Wake Up to a Party During Daybreaker Week

They say New York is the city that never sleeps. You can find some New Yorkers out dancing until the wee hours of the morning. And now you can find quite a few New Yorkers dancing before they go to work. I was invited to New York City’s Daybreaker Week. Daybreaker is an event created by General Assembly co-founder Matthew Brimer and Super Sprowtz founder Radha Agrawal, and it gets going really early. So what exactly is Daybreaker? They call it “a morning movement that will start your day off unlike anything else.” And that is the perfect description of it.

Monday morning I arrived at the Monarch Rooftop Lounge with my yoga mat in hand. Word of advice, they don’t provide one; so don’t forget yours. The dancing starts at 7 am, but if you need to relax and ground yourself first, the event offers yoga at 6 am. After a mind-full yoga experience, the dance party started.

The event featured dance party royalty PONY, ELEW and Jordan Urbach on the violin. People danced, jumped around and let loose. It was the most amazing thing I’ve seen in a long time, especially at seven in the morning. They offered healthy energy juices, Kind Bars, coconut water and an assortment of other healthy snacks to get you in the mood. Each day of New York’s Daybreaker Week a portion of proceeds went to a great organization. Monday’s proceeds went to the Ability List, to help connect the 56 million Americans with disabilities with the resources, organizations, and activities available in their hometowns.

It’s the perfect thing to get your ever-so-busy New York day started. Don’t worry if you missed Daybreaker Week, they come back to New York every couple of weeks or so. Visit dybrkr.com to stay up to date on when they’re in the city.
