Vyjayanthi Kashi will be assisted by her daughter & disciple Prateeksha Kashi, who has successfully completed her Masters in Kuchipudi.

By using the ancient wisdom and modern technology to bring about a deeper knowledge of dance, this course introduces narration of stories from epics and Puranas to make it enjoyable and enriching for the students.  Dr. K Nagaraja Rao, who is currently pursuing D.Lit (Post PhD) in Mahabharata will be handling this subject.

Kuchipudi hailing from the land of Andhra Pradesh, it becomes essential for a student to understand the nativity and language of the land. Hence, we have introduced Telugu as part of the course with an intention to help the students better understand the compositions in Kuchipudi which are primarily in Telugu or Sanskrit. Dr. K Nagaraja Rao will be the resource person for Telugu as well.

The theoretical aspects of dance will be taught by Roopashree Madhusudan, who is a masters degree holder in Sanskrit with five gold medals from the University of Mysore and a well-known theoretician in the field of dance.
