Dancing and beating away your pent up Covid-19 stress

Sledgehammers, baseball bats, headphones and dance shoes are proving to be just what the doctor ordered to help stressed South Africans blow off steam.

With frustration levels pushed to the limit by the Covid-19 lockdown, a tanking economy, growing unemployment and personal battles, knocking the blues out of discarded electronic equipment seem to lift the mood for high end financial business executives to emotionally exhausted parents alike.
To create safe de-stress spaces, SA entrepreneurs have scoured the globe.

That search has seen an explosion of Secret Sunrise dance gatherings, where people play music through headphones and dance in silence in public spaces, and demands for rage rooms where people smash out their frustrations on broken appliances with sledgehammers and baseball bats.
