Celebrating Diamond Family Circus’ final public housing program of 2018 with our new friend! Happy holidays and much gratitude to all! Thank you to the super staff, volunteers, kids & families at Spring Gate Apartments for the warm welcome this afternoon, and of course to Marisa & Phoebe (and her amazing mom) for always bringing the acrobatic circus magic! #socialcircus #youthcircus #artforchange
Inspiring day at Just-A-Start. Thanks to Pierre for inviting us, Marisa & Phoebe for the great work, Tracy for all the support and photos...and all of our new friends! #socialcircus #intergenerationalart #acrobats #youthcircus #communitycircus #cambridgesummer
In the midst of stormy weather, we found fun sharing circus joy with the enthusiastic, kind residents of Edmands House today, and even taught a couple of Framingham police officers how to juggle with the kids! @frampoliceassoc #socialcircus #circus #summerfun #familyfun #familybusiness #handbalance #juggling #fiesta
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!
