Leave your inhibitions at home! It’s right there in the title: when you attend a silent disco hosted by Be You Disco, embrace who you are—even if you have two left feet.
Cofounded by life coach Carolina Panoff and musician Kevin Oliveira (stage name Kevin Ohm) in 2020, Be You Disco hosts guided wellness experiences that include grounding, meditation, singing, and dancing to a curated playlist aimed at eliciting a therapeutic wave of emotions. Participants wear headsets so they hear only the vocal empowerment messages and music of Panoff and Oliveira.
Be You Disco now attracts 30 to 80 people at its regular public event on Singer Island. Ranging in age and background, participants unite on the beach for a truly uplifting experience. “There are so few activities in our society where young people and older people can cross over and intersect and enjoy the same activity,” says Oliveira, who lives in Tequesta.
They also host an ongoing public event on the lawn outside The Ben hotel in West Palm Beach and have partnered with various local museums and performing arts centers.
A core part of their business is the corporate sector. They travel nationwide to host team-building activities for companies including Delta and Aetna, as well as colleges and universities. They also lead events at private parties like weddings, birthdays, and graduation celebrations.
At press time, Panoff was in talks with Piper’s Angels Foundation about a possible partnership event. She also hopes to create a new experience in Jupiter designed for new moms to dance with their babies in tow.
