Workshop on Kuchipudi Concluded at Thrissur

The ten-day workshop on Kuchipudi organized by Satyanjali Academy of Kuchipudi Dance at Kerala Sangeetha Nataka Academy, Thrissur led by Anupama Mohan, Kuchipudi exponent and founder-director of Sathyaanjali Academy,  concluded on 10 April 2016. The workshop - Kuchipudi Naatyabhivrudhi Workshop - was a platform for the students to learn the essence of Kuchipudi.

The participants were of different age group from junior students to seniors. The workshop had training on the basic lessons and choreographies of Kuchipudi. The nuances of the dance form was discussed in the workshop. It was a great learning experience for the students.


Anupama Mohan says, " I feel, group training is much effective for students than individual training because, the students can correct themselves automatically by seeing the performance of others in the same group."

 Anupama Mohan, one of the senior disciples of Kuchipudi Maestro Padmabhushan Dr. Vempati Chinna Satyam, has been conducting workshops in Kuchipudi at Thrissur since 15 years with an aim to promote and propagate the art form. Except the last three years, Kuchipudi performances by the students were also conducted at the culmination of the workshop. She has also organised workshops at various places nationally and internationally.

After the workshop at Thrissur,  Natya Visardha Anupama Mohan will conduct workshop at Palakkad from 18 to 25 April 2016. Dwaraka Auditorium, Melamuri at Palakkad will be the venue.
