Wren LaFeet says
Harnessing the power of Presence in movement, we explore the aspect of partnering in the wide spectrum of dance and music presented by our Beloved festival.

For those of you familiar with partner dance and/or Cocréa, as well as those new to it entirely, this kinetic awareness practice will serve as a means to take your dance to new level of presence, connection and authentic relating.

Building on the foundational elements of social partner dance technique, we'll learn how to wield creative expression with consideration to another body and practice nuanced responsiveness to one another.

We'll address the core principles and concepts of:
• Balance
• Core Strength
• Range of Motion
• Diversity in Connection Points
• Proportionate Responding

Since we won't be teaching at Beloved (sad) we'll be exploring movement dialogues with music EXCULSIVELY drawn from THIS YEAR'S BELOVED LINEUP!!/lineup/music
Thanks Elliot for letting us do this again! Last year's for Inspire Truth was really fun, and people reported having an excellent time on the dance floor because of it. Let's make this year's Beloved floor the most connected, present and kinetically communicative ever!

Please register here. Thanks!

Cocréa Conscious Partner Dance: Dance Your Life
Viewing life as a dance, Cocréa is a continually evolving holistic movement modality intended to bring individuals into strong, empowered, expressive relationships with their bodies. Wren and Antje guide participants into an experiential synthesis of western social partner dance techniques, body alignment and awareness from yoga, bio-mechanics, and physical theater training, physics, and authentic relating practices. As we hone this dynamic, kinetic toolbox, we emphasize connection, communication, and presence between two people within a community of others. Allowing intuition and feeling to guide the partnership, their centers and frames to support it, dancers listen and respond in the moment, release old and excessive thought patterns, and access profound joy.

Weaving the threads of collaboration, cross-pollination and consciousness, Wren and Antje’s focus is on how dance can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and transpersonal co-creation and transformation.
