Embracing life as a dance, Cocréa is a continually evolving holistic movement modality intended to bring individuals into strong, empowered, expressive relationships with their bodies.

TICKETS ON SALE SEPT. 10TH!

Based in the structure common to many of the world’s social partner dances, dancers will learn tools to invite and allow an easeful flow of ideas to emerge through listening and responding in presence to the moment - connecting to Self, Earth, Music, Other, Community and Whole (Cosmic Universal Oneness).

With its origins in the Fusion partner dance movement, and giving huge appreciation to Blues, Swing, Hip-Hop and other resistance dances that have massively shaped fusion, the practice is to meet one another where we are and engage in an explorative movement dialogue as free from judgement as we can make ourselves. As we hone this dynamic, kinetic toolbox, we emphasize connection, communication and creative expression between two humans within a community of others.

At its core, Cocréa is a practice of adapting to life’s emergent changes through a process of allowing, accepting and embracing. Cultivating intuition and feeling to guide the partnership, our centers and frames to support it, Cocréa celebrates our ability to embody joy through being in a body moving in harmony with other bodies.

Weaving threads of consciousness, culture and intimacy, the practice focuses on how movement can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and collective healing and transformation.

WREN LAFEET is an acclaimed master in his craft of Fusion Partner Dance and has been named “the next voice in conscious dance” by Soul Motion core faculty member, Aletia Alvarez.

A dancer in the Fusion social partner dance movement since it began, Wren’s dancing largely defines fusion as an emergent folk dance form based in the spontaneous co-creation of new aesthetics.

Fueled by his curiosity in spirituality, sexuality, global community, the natural world and evolutionarily focused, conscious relationship, and guided by his devotion to love and the idea of the Beloved, partner dance has served as the vehicle for his inquiry and understanding. He has inspired the formation of multiple fusion dance communities on the west coast of North America, and teaches partner dance internationally as a practice for mindful, authentic living. His facilitation encourages individuals to create themselves as safer spaces for the embodiment of the full range of human expression. Promoting dance as medicine, spirituality and salve for our modern ailments of disconnection and alienation, his practice insists we trust our bodies with the music and our partner to catalyze elevating our whole being into higher vibrational states.

Working with the holographic overview of humanity provided by the Gene Keys and combining its contemplative practice with his own somatic exploration and intuitive listening through the body, as well as his study of human conflict through theater, Wren empowers individuals and communities to dance with joy, helps free insights locked in the body, coaches people to more easily access their sensuality and even on privileged occasion supports the healing of chronic disease. Wren’s goal is to support people into right relationship with the moment; to listen and respond appropriately to what is being called for in service to the highest possible good.
