Now Accepting Applications to

Participate in Sheer Elegance No. 29

Open to young ladies 6 – 18 yrs old. Sign-up to take part in a unique arts and team-building experience


Get ready to “Walk That Isle!”

Set sail for Sheer Elegance No. 29, a stylistic sojourn featuring “Project Runway” alumni, celebrity escorts, exciting door prizes, awesome entertainment and a chance for our young women to roar. It all takes place on Saturday, December 9  in the Regency Room at the Hyatt Regency by the Arch, 315 Chestnut St., St. Louis, MO 63102. That day it’s all about the girls, with 20 high-school aged young women recognized for their academic, extra-curricular and community service achievements and 20 elementary-to-middle school girls taking part in a special thematic presentation.

Here is an overview of the two opportunities for young ladies to participate:

Teen Honorees: Ages 13-18

This is literally a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity (a teen can only be honored in the show once). Honorees are young women ages 13 to 18 who have demonstrated a commitment to academics, community service and extra-curricular participation either at Mathews-Dickey, in their school/community or both. Honorees will learn a dance as a team-building exercise that they will perform on the day of the event. On December 9, they will be escorted down the runway by community leaders, ranging from elected officials to the heads of cultural institutions, media personalities and CEOs. For this purpose, all the young women will receive a complimentary formal dress/shoes along with a dance costume. No prior involvement or experience is required, but current and prior members are given preferred consideration. Participants in the event qualify for community service hours.

Honorees must be able to attend eight weeks of personal development and choreography training by Best Talent Center leading up to their finale dance and of course be available to attend the event itself on December 9.
