We’ll start with a nicely curated Crocrea Mindful Partner Dance warm up with the internationally celebrated facilitator – Wren LaFeet!

➤ WREN LAFEET
Wren is a somatic permissionary teaching mindful partner dance as a practice for embodied, authentic relating. Wren is devoted to serving humanity’s evolution and living his sacred life as Art.
➤ COCRÉA Mindful Partner Dance – is an emergent, improvisational partner dance practice for developing presence, opening gateways to creativity, empowering mindful leaders and followers and generating authentic connection in relationship. Weaving the threads of collaboration, cross-pollination and consciousness, the practice focuses on how dance can enhance and expand relationships into a deeply connected, honest and powerful tool for personal, interpersonal and collective transformation.
➤ How it works:
We open with a special warmup yoga or movement class facilitated by a skilled practitioner. The opening class blends seamlessly into the the two hour freeform dance journey facilitated by our guest DJ. At the end of the DJ set we close with a sound bath or group exercise to ground and complete the experience.
➤What to expect:
Ecstatic Dance is a community gathering for people who want to express themselves freely, to connect, and to expand together.

Amazing music helps us keep it all about Dance.
