Steven Boyd Award
At each regional Masquerade Dance Competition the judges select an outstanding dancer to receive the Steven Boyd Award. This honor is presented to the dancer who not only demonstrates an exceptional level of confidence, but who also shows an undeniable passion for dance through their performance quality. Mr. Steven was a talented dancer, instructor, choreographer, adjudicator and mentor for many. Mr. Steven’s legacy is one masquerade dance chooses to celebrate at each Masquerade event, as they recognize dancers they believe Mr. Steven would have enjoyed interacting with. His true passion for dance and his ability to inspire young artists continue to serve as a benchmark for everyone at Masquerade Dance Competition as they honor his spirit as they see it reflected in each generation of dancers.
