Professional dancer and model, Karla Garcia, owner of Sol Dance Center in Astoria, Queens is holding a modeling workshop for teen girls and women in order to promote healthy body image. This workshop, the “Solettes Modeling Academy”, will stress the importance of feeling confident with one’s body as well as being healthy rather than fitting the size 2 model “look”. The workshop features a 4-week intensive program in which the students will learn how to walk the runway, pose for pictures, explore their look, build their character and more. The workshop will culminate with a professionally done photoshoot so that the students can take home what they learned during their time at Sol. Reservations required. “No one should feel like they have to look a certain way,” says Karla. “Feel free, love yourself!” Come join Karla and the rest of her team starting Sunday, November 10th at 2pm for this wonderful opportunity to express yourself through modeling.
