Bart de Vries is a  29-year-old who quit his job as a physiotherapist to start up before-work dance parties. Called, Rise & Shine, the alcohol free, dawn dance raves have been so popular, the last one was sold out.

Bart de Vries says his job as a physiotherapist was frustrating and he wanted to change attitudes about what counts as exercise. Any profits from Rise & Shine will be channeled into low decile schools, teaching children about healthy food and exercise.
