Running across all 10 nights of Sydney’s Bondi Feast this year is Guru Dudu’s Silent Disco Walking Tours. Despite the title, the tours are more like an hour-long dance party through Bondi, with audiences being adorned with wireless headphones and taken on the tour of a lifetime. Based on the science of ‘play therapy’, Guru Dudu’s Silent Discos are all about getting participants to loosen up, connect with each other, and ultimately have a huge amount of fun.
Dani Cabs (or Dani Disco as he is more commonly known) runs and leads the tours that will be exploring Bondi this month. This will be the first time Guru Dudu bring their tours to Sydney and Dani is ready to take participants to the best disco they’ve experienced, saying, “It’s not so much a tour of the city, it’s more a party in the city. We use the city as our backdrop and our dance-floor.”
Dani encourages every Silent Disco tour group to be in the moment and dance their butts off in whichever way they like.
“It’s an idea of not holding on to inhibition and ego and letting that sort of drop by the wayside so that you can kind of reset your frame of mind,” said Dani.
Participants of the Silent Disco tours definitely don’t need to be dance professionals, with Dani assuring that even the most introverted of people will have the time of their lives.
“What you get is singing, dancing, play and a sense of community from a whole bunch of strangers that you’ve never met before – it’s a beautiful thing. You get to be a superstar for an hour!”
