A-Kon Masquerade Ball Music Examples


We are interested in music suggestions that also have an official/unofficial dance that can be learned before the convention.

Songs and dances must still adhere to Masquerade Ball aesthetic.

All suggestions will require a video in order for attendees to learn and follow before the convention.
