The Opening Ceremonies are a ceremony to welcome the new prodigies into Foxfire, and to welcome back those who have moved up a level. In Book 2: Exile, Sophie takes part in her first Opening Ceremony. The prodigies dress up like their level's mascot. Sophie was in Level 3 when her first Opening Ceremony took place, so she dressed up like a Mastodon. Along with dressing up like your mascot, you also dance, with choreography that is similar to the way that your mascot moves. Sophie had to dance in a shaggy brown Mastodon costume and a green Dragon costume. Sophie thought that the level six costume (the Yeti) looked the most embarrassing.
