ShaktiFlow is a performing arts organization which is founded upon the philosophy of empowering the collective through the strengthening of each individual. Dedicated to bringing social change and human rights issues to light, ShaktiFlow combines dance and theatre to connect with and communicate to its audience.
Together with Shrina Patel, the founder and artistic visionary of ShaktiFlow, the members of the ShaktiFlow artistic performance team are dedicated humanitarians, committed to fostering grass-roots social justice activism. Shrina's fusion of various musical and dance styles into her choreography enables ShaktiFlow's members to use the performing arts to initiate positive social changes for marginalized groups that are at the greatest risk in our society.
With this mission as its guiding philosophy, ShaktiFlow helped organize the highly successful Women’s Day Charity Fundraiser, which took place on March 7, 2014. The aim of the fundraiser was to bring awareness to the burning social issue of violence against women, which was illustrated through visually-striking dance choreography, and was a great success, where the fundraising goal for the women's shelter was exceeded.
Shrina believes that performing arts are the most powerful and effective tools with which the world can be made more humane, by inspiring human beings towards altruism and humanitarian action. Her remarkable energy and entrepreneurial drive to pioneer the Bollywood dance art form to its current success in the Edmonton performing arts scene have built her a strong reputation as a talented and innovative instructor and choreographer within in the arts community of Edmonton, northern Alberta, and even as far away as India.
