is one of the foremost classical dance styles of India, from the
South-East Indian state of Andhra Pradesh. It derives its name from
the village of Kuchelapuram, a place about 65 kms from Vijayawada.
Kuchipudi is not merely a dance form but is a combination of dance,
gestures, speech and song. It is known for its graceful movements
and its strong narrative / dramatic character. The abinaya aspect of
Kuchipudi is unique for it combines both the stylistic (natya) and
the (loka) realistic ways of expression. The ease with which the
movements are executed brings a natural grace to the nritta aspect
of Kuchipudi. In Kuchipudi, the movements are graceful and vigorous.
Center for Kuchipudi dance is a dance school established not only to
promote Indian art and culture but also to enhance the human
aesthetic values in young and adult through art. It visions to
improve and maintain high levels of cultural achievements and
continues to promote and make aware the cultural and moral values
among all particularly the youth in America.
