A new alarm clock for urban areas is on the rise. Daybreaker is an event that visits all major cities to break the routine mornings that all of us have. Their intention is to help their participants live life a little differently while hoping the experience can make them more excited to start their day.

Starting with yoga for the early birds at 6 a.m, Daybreaker continues at 7 a.m. with live performances and endless dance circles for their participants. Promoting a healthier lifestyle to headstart your morning, Daybreaker is a "no booze allowed" event. At the "bar" there are the morning essentials — breakfast snacks, coffee and a variety of juices.

Daybreaker returned to Boston on Saturday, Sept. 17th for another reputable dance party. This time around, Daybreaker participants crowded around City Hall Plaza while being covered head to toe is bright '80s themed clothing. At this Jazzercize, people did all things fun while getting some good ol' cardio in before starting their day.Attendees modeled their favorite neon spandex, leg warmers and sportswear for a 7 a.m. yoga session before two hours of dancing.

With an unusual yet remarkable twist to their purpose, Daybreaker is ready to spread their movement from city to city. Prepare to leave the dance floor ready to rock your day.
