If your child would like to compete at Masquerade, all registrations must be done through a Studio Owner or Director.
Your studio owner will be able to access all rules and fees through the online portal once they have begun the registration process, and have created an account with Masquerade.
The schedule with times is sent to your studio owner 7-10 days prior to the event. The program is available on the Masquerade Dance free iPhone/Android app. The schedule for each regional will be available on the app the Monday prior to each event as well as on its designated city page.
We feel as though your teachers should decide when they want you to arrive, but we do tend to run ahead of schedule.
Masquerade creates a schedule for every event based on the needs of each individual competition. There is no set format, however we aim to create a schedule that will be most accommodating to all participants. In order to maximize time, the schedule at each regional is configured based on the breakdown of entries (Solos, Duo/Trios, Groups) for that particular regional event. Once payment for all entries has been finalized, a schedule of events will be determined, and available for viewing. *NEW FOR 2021* - we will be doing blocked studio scheduling for the 2021 season.
*NEW FOR 2021* - Each dressing room has a max capacity. We will assign rooms for your studio but your studio owner will need to assign specific dancers to be in certain assigned rooms.
Unfortunately, we do not offer blocks with discounts to any hotels throughout our season. Due to the subjective nature of hotel customer service satisfaction, we cannot recommend a certain hotel.
Absolutely no video or photography is allowed in the theater at any time during the performances. However, you may take personal photos and video during the Improv Contest and at all awards sessions. We have our own media department that will take professional video and photos during each routine that will be available free of charge after the event is complete. Dressing room areas are electronic free zones and no photos or video will be allowed in these areas.
*NEW FOR 2021* - Yes, all participants and ONE GUEST will check in upon entering the building with their SmartWaiver QR code. (see your designated city page for more info)
Not necessarily. We tend to run ahead of schedule. If we run more than an hour ahead, your studio directors will be notified.
We are pleased to announce that Masquerade photos and videos are now free for all performers. Each studio owner will have information about how to obtain photos and videos once the event is complete.
Masqueture and Masquerade merchandise items are now available online as well as at our events. City shirts, however, are only available at the show.
*NEW FOR 2021* Yes, we do a LIVE awards session every Tuesday at 6pm following your event. We post the results on our website 3-5 days after the competition.
In order to avoid any miscommunications, students, parents, or family members should not contact the office for information regarding the competition or registration process. Any questions or concerns should be directed toward each studio owner. This will streamline the distribution of information and prevent any misunderstandings. Masquerade staff will not be permitted to provide information to students, parents, or family members prior to the event.
