About This Event

Sruti is pleased to organize a Bharatantyam Dance Workshop by the exemplary Kuchipudi dancers Jaikishore and Padmavani Mosalikanti for the first time in the Philly area.

Shri Jaikishore Mosalikanti has performed widely in major dance festivals within the country and abroad. He has performed many lead roles in the dance productions choreographed by his guru. Shri Jaikishore has choreographed numerous solo as well as group productions and presented them in the major dance festivals such as Konark Dance Festival, Khajuraho Dance Festival and All India Dance Festival. He has also travelled abroad extensively for performances and workshops including the Erasing Borders Festival in New York, U.S.A.

Padmavani, wife and disciple of Sri. Kishore Mosalikanti, was initiated into dance at a young age and has eventually grown to be a kuchipudi exponent. Though her initial training was in bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi became her passion after she joined Kuchipudi Kala Kendra Mumbai in 1995 under the tutelage of Sri.M.S.R.Murty, a senior disciple of Padmabhushan guru Dr.Vempati Chinna Satyam.

Participants should be at least 13 years old.

The workshop will conclude at 1 PM followed by a Pizza lunch with the teachers.
