Dozens of local high school students showed off their moves on the catwalk Saturday night.Twenty-two young women and 10 young men were chosen to model at the Prom Fantasy fashion show at the DuSable Museum. One hundred fifty Chicago area teenagers auditioned.

In addition to learning how to 'work it' on the runway, organizers from the RH School of Performing Arts were teaching students the importance of poise, posture and presentation.

Some students were also surprised with awards, such as a free gown or tuxedo for the model with the highest ticket sales.
