ALEXANDRIA, La. (KALB News Channel 5) "It gives everybody an opportunity, whether they have taken dance or they haven't to experience being a girl and having fun in a safe environment and doing the things that girls love to do," said Stephanie Laborde.

The Princess Boot Camp currently has more than 60 campers training to become the next queen of CenLa.

Campers say being a princess gives them a chance to be themselves.

"I mean there is no boys to like distract you and stuff, and so really it's fun. It's all girls; it's everything you always wanted to do," said Anne Marlowe Gremillion.

Along with art classes, dancing and modeling, the girls from Princess Boot Camp play dress up too!

"We dress in pretty dresses so we can be princes. We pretend they have princess dresses so I dress up in one and then I put a crown on. But I can't find one so, I just be a princess," Makynzi Bonnette.

"I like the purple ones and the butter fly ones and the lady bugs."

Camp leaders say, any girl can make their dreams of being a princess come true.

"The thought that every girl can be a princess. And it does not matter you know, what you come from, how much money you have or the things you know that stop us from believing in ourselves. The people that stop us from thinking that we are not important. That you can be a princess and that it doesn't matter about the material things it's about who you are inside," said Stephanie Laborde.

The eight week princess boot camp at Steps Dance Studio in Alexandria is set to continue throughout the course of the summer.
