I love to dance. I have always loved to dance for as long as I can remember. When I was a youngin’, I had this very interesting food/dance ritual. During meals, I would take a bite of food, and if I liked it, I would break out in full dance around the table. Bite. Dance. Bite. Dance. Bite. Dance. Repeat. My love for dance continued into my adult life and still continues to this day in my sober life. I may not drink, but I stay out later and dance harder and longer than some of my boozing buddies. And, now I can start my day raving (or continue my night raving, depending on when the party started) with Morning Gloryville, a sober (they explicitly ask that you not show up under the influence) early morning “conscious clubbing experience.”
The party starts at 6:30 am and ends at 10:30 am. If you have to go to work after the festivities, Morning Gloryville provides a “cloak room” where you can store your professional attire. Morning Gloryville also offers:
- wake-up massage stations with expert massage therapists
- more love than you’ll find at your local unicorn ranch
- a superfood smoothie & juice bar
- a high-five (free)
- a coffee kiosk
- an incredible motivating dance team
- NYC’s most talented DJs
- A BANGING DANCE FLOOR
Morning Gloryville was born of co-founder Samantha Moyo‘s frustration with not having enough sober spaces where people could experience intense club energy as their authentic, substance-free selves. But, do not dismiss Morning Gloryville as simply a morning gym workout with a bunch of boring teetotalers. This is a real deal, all out dance experience with a warehouse rave vibe.
Breakfast raving, or “braving,” serves another awesome purpose: “…the point of Morning Gloryville is to break free from the shackles of a soul-sucking morning routine (morning jog, sardine-packed train commute, sipping coffee or tea at your desk) and embrace a more organic, life-affirming experience first-thing.” Morning Gloryville is now in 15 cities worldwide, including San Francisco and New York in the U.S. If you want to bring Morning Gloryville to your city, contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
Yep folks, this is how we sober people do!
