Established in 2016, Shantha Ratii Initiatives (SRI) is a non-profit organisation that believes innovation and inclusiveness are as significant as being creative and dynamic.
On one hand preserving tradition and on the other drawing from it, risk is what SRI is willing to take to journey across artistic boundaries, to create new narratives without compromising on artistic value and integrity; to revitalise the cultural immediacy of Indian classical dance and bridge tradition with innovation.
To regenerate the spirit of the arts in unique ways that is more penetrative and lasting.
To entertain, engage, educate and inspire.
SRI’s scholarship program for students from less privileged backgrounds seeks to give them the opportunity to understand the culture and the spectacular world of Indian dance, and to empower them to discover their own talents and build their confidence.
It is SRI’s vision and mission to expose students to the transformative power of dance – physical, mental and emotional.
