Embrace: A Cocréa Dance Space
Alliance Physical Therapy
7887 Soquel Dr ste d&e, Aptos, CA 95003, USA
Welcome to Embrace
We invite you to partake in a lovingly curated movement space that encourages a community of folx who express themselves and find nourishment through delicious feeling, intentional partner and solo dance.
In this space, we lovingly nurture the human longing for connection and the nurturance available when we consciously and intentionally choose to share coherent movement with another human (or humans).
There are many spaces to move energy in a totally organic, free-form manner. We relish structure offered by the firm, supple frame of another body showing up to co-create deliciousness with us.
We welcome the surrender required to create something beautiful that is larger than the sum of ourselves and our partner within a community of mindful, expressive and courteous individuals.
The COCRÉA DANCE CULTURE is guided by consent and right relationship. This requires deep listening and presence. We are NOT AN ECSTATIC DANCE, although we certainly encourage ecstatic states, be that through wild physical expression, or a quiet encountering of bliss that results in stillness.
We invite the full spectrum and we host a BRAVE space for everyone to show up holding it TOGETHER. WE create a SAFE space TOGETHER. We are all responsible for our impact.
Our invitations are manifold and our desire is the potent sense of connection that we ( Cocréa and its agents) know and have experienced is possible when we say yes within a strong field of agreements.
We invite clear eyes and auric fields!
Embrace and the intelligence supporting it, Cocréa, is about practicing authentic relating and holds consent as central to its teachings. It’s challenging (or impossible) to obtain consent when altered. As fun as it is, this is not that party. Let’s get high on endorphins, eye contact, breath, movement, touch and fresh, juicy beats.
We invite evolution and growth!
COME TO THE CLASS.
We love to dance and we love to be together in community, and we’ll be the first to acknowledge there is no better place to learn than on the dance floor in the moment. Except MAYBE in a space designed specifically to support you upleveling your Jedi bad-assery. Join Wren and our occasional guest teachers for an hour of psycillium activating, community soil amending somatic inquiry into epic presence and attunement and watch the garden of your dance burst and bloom with coherent connection.
We invite punctuality!
COME ON TIME (IF YOU WANT TO DANCE)
This will be a closed container event. Doors will close at 8:00 and space is limited. Please get your ticket in advance or arrive early for the class to guarantee your spot.
We invite ecstatic play!
COME GET THE FUNK DOWN.
Cocréa is a practice space for the dance of life. We welcome all expressions of your being, of your freedom, of your intimacy. We welcome you getting into your pleasure, we welcome you getting into your grief, we welcome you releasing deeply into your joy. We create an agreement field that we’re all going to show up all the way, play full out and pray full out while respecting the integrity and harmony of our shared container.
We strongly encourage you to read these community guidelines hosted on Cocréa’s website as a way of crafting our agreement field and shared culture.
