Here are our rockstars, groovers, self-expressionists that spread love and joy around Cape Town.

Amy Shackelford

I joined the Cape Town team in 2016 and it was one of the most transformative experiences of my life! For me, Secret Sunrise is about steeping ourself in community, and through joy and dance harnessing the power of people to create something that leaves people feeling inspired, empowered, and a part of something greater than themselves. I believe tools like this are essential for large scale societal change. 

André-Louis de Villiers

Movement is life, so DANCE…. 

“When you walk to the edge of all the light you have and take that first step into the darkness of the unknown, you must believe that one of two things will happen. There will be something solid for you to stand upon or you will be taught to fly.” 

Anna

Wooooooo hooooooo!!! Nothing beats a JOY-us, openhearted, bust-out boogie, being silly, having fun, substance-free, high on life, appreciating nature, the magic of creation, LOVE, and connecting with each other. I love the music, I love the dance, I love the people, I love spreading joy, and I LOVE this family.

Anushka Kempken

Secret Sunrise is a powerful and incredibly spiritual journey that comes across in an accessible and extremely fun way. Being a facilitator is such an honour as strangers trust us facilitators to guide them though something which can not be explained. Excuse the very spiritual message here, but it’s too powerful not to share this way!

Brett Simpson

Sharing joy for me is aligning my energy with my heart (LOVE) and not my head (FEAR) and living from there for as long as am able to! I find dancing takes me there more easily and quickly that anything else I have experienced and the benefits of Secret Sunrise'sintentional playfulness with this opening is some of the most powerful joy work I have experienced.

Devon “Horsepower” Reynolds

Since joining in 2017, Devon has been bringing the energy AND style to the SS Family. With his fist punches, squat pulses and knee-highs, Devon isn’t afraid of turning the energy dial all the way up and unleashing his wild side on the dance floor. Turning the world into a playground is exactly how he loves to share joy!

Grant “Captain Boogie” Ross

'Sharing the joy' means living this through everything you do to make this world a better place. I would encourage anybody from any age, creed or walk of life to try or become a part of Secret Sunrise. It really is a place where you remember how life should be and how beautiful it really is.

Josh Ramsey

Josh jumped aboard the Secret Sunrise team early on, and has gone from leading sunrise sessions to training our new generation of instructors. With his vast experience as a group coach and facilitator, yogi and teacher, Josh brings calmness, peace and deep connection to the sessions that he leads.

Julian Wenn aka “Jumping Jules”

There are two things that makes my life worth living and I mean really living. The first is music, as a performing artist I live and breathe it, the second is dancing. So it was a no brainer when asked to join this funky tribe of dancing warriors. My life has really shifted as a secret sunrise facilitator. Dance dance dance is what we really should all be doing !!! 

Karen Christian

Secret Sunrise had me at the name, to be honest - I was not one for early mornings ;) but I do LOVE music & dancing, & being outdoors! So, to find such a SUPERB early morning ritual that gets you into nature & the elements, celebrating the sun, whilst listening to a beautiful variety of emotive music & moving your body…? Well, it was love at first dance!
