BRATTLEBORO Brattleboro Conscious Dance: Talk-free dance practice intended to enjoy and explore embodiment, physical expression, and your body's wisdom. After an unguided warm-up period, the facilitator leads a brief opening circle on a theme or guided practice, followed by a selected playlist of music — beginning spacious and mellow, gaining intensity, and arriving back into stillness. We close with a sharing circle in which you are welcome to speak about your experience in the dance. This time is meant to be reflective, sharing awareness and emotions that arise in the dance. Primarily offered for adults, children are welcome with adult accompaniment provided they can follow the talk-free and intentional structure and be mindful of their impact on others in the space. No experience or partner or shoes are needed. 11 a.m. - 1 p.m. $10. Headroom Stages, 17 Elliot St. Information:,
