Secret Sunrise is an early morning interactive dance session. It is a fun, energetic celebration that combines yoga, meditation, make believe and dancing. Guests are given wireless headphones on arrival and our whacky instructors guide them through a unique, themed session. All the ‘Sunrisers’ have to do is let go and enjoy.
The sessions have been running in Johannesburg and Cape Town and have just launched in Pretoria, Durban and Stellenbosch and are always looking to host these sessions in interesting and unique spaces.
The classes are usually themed and offer the opportunity for guests to dress up and be as silly as possible. Dress up is optional but highly recommended. These themed sessions although fun and quirky also offer us the opportunity to explore and delve into deeper and more mindful topics, such as compassion, self-expression, fear and acceptance. At Secret Sunrise we like to celebrate the unordinary and step out of our comfort zones. It’s a great opportunity to let go in a safe space, be ridiculous and have some fun.
The event has little noise pollution due to the headphones and as such we are able to take our classes to many places in a considerate way to all those around us.
This is not a party and we promote healthy living. Alcohol and any substances are not allowed at our events. The core philosophy of Secret Sunrise is "Share the Joy."
These sessions are a perfect platform to help people to feel free, to express themselves and to reap the benefits of letting go. Secret Sunrise is for everyone. We have no age limitations, it does not matter if you are fit, unfit, courageous or shy. The organisers aim to make this movement as inclusive and accessible as possible.
"Secret Sunrise is structured around experiencing and seeing the sun rising and we try to provide locations that have a view of the rising sun. We like to host our events in beautiful spaces. We have enjoyed sessions in the parks, in the city, on rooftops and in some fantastic venues. The venue is kept a secret and is only revealed to ticket holders the day before. Each day, dawns with new amazing possibilities, with the potential for us to really embrace this human experience. So why not get up early, immerse ourselves in the beauty of our city and let go as we dance and celebrate for no reason at all?"
The hope is that Secret Sunrise will bring people together and will help us to start to engender a greater community spirit. They firmly believe that these sessions will help to cultivate change. By breaking down preconceptions and by pushing people out of their comfort zones a little we are helping our beautiful 'Sunrisers' to experience a greater sense of freedom and connectedness and hopefully a vast array of emotions too. Come and sing, dance, laugh, cry, shout, stomp, hug and find stillness all in a safe space where these emotions are not only accepted but encouraged.
