This is the house that Marisa built! Thank you to @marisa_diamond 💪🏽for leading our shed raising today, to make space for our circus & theater equipment, and to @characteractor for the generous assist in between your rehearsals! And apprentice Emma, and Costa for the ladder/drill loan. It truly takes a village! #circuscrew#behindthescenes#familybusiness#rosietheriveter
How to properly thank your clown teacher @marisa_diamond ! We didn’t get a chance to thank you all back with pie (yet), but do want to thank and congratulate ALL our kids and families on their wonderful final performances at @aircraftaerial . From the colorful “Day In Life” show presented by our weeklong youth intensive participants on Friday, to each of the session-long classes’ lovely culmination shows on Sat...you inspire us, and we truly hope to see you down the road! #pieday#clown#youthcircus#mayallyourdaysbecircusdays @americanyouthcircus
We found The Greatest Showman after our show today! DFC loves sharing circus joy at public housing projects throughout Massachusetts, and we are so grateful for the supportive staff of MA Housing and all their participating sites, as well as the engaged, resilient, brilliant kids and families for whom we get to perform and provide circus workshops. Also, watch out @characteractor , this kid wants your Ringmaster job (thank you as always for the magic hat)! #socialcircus#youthcircus#familybusiness @americanyouthcircus PC: Showman’s Mom!
Another great Waltham Riverfest for DFC! We haven’t missed any except for rain one year and are always happy to be part of our hometown festival! Thank you to all the performers, families, volunteers, audience, and @marisa_diamond for your leadership! #walthamriverfest2018 @aircraftaerial @americanyouthcircus #circus
Had a wonderful day conducting training today for @CircusSmirkus - thank you to the brilliant leadership team and Big Top Tour staff for being so welcoming, caring, thoughtful & engaged...very much looking forward to continuing our work together next week. Wishing you all the best season yet, and see you down the road!
Thanks to @emmasteinert24 for posting this amazing photo collage of memories from DFC youth troupe over the years, from performing @lifeisgoodco Fests with @clownswithoutborders to @reach_bdv Fests to @americanyouthcircus Fests...and beyond!
