Pretoria is to hold its’ first secret sunrise at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre on 7 April. People are to meet at a secret location, which will be disclosed closer to the time of the event, where they will be given wireless headphones and partake in an interactive dance session that involves yoga, meditation and dancing.
The early-morning sessions are a perfect platform to bring people together and create a greater community spirit. “Sunrisers” sing, dance, stomp, and hug, enjoying themselves in a safe space where the expression of emotions is encouraged. “Menlyn Park Shopping Centre has always been a place for all walks of life to meet and enjoy the wide variety of food, fashion and entertainment that is on offer all year round”, says Andrea de Wit, marketing manager of Menlyn Park Shopping Centre “and the Secret Sunrise is just another great initiative on offer at Menlyn.”
Cheryl Hudson, co-organiser of Secret Sunrise Johannesburg, says that the increasingly popular ritual is a wonderful way to start the day and to enjoy your city in new and beautiful spaces. “We’ve hosted events in Johannesburg and had amazing sunrises on rooftops, parks and in the city,” she says. “With the success we’ve had with previous events and the many requests, Pretoria was chosen to be part of this growing movement, and what better place to host it than the trendy Menlyn Park Shopping Centre.”
“Secret Sunrise is a great way to step out of your comfort zone, be ridiculous and just have some fun, which resonates with our customers at Menlyn Park Shopping Centre,” says Andrea de Wit, marketing manager of Menlyn Park Shopping Centre. The session, to be hosted by whacky instructors, will have a theme, and participants will be encouraged to dress the part.

A beautiful word that exemplifies a philosophy of caring for the welfare of every individual in a community – that special acknowledgement that “I am because we are.” Ubuntu is a spirit that ignites people to work together, for the benefit of all.
