This day-long playshop will give dancers new or newish to structured partner dance the foundational tools we use in Cocréa to dance with anyone to just about any music. Moving through the 6 connection points of Self, Earth, Music, Other, Community and the Whole, we’ll play towards an experience of coherence with another body by understanding frame, rhythm, resistance (or tone), inertia/momentum and musicality.
Just as our bodies cannot stand without a skeleton, Cocréa asserts our dance cannot evolve into its highest expression without evolving the form as well. The practical and the beautiful have a place by each other’s side that elevates the other into its highest vision of what is possible. When we evolve our form, our power to be at choice in our transformation emerges organically.
