10 out of 13 candidates vying for Miss Esstic, have taken part this April 27 in the second of a series of training sessions geared at refining skills ahead of the competition. Under the coordination of the day’s coach Oriane Fouda, concerns such as choreography, steps, smiles and body composure were reviewed.
12: 50am this Saturday, chairs and tables usually at the middle of the journalism two hall of the Advanced School of Mass Communication(ASMAC), have been displaced to create a five metres long and three metres wide runway.
Oriane Fouda, President of the Miss Esstic Organization Committee calls the girls on the makeshift runway. Though not all of them are present, rehearsal needs to commence.
The incessant sounds, emanating from the clacking high heels touching the floor in a cadence determined by the music’s rhythm, can be heard.
Dressed in jean trousers, skirts, crop tops, singlet, or t-shirts, these ladies catwalk on the runway.
“One step after the other. You are not walking appropriately, walk like a model, please smile. If you want to be a model; smile like one” Fouda comments as they pass one after the other.
With the help of the assistant coach, Ingride Otambo, member of the organizing committee, the choreography to be displayed during the D-Day is taught.
Errors are made, complains are heard, but all needs to perfect. Some are asked to restart.
Afro-B featuring Wizkid Joanna or Ciara’s Freakie are the two songs used by these young girls, all students of ASMAC, to either walk or dance.
Seated at the tail end of the runway is Arielle Atouga, one of the few spectators present in the hall. A friend of hers is one of the contestants. ‘I’m here to encourage her, she needs it. It is her first experience, I can’t let her down”.
“It’s the first ever miss competition in ESSTIC. So, we are still to determine the calendar of the competition, and how things will look like, we are still considering many aspects. Surely, the event will be a success. But at the moment, I can assure you that, votes will not be online.” Fouda disclosed at the end of the training session.
At 3:30 pm, a group photograph puts an end to the close to three hours practice session.
The rendezvous is taken for next Saturday.
