AFFILIATES WITH OTHER CLOWN ORGANIZATIONS
The RainCoast Clown Troupe was founded in 2002. This “alley” was formally established in 2005.
As of 2010, some of our members belong to Alley #24952 of the World Clown Association (WCA) as well. In 2013 we became a lifetime alley of the World Clown Association. Presently 2 of our members sit on the board of WCA. The WCA holds an annual convention. In March of 2016 it will be in Florida. All are welcome!
Some of our members also belong to Alley #379 of Clowns of America International.
Some of our members hold positions in both organizations!
Our members are dedicated to networking and mentoring. We help each other. At our meetings we share our knowledge of marketing and advertising, magic, face-painting, balloon sculpture, juggling and everything else.
We have no secrets; believing that if one entertainer looks better, we all look better.
Parades: We participate in 6 to 8 parades around the lower mainland each year as well. It’s a great way to try clowning. Being in a supportive group helps new clowns or “first of Mays”
Balloon Jams: We also get together monthly to practice balloon sculpture and socialize in a little cafe in South Surrey. The jam convenes at 10:30 am, usually on the 4th Thursday of every month. We give our creations to the children who are there. Maybe we can teach you to make a flower or a cat?
