We all passed our #SAFD#SingleSword#SPT this weekend! Thank you & congrats to our amazing teacher Angie Jepson Marks, the legendary J Allen Suddeth for adjudicating, & all our colleagues/co-conspirators! Props to @JTTurnerActor for his recommended pass in BOTH unarmed and single sword, and to @marisa_diamond for playing the perfect Pan to her mama's ever-challenged Hook, and helping every step of the way (right into the mouth of the croc)!
Marisa, Marci & J.T. had a great time teaching multiple sessions of our "Dynamic Bars", "Art of Auditions & Applications", & "Slapstick & Stage Combat" workshops, learning from our youth & adult colleagues, and catching up with old friends & new @aycofest2017 - thanks to everyone who made this amazing national festival possible.

Just caught the 2nd of Marisa's 80s Shows @circusharmony @citymuseum in STL via Facetime; a great performance, AND she chose to donate half her hat for both shows to the Albemarle-Charlottesville NAACP (and you can too! http://www.albemarle-cvillenaacp.org/). #blacklivesmatter#loveisloveisloveislove#neveragain

Landed at LAX from Nadi and walked right over to @lestudio, home of @lepetitecirque for a quick visit. Thank you to Nat for creating such amazingness (feel better!), studio manager Laura for warmly welcoming us, coach Earnie for wowing us, and the happy, talented troupers who let us have a peek at their hard work!
DFC co-founders Marisa and Marci had a wonderful time teaching these wonderful folks our "Dynamic Bars" (Lyra & trapeze) workshop at the incredible Eve Gordon's fantastical Dust Palace in Auckland yesterday! Thanks, Eve and all for the warm welcome (and Glen for the ride and Rosa for the shirt swap & smiles) and hope to see you all down the road!
