Pos­ing up a storm

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - NEWS -

WANT to learn how to walk the walk?

HDSE Mod­els In­ter­na­tional, an agency based on the Coffs Coast, is host­ing classes with vis­it­ing in­ter­na­tional cat­walk/pos­ing coach Mandy Dy­onne.

“Mandy has worked with mod­els and celebri­ties, in­clud­ing the Kar­dashi­ans, and this is an op­por­tu­nity for lo­cal kids to get in­struc­tion from a qual­i­fied cat­walk pos­ing coach,” Jay Jones of HDSE Mod­els said.

“You get to walk your walk and have a qual­i­fied cat­walk pos­ing coach give you help. At the last class we had an 11-year-old boy who af­ter some coach­ing was told to ‘walk like you own the place’. We turned on the mu­sic and he stuck his chest out and re­ally sur­prised us all, es­pe­cially his mother.

“Classes are suit­able for girls and boys from eight years old, and de­signed for any­body who wants to learn how to walk the cat­walk, im­prove pos­ture and self-con­fi­dence.”

Mandy stud­ied at the Am­s­ter­dam Uni­ver­sity of the Arts as a dancer, chore­og­ra­pher and in­struc­tor.

She has coached mod­els from Elite Model Look, One Man­age­ment New York, Fu­sion New York, Silent New York and has col­lab­o­rated with Alexan­der Wang and Em­po­rio Ar­mani.

She has walked as an in­ter­na­tional model for fash­ion shows in­clud­ing New York Fash­ion Week. Af­ter achiev­ing her master’s in psy­chol­ogy, she im­mersed her­self in coach­ing.

With Mandy, you can ex­pect to learn how to pre­pare for cast­ings or to get signed to an agency, learn run­way con­fi­dence, de­velop good pos­ture and a pow­er­ful walk, how to pose for a photo shoot and other dos and don’ts of how to be­come a model.

The classes are held at the Pro­fes­sional Cen­tre, Park Ave, and places are lim­ited to 10. The cost is $75, book on 6659 2069. For gen­eral in­quiries, phone 0429 453 948.
