Ever thought of dancing your way to wellness? Well the time has come, because Global Wellness Day (GWD) is inviting the world to join in on the celebration of wellness and joy with a #DanceMagenta theme this June 10, 2023.
In collaboration with Myndstream – the official audio partner of Global Wellness Day – and vocalist Brianna Mazzola, Golden Globe Award-nominated songwriter and producer Taura Stinson, and producer Darien Dorsey.
The GWD Anthem will set the tone for a day of abundant wellness and epic celebration around the world.

The #DanceMagenta philosophy aims to spread beyond the event and into communities across the globe.

Global Wellness Day has come a long way since its inception in 2012. What began as a simple idea of encouraging people to pause and reflect on living well has grown into a global phenomenon, attracting millions of participants each year. The fundamental message of Global Wellness Day is clear – wellness should not be considered a luxury, but a fundamental human right that should be part of everyone’s daily life.
Dance Like Nobody’s Watching
This year’s theme of #DanceMagenta takes inspiration from dance, a universal language transcending the boundaries of age, culture, and nationality. Dancing has long been recognized for its immense health benefits, from improving cardiovascular health to boosting mood, and improving cognitive function. Poetically, dance is also a celebration of life – simple but effective affirmations for expressing joy and happiness, and a precious reminder that we are all infinitely connected.
As Global Wellness Day founder, Belgin Aksoy, profoundly puts it, ‘The music of the universe never stops. Those who manage to become one with music are happy people. Dancing is not just a physical activity. Those who choose to live well are those who come to realize that dancing is also a way of thinking.’
The GWD Anthem: Music for the Soul
Myndstream, the official audio partner of Global Wellness Day, understands the divine power of music to enhance wellness. Myndstream creates music designed for health and well-being, using scientific principles to create exquisite soundscapes that help people relax, focus, and heal. The GWD Anthem, created in collaboration with Taura Stinson, is an uplifting, inspiring track that embodies the spirit of #DanceMagenta; with its infectious rhythm and positive effect, the GWD Anthem inspires people to get mindfully moving and gleefully grooving this June 10, 2023.
But the wellness celebrations don’t end there. Global Wellness Day events around the world will feature a wide range of activities, from yoga and meditation, to cooking demonstrations and dance workshops; each event is set to be educational and complimentary, embodying Global Wellness Day’s philosophy of accessible wellness, and free of any commercial energy.
In sun-kissed Ibiza, for example, the Consell d’Eivissa will host a celebration at the Hard Rock Ibiza music stage, featuring masterclasses on fitness, Zumba, and BalletFit, among other activities. Meanwhile, in majestic Montenegro, the focus will be on the well-being of expectant mothers and children, with activities ranging from prenatal yoga sessions, to wellness seminars, art and music therapy, and dance workshops. For the spiritual mecca of Israel, the GWD team has partnered with local dance studios to promote well-being through dance, inviting people to choose joy and reminding people that all dark clouds pass.
