This year's pageant was nothing short of wonderful! I had four clients competing and they all did an incredible job. It was a joy to watch them grow, learn, and have fun! Their success pageant weekend is largely in part to their dedication and hard work prior to pageant weekend. Many of my clients are dancers, so I like this analogy: Would you go to a dance competition having never prepared or practiced? Of course not! So why would you go to a pageant having never prepared or practiced? Arriving to the pageant with your ducks in a row, knowing that you have rehearsed and planned everything as you'd like it to go, will translate to success and a better experience.
Another special part of this pageant weekend was watching my client, Grace Nester, crown her successor (which to our delight was my client, Caleigh Proulx!). Grace has been an incredible Miss Minnesota Princess! She blew everyone away at nationals with her countless accolades and served her state with grace. She raised hundreds of dollars for Pet Rescue and continues to do so even after her reign. A special shout out also goes to my dancer, Natalie Engh, on an incredible year as Miss Minnesota Jr. PreTeen. Natalie is a natural- in dance, in pageants, in theatre- and a sweet, lovely young lady!
Congrats to all of my pageant clients- I am so proud of you! Caleigh Proulx, was blessed to be crowned the new Miss Minnesota Princess, along with winning Casual Wear, Talent, and many other awards (listed below)! Olivia D. was 1st runner up out of 100+ girls- what a huge accomplishment! She also scored in the top five for all of her optionals (listed below). This was Cerise D. and Jamie B.'s 1st pageants and they had a great time as best friends competing at NAM! Jamie was a state finalist and Cerise was 1st runner up Photogenic and 1st runner up Best Resume. Way to go, girls!
