SCALA Models Academy has successfully graduated its second group of trainees as of August 23rd, 2014. Here are some reflections on the SCALA experience by the graduates.
One by one, all August 2014 graduates shared their insights, their thoughts and feelings about the intense three month course they went through.
**Attending SCALA SL academy was a very rewarding and insightful experience. My instructors encouraged me to bring the “real me” to the runway as far as styling. This meant pushing myself to take some risks but it worth it. They never discouraged they only offered constructive criticism which was very helpful. Runway training was awesome because I tend to be a bit nervous right before a show. But my instructor was as patient as possible with me and my fellow students. The encouragement I received in this part helped me to find some confidence and I felt better about walking and learning to move the right way on the catwalk.
I highly recommend this Academy program. You will definitely feel more confidence, as well as feeling more at ease about modeling and styling. Thank you Sea, Zaara, and Krypt for allowing me to transform into a better model. – Adrienne Bouevier
My experience training at SCALA Models Academy was one of the most amazing I’ve had on SL to-date. The instructors are all very committed and serious about what they do. The classes are well thought out and follow a logical order.
Each instructor I had was very well prepared for class and I found myself looking forward to my time there each week. The staff is friendly and very fair.
They critique you but only in order to teach you and push you to think outside your comfort level. I think that’s the most valuable lesson I will take away from SCALA. They set me free to be more adventurous with my look, less generic and more daring and I’m sure I will continue to grow, experimenting with my style and practicing the craft of modeling with the skills I learned there.
There was no clock watching, each class ran as long as it needed to, if someone needed a question answered or additional practice or help it was given freely by the instructors. They are very particular in educating models from the most simple and basic things to the more advanced. In this way they build a model from the bottom up and send the well educated finished product of their tutelage out into SL with very solid skills. The posing classes forced you to look at posing in a whole new way, the shaping classes was absolutely eye opening for me and the runway classes….nerve-wracking but fun! The experience is one of bonding with your fellow students and I made many wonderful friends during my time there. If you have the opportunity to work with this amazing academy do so – you won’t regret it! I would have paid twice the fee charged for the top quality experience I had there. I am now confident and ready to step into the SL world of modeling, prepared to take it by storm! See you on the runway! – AJ – AriannaJasmine
SCALA Modeling Academy has been both a pleasurable and demanding experience. When accepted prepare for hard work and lots of it. The Instructors are very demanding but will work with you as long you show the effort. I learned all facets of modeling-ethics, styling, casting, posing walking, and runway-runway-runway, did I mention runway? I felt funny being the only guy in the class but we jelled into a great team and did graduate. The team of instructors are the best Zaa, Seashell, and Kryptonia. all of who are caring, loving, demanding and will work you hard. If you want a challenge, SCALA Modeling Academy is the School for you. – Frank Conti
My experience training at SCALA Models Academy was a very pleasant one. I enjoyed the classes very much and I feel that SCALA definitely has a step above the rest of the modeling agencies in SL. The instructors are very knowledgeable of the subject and available for questions outside of class. The classes are long enough to allow time for all students to understand and perfect the lesson before the next class. – Gin Rayna
SCALA ACADEMY has been a great adventure and human experience with a wonderful challenge.
I have met teachers and instructors with a different point of view on fashion and on the model’s attitude.
Teachers are demanding, pushing you hardly in my mind and training, but they also gave you a lot in return. They follow you closely in your evolution.
I have discovered great models and friends, ready to help. Thank you to Arianna, Adrienne, Gin, Widel and for sure my sweet partner Frank who has always supported me.
All them have made me grow and make me more self confident in who I am and in what I can do.
Let me thank again the teachers for their patience and all what that they have gave to me.
A particular thought for Zaara, so human and great in heart. I will never forget the great shaping class.
Thanks to Kryptonia to have push me so hard on the runaway.
Thanks to Sea for the great lesson on poses and for the great video.
SCALA ACADEMY, the school where to be for models who want become real models! – Rea Quar
