Shakti, meaning the dynamic principles of power and strength, is what Shakti Queen Beats seeks to embody. Simron aims to express this power as a dancer, choreographer, performer, and innovator. She hopes to share her passion and love for dancing with dancers of all ages, backgrounds, and levels as she strives to build an Indian dance platform and greater dance community.
