Plot Synopsis

Draq queens teach beauty-starved, confidence-drained women the essential elements of sexiness, sass and spunk. Students arrive in groups of three each week, representing a different spectrum of today's modern woman such as: the blue-collar tomboy; full-figured gal; overworked mom; '70s TV Stars; and '80s pop icons. Each woman is paired with a drag faculty mentor who helps her achieve her drag dreams, and the woman's transformation is unveiled with a musical performance before an audience of family, friends and the judges' panel. The instructors are alumni from RUPAUL'S DRAG RACE and celebrities, while Lady Bunny is the Dean of Drag and RuPaul is the Headmaster. The Deans of Dance were: Frank Gaston (Season 1); Toni Basil, Candis Cayne, Andre Fuentes, Tricia Miranda and Jamal Sims (Season 2); Candis Cayne, Jamal Sims, Adam Cook and Phlex (Season 3).
