Miss World 2012, Rehearsals for the big show begin!
There’s never a dull moment here with Miss World and today is certainly no exception. The contestants are starting rehearsals for the final show of the competition.
The contestants practice arriving on stage
Hugely popular, this event will be seen by a global audience of millions so practice makes perfect for our participants.
Divided into two groups, half of the contestants rehearse in the morning and half rehearse in the afternoon. Luckily, as the first group ladies gathered in the impressive Ordos Ballroom their unbounded enthusiasm meant that proceedings went with a flourish.
The national contest winners for Chile and Argentina concentrate on their steps
A highly skilled and motivational choreographer was on-hand to direct operations and as the rehearsal progressed you began to get a glimpse of how the final show is going to look. Without giving too much away, it’s going to be sensational!
The participants from Hong Kong, China and Macau China take their postions
The contestants had to memorise a large number of steps, as well as incorporate sweeping movements and make sure they all ended up standing in exactly the correct spot – no mean feat with so many women involved!
The ladies from Colombia and Venezuala strike a pose
We obviously have a group of naturals though, as all the contestants were quick to pick up the routine and the smiles stayed in place throughout. It was lovely to see them all helping each other with the steps, a brilliant team!
