Due to Covid-19 we are limiting the number of students to 10 per class. We require 6 students to run a program.
What are you doing in response to Covid-19?
We have restructured classes to ensure the safety of our students and staff. We are following the requirements of the Canadian Health Ministry and the Canadian Government. We will not dilute the learning, fun and confidence building that our programs are known for!

What is your Student to Instructor ratio?
We provide a 5:1 ratio.
What is my daughter required to provide?
We will provide each student with a workbook. This will help them track what their lessons are for each week so they can prepare for class. Items that will need to be provided include make-up kits and exercise attire. Each class level will receive a mini make-up kit and exercise kit for use in class.
Is there a Professional Photo Shoot during Programs?
Yes! Each student will have the opportunity to work with a professional photographer 3 times throughout the year. Once in December, March and May. You will receive 1 edited photo from each photo shoot. This photo will be selected bu the Program Director.
Is there a Fashion Show at the end of the Program?
Yes! Students will celebrate their year with a Professional Fashion Show taking place in May.
Do Programs focus heavily on the modelling industry?
Yes and no. We use modelling as an interactive tool to engage and inspire our campers. Our Little Girls, Pre Teen and Teen classes focus on confidence, self love, making friends and building healthy habits. During Programs, girls will enjoy a variety of activities including runway lessons, age appropriate make-up tutorials, hair styling, posing lessons, arts/crafts, safe group activities, photo shoots and more! Our Advanced and Elite classes focus more on the modelling industry as the students are older and have a more vested interested in getting involved in a modelling career.
Does my daughter need to wear heels?
Not necessarily. It is recommended that our Teens bring a pair of heels to wear. This will allow us to teach them how to properly walk in heels with grace, ease and most importably with confidence!
Does my daughter need to wear make-up?
Not necessarily. We will teach students about make-up. This will allow us to teach them how to properly apply their own make-up in a way that is age appropriate to them and based on the activity to which they require make-up (ie. Photo Shoots or Special Occasions). If they wish, we recommend that our students practice their make-up applications by wearing make-up to class each week as this is a safe environment to find tune their skills.
Program Cancellations Due To COVID-19
If a 2nd wave of Covid-19 occurs, classes will continue immediately online. No refunds will be issued.
Will my daughter be signed with your Agency once she has completed the Program?
Each student will be represented by GEMINI Models for 1 year (January 1st - December 31st), while they are enrolled in the program. While we would like to sign every student with our Agency, we are unable to do so. The goal of our programs is to give students an opportunity to learn about modelling, runway, posing and photo shoots, but more importantly to develop confidence, healthy habits, self love and build new friendships. If your daughter would like to get more involved in modelling, we recommend setting up a meeting with the Program Director at the end of the year.
