparing for any question or situation. You cannot predict what the judges will ask, but you CAN learn to think on your feet and control the focus of the interview. We also teach life skills in form of life coaching during this process. Modeling:
The onstage competitions (evening gown, swimsuit, casual wear, etc.) are your chance to project confidence, poise and stage presence. We will help you develop these skills plus teach you how to walk, pose and connect with the judges from onstage.Hair & Make-Up:
Part of developing your confidence is feeling you have "the look." We will help you select the right Hair and Make-Up styles for the pageant system in which you are competing - styles that suit your personality and accentuate your natural beauty.Wardrobe:
The young woman makes the dressÖnot the other way around! Learn what you need to know to choose the right wardrobe for you for all phases of competition and the appropriate look for your pageant. We will teach you how to highlight all your greatest assets and minimize anything you don't want noticed. Talent:
It's important to understand that the pageant talent competition is judged very differently than a dance, vocal or other specialized competition. We have experience advising dancers, singers, instrumentalists, actresses and everything in between to perfect their talent for pageant competition.Comprehensive Training Can Include:
* Effective Public Speaking/ Introductions
* Personal Interview with Judges
* Stage Presentation/Modeling
* Make-up & Wardrobe
* Physical Fitness
* Photo Presentation
* Filling out forms correctly
* Mock Pageant
What are people saying... With just one look, Kim Gravel can spot young girls who have the ability to excel in the world of pageantry. That is exactly what Kim did for my daughter, London Taylor. Kim encouraged London to consider pageants the first time they met. London entered her first pageant and Kim prepared London by coaching her in the areas of wardrobe and gowns, modeling/walking, interviewing, make-up, hair, talent, courting the judges and building her confidence. Kim has proven herself as a professional results oriented pageant coach, as London won five out of six categories and the title in her first pageant. Kim continues to coach London and constantly reminds her that there is no limit to her potential in pageantry and life.
Pageant Mom Kim is tough and expects a lot out of my daughter. She would rather go to pageant coaching than out with her friends. The skills she is learning from Kim will not only help her in pageants but will help guide her through life! Stephanie Garland
Pageant Mom Ms. Kim is like my second mom. She is my biggest fan.
Pageant Contestant Kim is the expert in developing young talent. Her God given ability to enable young girls to be their true authentic self is what makes ďThe Pageant PlaceĒ program unique. Much like the sport of baseball Kim gets into the mental aspect of competing and draws from an almost spiritual place in each of the girls. My daughter was forever changed by working with Kim.
