CEG Pageant Workshops:


A few times a year, CEG hosts group workshops covering various competition areas, including interviews, onstage presence, walking, posing, turning, microphone use for introduction and on-stage questions, makeup application, and wardrobe consultation.  

Class size is limited to ensure individualized attention and effective coaching. Because our classes are fast-paced, interactive, and intensive, the minimum recommended age for classes is 13 years old. Advanced registration and payment are required to hold your spot. Workshops are held at CEG Studios.
