My key take aways from Cocréa are the power of listening, invitation (consent tools), conversational dance, and EMBODIED dance.

Pro Zouk Dancer and workshop participant

I’ll never forget when we first met and danced for hours. That one experience helped heal a lot of brotherhood wounds and I never felt that safe being held by a man.


Workshop participant

You are a wizard! You make incredible magic happen between people (individuals and groups). You have x-ray vision right into the heart of what’s needed and then you offer the exact medicine for whatever that thing is and the medicine you share is playful, juicy and sweet, so it’s a joy to receive.

A Wholistic Fusion of Partner Dance
and Mindful Connection


Harnessing the power of Presence in co-created movement.
Cocréa is Collaborative, Organic Connection, 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 artistry and authentic connection with others.

This Playshop (same as a workshop but more fun) is for people who are:

  • Excited to explore new ways of dancing with familiar people
  • Curious to discover ways to seamlessly transition between styles
  • Opening to different musical inspiration in their dance
  • Wanting to meet new dancers in their community
  • Ready to welcome a new level of presence and sensuism to their dance experience
  • Pumped to up their listening and improvisational prowess by at least 3x

No partner necessary.

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
  • New and Versatile Shapes for Expanding Connection
  • Accessing Intuitive Movement and Flow
  • Jedi Level Musicality
Building on the foundational elements of social partner dance technique from Blues, Swing and Tango as our common language, Wren’s playful and sincere guidance teaches how to wield creative expression with consideration to another body and practice nuanced responsiveness to one another in improvisational, co-created dance. Cocréa 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.

Teaching partner dance internationally as a practice for mindful, authentic living, and enlivening communities by facilitating his signature modality, Cocréa, has been his joy for over a decade. Wren guides humans curious about embodiment towards right relationship by exploring the realms of Self, Earth, Music, Sacred Other, Community and Whole through listening and responding, and inviting, allowing and embracing change.
