The Importance of Play - Episode 24

July 17, 2017

Dr. Curtis Rogers talks to Dawn Daria and Paul Miller about Flow Circus, their company that harnesses the power of creative, playful flow to energize, excite, and enliven groups. Founded in 1999, the first ten years of Flow Circus focused on growing a successful juggling education company with an array of performances to promote reading and STEM education as well as hands-on programs for tweens and teens. In recent years, the increasing number of requests from companies and organizations for team building combined with a clear need for everyone to take occasional breaks from technology in order to play, connect, and grow has led Flow Circus to its current set of program offerings including team building and play breaks.
