silent disco toronto

Silent Disco dance party in Toronto this month

Imagine dancing in a park or street with headphones synched to a music playlist that everyone around is listening to at the same time and, even, around the world.

This is the mission of Silent Disco Squad, a worldwide phenomenon attracting global attention about people reclaiming the streets, one city at a time. From NYC, London, Montreal and Los Angeles, silent disco is transforming public spaces into silent dance parties.

Toronto's first Silent Disco took place last year during the inaugural 100in1Day but now it's back for an encore. On July 18 at Bellevue Square Park in Kensington Market everyone is invited to what the Silent Disco Squad is calling their Pan Am Games Spectacular. Arrive at 2:30 p.m. and start dancing at 3.
