Diamond Family Circus provides youth leadership and performance opportunities through sponsorship of an incredible troupe of talented 11-21 year old circus friends, or as they call themselves, “FRiNDS”. Working hard as a team, they develop interactive performances that inspire, entertain and engage people at community and special events. These have included: Brandeis Relay for Life, Bentley University Homecoming Festival, Waltham Riverfest, Miles for SMILES Mentoring, the REACH Beyond Domestic Violence Neighborhood Festivals and Waltham Farmer’s Market. The troupe was especially proud to collaborate with Clowns Without Borders at the Life is Good Festival in 2011, which raised over a million dollars for Playmakers Foundation. Troupe members have included: Rose Taylor, Trevor Kafka, Eliana “Llama” Dunlap, Doug Stewart, Ivy Blake, Marisa Diamond, Grace Gershenfeld, Max Ribbans, Eva Lou, and many more, along with many of their family members who have served as crew, drivers, and much more, in support of the troupe. Most current troupe members participate (or have participated) in Marci’s Advanced Youth Performance Class at Aircraft Aerial Arts in Somerville, MA.
