Benefit performance helps fund this weekend's OpenAir Circus
More often than not, teachers scold their pupils for clowning around. However, in class at the OpenAir Circus, teachers not only encourage goofiness, they teach it.
That was the story Friday night. The ExtraTerrestrial Circus Experiment, made up of OpenAir teachers, held a benefit performance at the VFW Dilboy Post in Davis Square, with all proceeds going towards the OpenAir Circus. The gang of captivated children strewn across the hall's floor was mostly OpenAir students, attentively watching tricks they'll perform this weekend.
“It's really nice to share it with them,” said Adam Dipert, a five-year teacher with OpenAir and main character of Friday's show. “I'm able to show them the skills that I've been teaching and have the opportunity to translate my vision of how it should go in a performance situation.”
