Imagine waking up at 5:30 AM, heading to a nightclub wearing your favorite yoga pants and then participating in a morning session of yoga followed by two hours of epic club dancing… Sound amazing? Well, thousands of people across the country who attend Daybreaker’s morning dance parties completely agree. Never heard of Daybreaker? Believe it or not, Daybreaker events are a part of the “sober clubbing” trend—a growing movement of adults and millennials seeking a healthier movement.
For Seattle natives, who normally are at the tail end of hip trends like this, Daybreaker recently launched with roaring success. The last event was at Foundation Night Club with a morning starting at 6 AM — complete with an hour long yoga session followed by two hours of dancing and music. The $30 ticket price included an hour of warm-up yoga, a two-hour dance party, unlimited organic energy drinks, and breakfast energy bars. If you’re worried about how to manage 3 hours of yoga, dancing, and sweating before going to work, the Daybreaker FAQ has some great advice: “Most people bring a change of clothes, a stick of deodorant and walk in rocking the musk with pride.”
According to the Daybreaker website, the inspiration behind Daybreaker came from the founder’s experience at Burning Man, where morning dance parties are part of the ‘playa culture.’ And as the founders so beautifully put it:
“Over a late-night falafel in Williamsburg, we mused over an idea. An idea about dancing before the day broke with people we love. About cultivating a community that values wellness, camaraderie, self-expression, mindfulness… and mischief. About going to work with our brows slightly dewed from moving our bodies with reckless abandon, sans alcohol but with so much spirit, surrounded by the most amazing people we know. Daybreaker has grown from a small social experiment and an art project with our friends in the basement of a NYC coffee shop to a movement connecting incredible humans locally and globally who choose to live life differently.” – Radha + Brimer
Daybreakers launched two years ago and parties are now hosted in 15 cities around the world. Seattle’s presence on this list is indicative of the fact that Seattle is quickly becoming a distinguished city both in the US and around the world.
