Kuchipudi 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.
