Walking the runway puts models on the spot. While you may only be as good as your last turn, choreography routines can help to give confidence and direction to new up and coming model, or established models looking to perfect their craft for high end campaigns or events.
Here are a few tips to get you on the road to your inner diva.
Think tall. All models should think tall. While walking, stand up straight leaning slightly back so your legs can go first. Keep your toes pointed forward, so they aren’t turned out. Then walk with one foot in front of the other as if walking on a tightrope.
Most people think you need to do a lot of hip swaying. Your hips will move naturally so exaggeration isn’t necessary.
Let your arms swing naturally. However, take care they are not too stiff or have big movement. The clothing you have on will help you decide what to do with your hands, you may need to hold something or stick one in a pocket.
Be commanding and flirty. This will make you fun for the audience.
You should never look down. Always look straight ahead at the cameras or pick a spot on the wall ahead of you so you won’t get distracted by anything else distracting around you.
