Shakti is the first dance group in Slovakia, which is profiled exclusive on Indian dances. Beginnings of our group are in the year 2006. The main part of our repertoir is built by bollywood dances, but we work also with traditional temple dances as kathak and kuchipudi. We offer also folklore dances from various parts of India, as bhangra or gharba. We are also interested in a very modern form of Indian dance, called hindi pop.
