Communication in Motion

about this event

Harnessing the power of Presence in co-created movement.
Cocréa is Collaborative, Organic Communication, Revolutionizing Embodied Awareness.

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.

*This Playshop (same as a workshop but more fun) is for people new and new-ish to partner dancing as well as people who have been dancing all their lives. This is for folks looking for a presence and consent based intro to partner dance, and those looking to add organic and fresh elements to their established technique and style.

No partner is necessary.
Movement experience is recommended.


Building on the foundational elements of social partner dance technique as our common language, we’ll learn how to wield creative expression with consideration to another body and practice nuanced responsiveness to one another in improvisational, co-created dance.

In this playshop we’ll explore:
• Core Stability & Balance
• Lead-Follow Dynamics within Conversational Play
• Adaptive Listening Techniques
• Frames of Connection
• Accessing Intuitive Movement

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.
