Greetings dear Community

After some much-needed relaxation and rest, we are back in the office! Our wish for you, as the year unfolds, is the “hope of better days, of fresh starts and perhaps, if you are very lucky, a kiss” – Beau Taplin

We are bringing Secret Sunrise to the East Rand!

Secret Sunrise is a global silent guided dance and meditation community. They’re on a mission to celebrate life through music, movement and connection. The unique concept was born under African skies and has spread throughout South Africa and to over 16 cities across the world. Nicole, our co-founder, is a regular participant at their Johannesburg events and highly recommends you join us for an hour of fun, movement and connection on Saturday 29 February for a Leap Year Secret Sunrise in the gardens at Emseni Community Centre! No dancing experience is required! Please contact Nicky for more information and watch our media feeds for bookings and more details!
