    • Walk to the center of the stage, stop and do a front stance (one hand or both hands on hip front pose), then a full turn and do a back stance (one hand or both hands on hip back pose), then turn to the front again (hands on hip) and face the judges, and then proceed to the side of the stage. No lewd acts are permitted. The length of time allowed is 15 seconds.
  3. The head judge then directs selected competitors through the callouts, where the selected competitors are compared against each other in the front and back turns, as well as the “Walk”. The number and placement of competitors in the callouts is at the discretion of the head judge.
  4. The “Walk” is described as follows:
    • Start by facing the judges (one hand or both hands on hip front pose). Under the direction of the head judge, turn 180°, pause, walk towards the back of the stage, pause, turn 180°, pause, and walk towards the front of the stage and face the judges.
