Gurukulam

This institution was originally initiated with blessings of my Guru Vempati Chinna Satyam in 1994 during their tours in this country. Since then it has been taken up this interest as a responsibility to teach and promote this art. This institution is formed to advance the process of bringing the Kuchipudi art into the younger generation. The agenda of this institution includes teaching Kuchipudi dance, which is based on the guiding principles originated by Guru Vempati Chinna Satyam, producing dance ballets, and promoting the knowledge of this classical art of India in the American community at large.
