10 Things to do in June

Shakti – The Yoga of Dance

On Saturday, June 7 from 6:30 – 8:30 pm, Bodhi Holistic Spa & Yoga presents at the Root of Your Sacredness Workshop.  Shakti Dance is the ‘yoga of dance’ – the conscious practise of dance, infused with the wisdom of yoga to develop awareness and understanding of body, mind and emotions. With a unique and harmonious blend of flowing asanas and various styles of dance, Shakti Dance works energetically to develop the art of intuitive and free movement through a state of mystic, meditative union. Gently opening the pranic current (life force), the body and mind are able to surrender and merge with the intelligent, creative flow of Shakti, giving life to a sacred dance form.  Cost is $20.  For more information visit www.bodhiholisticspa.com.

See a Musical

On The Two of Us Productions presents the sweeping drama of Les Miserables from June 6 through June 15 at the Performing Arts Center at Taconic Hills School.  Les Miserables is an epic tale of broken dreams, passion and redemption against a nation seething with revolution.  For more information or to purchase tickets visit www.thetwoofusproductions.org.

See a Show

“MY WHITE KNIGHT” – The Music Man, playing June 5 through 15 at The Mac-Haydn Theatre in Chatham.  Harold Hill has come to town with his usual slick salesman’s plan: make the sale, get the money and get out of town, but when he meets Marian, he finds a reason to spend more time in River City, Iowa. He also breaks through the stern librarian’s reserved manner when he befriends her little brother, Winthrop. Meredith Willson’s nostalgic Americana hit show is filled with the fun of a July 4th pageant, excitement of a kid’s band, barbershop harmonies, unexpected romance, and great songs.  For more information and reservations call 518-392-9292 or visit www.machaydntheatre.org
