Thank you and your St. Louis Staff for providing yet another great competition experience for our cheerleaders. We go to several competitions during the season and ALWAYS enjoy participating in the MARDI GRAS SPIRIT event more than any others. While our parents enjoy the “on-time” schedule and the fun (games), our Coaches appreciate being scored fairly and appropriately.
Your events, staff, judges and atmosphere consistently provide the experience we look for when choosing a competition company.
Thanks for everything you do!
Thank you for your office assistance & for working with our crossovers in warm ups. Mardi Gras Spirit knows how to throw a party and the kids always have a blast! See you next year!

~Gulf Coast Elite Cheer
We really appreciated the kindness of the staff this past weekend. Warmups were run flawlessly. It was evident that the Mardi Gras staff enjoy what they do. I know there’s a lot travel involved and it can be a tiresome job at the end of the season. But, they showed no sign of that at and we appreciated it! Tons of energy, tons of gifts for the girls and registration money well spent! When parents are excited about spending extra money to add a final event, when kids are excited about their beads, trophies, banners, wall posters and when my coaches are saying “We can’t miss this one next season!”, I know it was a great way to end our season! Thank you!
It was the best competition we have attended!!
We love the friendly staff and the Mardi Gras Parade.
