Wren’s eclectic movement style has largely informed fusion as an emergent dance form free of any fixed aesthetic. Fueled by his curiosity in spirituality, the body, global community, the natural world and relationships, and guided by his devotion to love and the idea of the Beloved, partner dance has served as the vehicle for his inquiry and understanding. He has inspired the formation of multiple fusion dance communities on the west coast of North America, and teaches partner dance internationally as a practice for mindful, authentic living.
His facilitation encourages individuals to create themselves as safer spaces for the embodiment of the full range of human expression. Promoting dance as medicine, spirituality and salve for our modern ailments of disconnection and alienation, his practice insists we trust our bodies with the music and our partner to catalyze elevating our whole being into higher vibrational states.
Working with the holographic overview of humanity provided by the Gene Keys and combining its contemplative practice with his own somatic exploration and intuitive listening through the body, as well as his study of human conflict through theater, Wren empowers individuals and communities to dance with joy, helps free insights locked in the body, coaches people to more easily access their sensuality and even on privileged occasion supports the healing of chronic disease. Wren’s deepest desire is to guide people into right relationship with the moment; to listen and respond appropriately to what is being called for in service to the highest possible good.

FEATURED MUSIC ARTISTS
Northern California producer Scott Nice brings the listeners mind and heart into a flowing adventure through world music colors, sounds of the jungle, and dance music aesthetics. Nice, a former turntablist who has logged time in the skateboard and snowboard industries, returned to making music with a newfound clarity and focus following health challenges that saw him stop making music for an extended period. The healing arts and indigenous wisdom that supported his recovery weave a thread in every song he creates, finding a place within the juxtaposition of his skateboard soaked childhood and heart centered present. Through inner journey and personal triumph, Nice has arrived at an exotic cross-section of styles, yet maintains a sound all his own.
In 2016 Jumpsuit Records released Scott’s freshman album ‘All the Wild Creatures’ and in 2017 the follow up EP ‘One Under the Sun’. In 2018 he released his sophomore LP ’A People Called Home’ and 2019 saw the release of Scott’s first remix album comprised of 11 producers including El Buho, Uji, Volo and more. Scott has been a featured producer and remixer on many releases including Ayla Nereo, Wildlight, Volo, Equanimous, DJ Taz Rashid and The Polish Ambassador albums.
