Take note: The Masquerade is not a “couples dance.” Indeed, the point of a Masquerade is to dance with numerous partners, known or unknown, and then see what transpires while dancing in dis-guise. Because you can never be sure what will happen – when you or your partners are set free by those magical masks.
In addition: We limit attendance to keep the dancing joyous and fun. We also do our best to balance for Leads and Follows, so if at any point we deem the balance to be too great, we will institute a wait list to maintain a comfortable balance. A good reason to get your tickets now.
