How will you move when the brambles catch you to avoid ripping your clothes?
How do you dance in delight with the dishes?
When your partner erupts at you to stay in love?
When you get triggered by them?
Cocréa is more than a dance modality. It is a life practice.

~MORE ABOUT COCREA~
Cocréa engages us in the practice of moving in intuitive, kinetic dialogue with one another to just about any style of music and serves as a means to take your dance to a new level of intimacy and authentic connection with others. Building on the essential elements of social partner dance technique as our common language, we learn how to wield creative expression with consideration to another body and practice nuanced responsiveness to one another in improvisational, co-created dance. This practice is a gateway to accessing the body’s wisdom to deepening Self and relational attunement. Our intention is to explore form and play creatively from our heart, body and spirit, in full support and appreciation of ourselves and one another.

Cocréa = Collaborative Organic Communication Revolutionizing Embodied Awareness

~FACILITATORS~

ANTJE SCHAEFER

My passion for movement and music has been a prime source of connection, community building, and personal growth. My focus is on how the dance can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and transpersonal co-creation, discovery, and appreciation. I have spent the last 4 years weaving my life experiences with dance as an active co-creator of Cocréa, inviting hundreds of people back into their dancing bodies.

WREN LAFEET

My work with Cocréa synergizes the emotional potency of music, the awareness of physical theater, mindfulness and dance with the structure and form of language. I envision and dream of a world birthed of the question: “What if every person you encountered was a potential dance partner, proficient in the language of connection and unified movement?” From this vision, I anticipate a global culture of radically beautiful co-creators supporting each other’s discovery in peaceful co-existence.
