RISE AND DANCE

There’s no bet­ter way to start your day than with a ses­sion of groov­ing, laugh­ing and con­nect­ing with oth­ers. Se­cret Sun­rise is a global move­ment that was born in Zam­bia and aims to unite the world through dance and con­scious col­lab­o­ra­tion. It’s an ur­ban craze in which peo­ple gather to cel­e­brate the dawn of a new day. Par­tic­i­pants are each given a set of wire­less head­phones so they can en­joy the sound­track, let loose and ex­press them­selves through move­ment – all with­out dis­turb­ing the neigh­bours. This mag­i­cal morn­ing dance party takes place ev­ery fort­night in dif­fer­ent venues across SA. Visit: www.se­cret­sun­rise.com
