Early bird pricing for Chakradance workshop

Experience the healing power of Chakradance in a small, safe group setting at the Chakradance Weekend Workshop at the Summit School of Dance, June 28-30. Wendy Bradshaw, one of only two licensed Chakradance facilitators in the United States, will lead the workshop.

Bradshaw will provide a nurturing space where you can surrender to your own experiences, become more in tune with your Chakra system and activate your own inner healing. Although each participant is dancing his or her own individual journey, when a group of people dance together with the intention of healing, the energy and healing is heightened, Bradshaw said. Chakradance classes are all held in a darkened room, lit only by candlelight. In this “sacred space” dancers begin to transition from their outer, everyday lives into their inner, imaginative world.

The weekend workshop is divided into 60 minutes per Chakra. It begins with an introductory overview and goes on to explore each major Chakra before concluding with an integration class. This workshop will gently awaken each of the seven chakras and help you to discover where your energy is flowing and also where you have blockages. Dancing through your chakra system regularly will release blocked energy and help you to feel more alive and energized.

KidsPlay musical theater workshops start in July

Breckenridge Backstage Theatre presents two unique musical theater camps for kids this summer, led by instructors Monique Melhauser, Gail Smith and Katie DeSantis.

“Toy Story and Beyond” (July 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12) reunites Woody, Buzz, Jessie and all their toy pals for a musical story created by the students in the workshops. This camp is designed for first- through third-graders. “Hotel Transylvania” (July 15, 16, 17, 18 and 19) takes place at a rocking retreat for monsters of all shapes, sizes and, ahem, blood type. It’s a monster mash of epic proportions when a human visitor from the outside world threatens to disturb this sanctuary created by, for and enjoyed by monsters. This camp is designed for fourth- through sixth-graders.

These camps provide students with the opportunity to learn music, dance and acting in a week-long musical theater camp. The camps are held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the dates listed above at Summit School of the Dance, 400 Granite St., Frisco. Registration cost is $200 per child, and space is limited. Registration forms are available online at, or for more information, call (970) 453-0199. KidsPlay workshops are made possible by a generous grant from The Andrea-Mennen Family Foundation.

Second Saturday ArtWalk in Breckenridge

Arts Alive Gallery in Breckenridge is now featuring Keats Scott and her artistic quilts. The gallery will host an artists’ reception with refreshments from 4-8 p.m. Saturday, and the exhibit runs through the month of June.

Scott started quilting when her niece was born in 1983. Most of her work is in the form of landscape scenes, and the inspiration comes from living in Summit County and traveling around the country. Most of the fabric is commercial cotton, though hand-painted and dyed fabric is added, too. Landscape and art quilts are the main focus, as well as traditional patterns including some applique. All of the quilts are one of a kind, machine pieced and quilted.

Scott is mostly self-taught but recently has discovered the inspiration and camaraderie at quilting workshops. Quilting is done in her spare time when not working as a realtor in Silverthorne.

Arts Alive Gallery, a local artists’ co-op, is located in the La Cima Mall in Breckenridge, 501 Main St., and is open daily from 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. The nonprofit Summit County Art Council, whose mission is to promote visual arts and enhance the cultural life of Summit County, sponsors Arts Alive Gallery. Second Saturday is a social and cultural event that showcases great art and presents an opportunity to visit with and meet new people.
