The party starts at 7… a.m.
That’s the idea behind a new concept called “Get Up” that features a DJ’ed dance party in one of downtown-Cincinnati’s hotspots, bright and early to rejuvenate attendees before starting their day.
“Get Up fuses mindfulness with expression and connection through a high energy dance experience. The first event [took] place at 6:00 a.m. on March 15 at Aster,” Sarah Habib, CEO and Founder of Mission 2 Move, says. “Starting with deep house yoga at 6:00 a.m. to calm the mind and open the heart, the real party begins at 7:00 a.m. with ‘a beat pumpin’ dance part, featuring live DJ.”
Then it’s time to fuel up, she says, as “attendees rejuvenate with beverages and snacks before leaving motivated, energized and inspired to face whatever their day has in store.”
This is the first Get Up event happening in the Cincinnati area. In addition to Habib, “Kai Schneider, Eric Elias, Annie Kanter are behind Cincinnati’s first ever morning yoga and dance party called Get Up,” she says. “It was Inspired by the wildly popular early morning movement in New York and San Francisco. All of us had participated in similar events in other cities and wanted to bring the magic here to Cincinnati, all in an effort to build culture.”
The name of the event came from a desire to have fun in the morning. “No better way to start the day than with Get Up,” Habib says.
The point of having the event in the morning is to set the tone for the day. “The whole point is to set the intention for the day, doing something out of the ordinary, get up and have fun!” What goes into organizing the event is “bringing together the right providers, from location to DJ to yoga teacher,” Habib explains. Her favorite part of working on the Get Up event is “Building culture in Cincinnati,” she says.
