Dear D'AIR Family -
It's with heavy heart that the silks and trapezes have come down and we are officially closed for business. However, we have always been more than that, and I would like to invite you to stay connected. We will keep our Facebook and Instagram accounts open (see info below) and hope that we can continue to use it as a platform to support each other. We may not be an official business, but we will always remain family. We are stronger together and we value all of your voices. Let’s work together to foster change, to help draft a greater community that recognizes that indeed black lives matter. I hope to continue to see you in virtual space and maybe someday soon in your physical being as we emerge out of our cocoons. Please stay safe.
