Since 1993, Cirque Dreams' family-friendly variety extravaganzas have called upon a cast of acrobats, strongmen, and daredevils to wring the oohs and aahs out of audiences with tremendous feats of derring-do. During each themed production, more than 100 performers garbed in dazzling outfits twirl high in the air, contort their bodies into impossible shapes, and solve long division problems to earn uproarious applause from the crowd. At Dream Studios in Pompano Beach, Florida, hundreds of contracted artists from around the world develop their skills and prep for Cirque Dreams performances under the direction of Neil Goldberg and his team of choreographers, contortionists, and designers.

Always looking for a challenge, Pangaea River Rafting's future owners Brooke and David Lawrence set out on a 4,000-mile cross-country bike ride years ago. But tackling that endeavor only increased the duo's thirst for more. After years guiding rafting expeditions along the Clark Fork River near Missoula, Montana, they decided the most exciting challenge would be to start their own rafting company. So, in 1989, they bought a small company by the name of Pangaea Expeditions, which they later renamed Pangaea River Rafting. During that time they also got married, fittingly alongside the river.
Over the course of more than 20 years, Brooke and David have developed a series of programs that highlight the area's tourist attractions as well as draw locals out into their surrounding habitat. They direct rafting ventures boasting wine tastings, happy hours, bird watching, team building, and catfish cuddling.
