Thrive Cleveland Lunch Beat @ HOB Cleveland // Cleveland Event Photographer

Wow is all I can say! Lunch Beat was amazing! I have to admit that I wasn’t so sure that a “silent dance party” would be so fun. Thank you Thrive Cleveland, Engage! Cleveland, and Cleveland Scene for putting this together and to House of Blues Cleveland for being the best venue in town! We’re very lucky to have our own HOB. And I never thought I’d see people in suits dancing at noon breaking a sweat with huge smiles on their faces. Today was a first for me.

For those of you new to Lunch Beat, it’s a healthy noontime rave and was born in Stockholm, Sweden in 2010. Four years later, the movement has grown from a Swedish garage to a global movement of lunch time clubbing.  Events are arranged in over 90 cities on all continents.

Share. Stretch. Smile.

Every Thrive experience features these essential elements. Science tells us that interaction with other people is one of the biggest happiness generators, so each experience we create is shared; connecting people to one another. Research also confirms that stretching our own boundaries —physically, intellectually, emotionally—is another key driver of happiness.

And of course, Thrive experiences aim to leave you with a smile—inside and out.

The Thrive Creative Team designs community experiences about once a month in Cleveland, Ohio. Our Thrive@Work team recently launched our workplace practice, designing experiences, habits and spaces that increase happiness in companies and organizations.
