Amy, Jenny and I have been working hard in the side lines just observing, with the notion that the program will impact on the quality of the participants lives. Our observations will demonstrate how the project achieved this. Our funding has us focusing on DADAA participants although that does not diminish the contribution from the Circus teens. We have seen them engage in some special collaborations through music, movement, working on circus equipment or creative use of other devices such as the hoist.  We are watching to see how physical actions, social exchanges and emotions are playing out.
