Would you like to dance to the drum drum drum of the masquerades?
Well, it is carnival time in St. Kitts-Nevis' carnival and Saulo is excited to see the masquerades perform and dance, and to hear their music. He dreams of dancing the masquerade one day but when the masquerades get too close for comfort, Saulo isn't sure he is ready for his big debut.

Inspired by a very real and incredible young man, The Masquerade Dance tells of a boy who is mesmerized by the "drum drum drum" of the masquerade beat and dreams of dancing the masquerade. Look inside to read about this lovely tradition with roots in African, Indigenous Caribbean, and European culture.
