  1. Masks freak me out especially clown ones, I would have to give this festival a miss.

  2. Do the audience get to wear mask too?

    • Dina, sometimes at the performances they’ll get audience members up to dance. They don’t usually wear the masks though. You can make your own mask if you want. I think they change about $10.00.

    • Hi Dina, The audience doesn’t usually get to wear the masks. However, the dancers like to get the audience members up dancing, especially the foreigners!
