Walking the Runway!!
Wearing Cool Clothes!!
Getting Your Hair and Makeup Professionally Done!!
Who Wouldn’t Want to be Part of This Exciting Life?
Many successful models of all shapes and sizes appear in magazines, on television, in videos, and on the runways during fashion week. High fashion runway models have the most physical requirements, but local requirements for fashion models are not as strict.
Let’s keep it real…not everyone wears a size 6 or even a size 8. Full-figured models are needed on runways where they show fashions for plus-size clothing as well as in print ads. Age is also not a factor. Models are needed in all age groups.
Magazines and newspapers, not to mention television, are filled with ads that feature girls just like you who are sitting there wondering if you really have what it takes to be in the modeling business.
Has anyone ever told you have great eyes?
Or that you wear your clothes well?
How about that great personality of yours?
All these and much more are qualities of today’s top male models.
At Barbizon, male models take part in classes on photo movement, speech and social skills, grooming, acting and much more.
Not every guy who attends Barbizon has a goal of becoming a professional model. Many enroll just for the skills to help them in everyday life.
Have you ever been told that your child's smile
lights up a room?
Or that your child expresses him or herself well?
Or that your child is just plain adorable?

At Barbizon, children learn the same modeling and acting techniques used by today’s top child models and actors from how to audition, runway skills, proper speech & etiquette, social & grooming skills, acting, and much more.
Whether you've already written your Oscar acceptance speech, or you would be happy to star in a few local television commercials, Barbizon can help you develop the skills you'll need to make it happen!
Most of Barbizon’s Acting Program classes take place live and on-camera like you are in an actual studio taping your first scene. Classes touch on all aspects of the life in pictures and television from comedy, monologues, drama, how to go on an audition, and script reading. The other half of the classes put you ‘center stage’ on developing your proper stage presence and personality for specific roles.
