At Masquerade, we pride ourselves on being the most exciting and fun-filled dance competition touring today! It is our mission to blend the thrill of Mardi Gras and the spirit of New Orleans with a well-organized and stress free competitive dance event. We have adopted the phrase “Laissez les bon temps roulez” which simply means ‘Let the good times roll!’
This year we are celebrating our 15th Anniversary season, and we have some special surprises in store to help commemorate fifteen years of building our Masquerade family! We are looking forward to another fifteen years of excellence in dance education, and the opportunity to engage with and help guide the next generation of talented artists.
Giving Back Throughout the Year
2018 was a special year for us at Masquerade Dance and we would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in our Masquerade family for making the season so exciting and memorable! We are grateful this time of year for the wonderful relationships that were built through opportunities to give back. In addition to contributing to many wonderful organizations during this holiday season like the Academy of Creative Theatre in San Luis Obispo, California and the Northshore Food Bank in New Orleans, Louisiana, we strive to find new ways to give back throughout the year. We strengthened our partnership with the Ames Center in Burnsville, MN which resulted in the dedication of the Masquerade Dance Theater! In addition, we were pleased to award over $20,000 in scholarships to graduating seniors from studios all over the country. We were also proud to once again sponsor the Industry Dance Awards, an annual event that raises funds and awareness for Dancers Against Cancer. We are looking forward to another outstanding season in 2019, and we wish everyone a successful new year!
