As a former dancer, I always found pageant turns, onstage walking, and runway/ramp walks to be one of my favorite areas. One of the most basic turns I cover in this video is the double-half turn as well as the more advanced step, the “pageant twirl.”
Queens and winners spend lots of time practicing these steps to commit to muscle memory. But for a newbie, simply watching Miss (Enter Country Here) do her walk Miss Universe can be too difficult to learn because it’s either too fast, the camera angles cut too quickly, or the gowns block the foot steps.
I’m happy to share my technique and break down the footwork in this video geared towards beginners and new contestants.
