London office workers are being given the opportunity to properly let off steam during their break, following the launch of a new lunchtime disco.
In what could be a world’s first, Nightclub Drink, Shop and Dance is throwing parties with DJs from 12pm to 3pm, allowing stressed employees to let down their hair in the middle of the day.
As reported by London 24, Canonbury-based performer and promoter Jess Indeedy has set up the Lunchtime Disco, which takes place once a month on Fridays at the King’s Cross club.
“I had a dream that I was doing something called lunchtime disco,” she told the news provider.
“Lots of people were dancing and there was a massive inflatable sandwich that people were picking up and dancing with. I’ve basically realised this dream and as far as I can tell, it’s the first in the world.”
Ms Indeedy suggested that getting up and having a dance in the middle of the day can have health and productivity benefits.
She claimed that dancing increases blood flow, helping to keep workers alert at the end of a long hard week.
“When I was working in an office, I felt that just going to the pub at lunchtime was a bit boring,” the promoter stated.
“I wanted to boogie and had a lot of energy for the weekend to start. I wanted to dance.”
Going dancing every lunchtime could prove something of a distraction for office workers, but once a month could prove to be a nice change.
Employees spend enough hours in their London office space during the working week, so it can always be beneficial to forget about their job for a short period of time – even just half an hour.
