South Africa (16 April 2020) – Amidst the tumultuous changes, grievances, and sudden changes, this year has also ushered in PLENTY of welcomed surprises and joys in South Africa.

And South African’s have been collaborating to co-create care and kindness, even innovating solutions for our world.

One such lovely celebration sits in the Secret Sunrise, this homegrown South African movement, launched their “Joy Online” program less than three weeks ago; and in this short space of time – thousands of families and individuals across the globe have joined them for their guided online magical connection and movement with music experiences.

“Right there with Good Things Guy – we witness the places, spaces, and manners of many beings that show us we are truly finally becoming more human and KIND and letting go of the old means to an endways.” 

Asked to describe what a Joy Online session with Secret Sunrise is, one could say, “it’s an all-ages guided movement experience, where dance meets storytelling in a global community connection space. You’ll see families play hide and seek and hundreds of people all online, pulling funny faces, dancing, breathing and connecting with music together.

“We are adjusting our approach to uniting the world. During these unpredictable times, Secret Sunrise will be taking the necessary precautions to keep the world safe, while continuing our mission to connect the world through music and movement. Please note that sessions in a physical space will be on hold until further notice.

In the meantime, we are turning quarantine on its head and bring to you Secret Sunrise: JOY ONLINE! This online offering will enable us to digitally continue to celebrate, connect collectively – supporting a swift and safe overcoming of the difficulties that we are facing as a collective – and full recovery of everyone affected.

Join this global movement – right from your living room – and celebrate with us the light of humanity through music, movement, and connection.

We look forward to continuing to bring the world together to the rising sun, one virtual smile at a time.”

Since launching online three weeks ago, Secret Sunrise has even partnered with big brands in the world, including WWF and Mind Valley, and “SecretSunrisers” (of all ages) have been joining their en masses from around the world.

The best news is, they’re about to bring these sessions to children, old age and special needs homes too – keeping the lockdown a joyful space for all at this time.

“At a time where our emotional wellness is fundamental to the strength of our immune systems, we salute this bold movement for connecting the world through Joy Online.”
