      You’re One Step Away from Becoming a Paid Professional Model

      There’s a model within each of us… we just need to learn to unleash her. It can be tough to even find her in group classes or sitting in audition waiting rooms with others.

      These situations don’t create confidence nor make us stronger. For many of us, it buries our confidence and we feel weak, sometimes worthless.

      I’m here to help you unleash your inner and outer model. To show you how to love yourself – not just your appearance – but who you are at your core.
      If you don’t think you fit in, don’t think you’re pretty enough, don’t think you’re tall enough.. you’ll always be right about yourself.

      However, if you change those thoughts, if you remember that Art sees beauty in everything and everyone, you’ll find you’re more than a model, you’re a one-of-a-kind icon.

      A Few Questions For You:

      • Not getting any callbacks from castings or go-sees?

      • Keep getting false promises and you don’t know who to trust?

      • Being pressured to fit a certain mold that you don’t feel comfortable with?

      • Being told your too short, too fat, too light, too dark?

      • Having trouble gaining consistent income from modeling?

      1-on-1, Private Model Coaching is you and me. That’s it. I’ll teach you how to succeed in the competitive yet amazing world of Modeling! So…

      Who Am I?

      I’m Runway Coach Mandy Dyonne. In addition to being a model for 10+ years, including walking as a national and international model for fashion shows like New York Fashion Week, I finished Dance Academy with a Bachelor’s Degree in Classical Ballet and earned both Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Psychology. I’m not only well-versed in confidence and business through my education, but also through my years of experience.

      I’ve coached models for Elite Model Look, NEXT, The Society, and more. I’ve collaborated with Alexander Wang, Michael Kors, and Calvin Klein. I’m also a runway coach and judge for Holland’s Next Top Model.

      What Will You Learn In Your Private Model Coaching?

      The number one key to Modeling is confidence. I know it takes time, I’ve been there, but it is the golden goose to success — especially in Modeling. It’s the reason some Models, who we might not consider more attractive or as tall or a “typical” Model succeed. Confidence is energy and it spreads like beautiful ripples in a pond. It’s everything.

      That’s what makes this Private Coaching so special because, in addition to confidence, I’m going to teach you the Ins & Outs of the business side of Modeling as well as:

      • Walking a Runway Powerfully and Confidently
      • Perfecting Posture and Undeniable Poise
      • Compiling Incredible Portfolio Pictures
      • Controlling Facial Expressions to Convey Tone
      • Conquering Castings with Confidence
      • Succeeding in Modeling Using Instagram

      Your Model side is within you. She’s ready to be seen. Together, let’s unleash her upon the world!
