When & Where
Shakti Arts Foundation, Inc
Shakti Arts Foundation is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization dedicated to fostering authentic self-expression in diverse communities through dance, voice, yoga, and interpersonal communication.
The word "Shakti" denotes the feminine force which gives birth to the diversity of the world – it is in this diversity we see that all is one. And it is through connection with one another and with ourselves that we discover the binding force between all that is seemingly “different.”
Shakti celebrates expression of this diversity through many modalities and strives to bring Eastern values of community and non-duality to the West. Shakti recognizes that every body and mind is unique and there is no one-size-fits-all approach to self-expression. Our goal is to empower all students with their natural potential for creative expression and encourage innovative approaches to traditional styles.
