Co-creative Dance
fun thought provoking movement building community through connections

Co-creative Social Dance is an exploration of alternatives in Social dance. We respect and love for social dance, but also think that it can grow and possibilities be explored. We are interested to explore what would happen if both partners would dance with no lead and follow distinction and knowing both roles. Could we find a way to dance together and switch roles or co-create? And very importantly, how would we dance this way at as high a level as a normal lead/follow dance.
We believe that we all have within us what are consitered masculine and feminine energies/traits and dancing one role highlights either the feminine (follow) or masculine (lead) traits. We are looking for more balance our lives, in ourselves, as well as on the dance floor, we believe it would be amazing to dance with a partner both striving for balance and comfortable with both roles. Our current exploration have resulted in strenghtening our beliefs that this is not only possible but is so much fun!
