Hello friend. We are Daybreaker, a community of early risers whose mission is to stitch the world back together through dance, self-expression, music and mischief. We are a team of Community Architects, Experience Designers, Artists, Performers, and Mischief Makers and we create experiences IRL so that we can get back to connecting with one another through all five of our senses, not just two (our phones) and in the morning when our bodies are the most energetic and awake. With the isolation epidemic our most pressing global problem that bleeds into every aspect of humanity (when we don't belong, we don't care about the environment, animals, we lack empathy etc.) we are solving this problem with the most POTENT solution: DANCE. When we bring movement, music, fun, aliveness, play and dance into the conversation, all of a sudden, eradicating isolation begins to feel achievable. Daybreaker is now in 27 cities with a community of 500K+ activated members who wake up at sunrise to dance with reckless abandon, all without substances.
And now, we are launching in Denver and are looking for YOU the most passionate, creative, curious, and service oriented Community Architect and Experience Designer who is as excited as we are to level their city up and create a space for all ages, all shapes, all genders and sexual orientations to come together, connect and dance.
Daybreaker is a 3-hour experience, typically from 6am to 9am where the first hour is yoga or fitness and the next two hours is a full-on, immersive, performative dance party. Imagine seeing breakdancers, aerialists, fire spinners and dueling violinists all before going to work.
A few words from our community:
"Daybreaker is a SPIRITUAL experience. It's the first dance floor I've truly let go on and have felt years of trauma leave my body. Dancing is medicine and I never understood that until I went to Daybreaker. Thank you for creating such an inclusive, substance-free judgement-free space. I never miss one now."
"I didn't realize how co-dependent having fun and drinking was for me until I went to Daybreaker and had the best morning of my life, completely sober!
"Dancing is truly the BEST way to stay healthy and active! I probably burn 1000 calories at Daybreaker! I forgot that "working out" could actually be FUN!"
"I met my now best friend on the dance floor. We made eye contact on the dance floor, smiled and twirled each other around! It took real courage for me since I usually only get wild when I'm on something. It was SO freeing to meet someone AS ME. Thank you Daybreaker!"
"Daybreaker inspired me to come out to my family. After feeling so included and so free, I had the courage to share with my family who I really am. Thank you for changing my life in such a pivotal way."
This is a critical moment for humanity. We can go in two directions into a VR headset or into our most present human experience. It's time to shed all the layers and get back to dance. We believe dance is the antidote. Let's make magic.
