Guru Smt. Vijaya Prasad has her own unique style of Kuchipudi. Traditional Kuchipudi movements threaded with her smooth and mellifluous style makes it very appealing to the audience. Her Dance compositions are very narrative in nature, making it easy to understand. She also choreographed many contemporary dance ballets to help create interest in dance and art in this fast moving world.

This form of dance originated in the village of Kuchipudi, in Southern India and traditionally performed only by men belonging to Brahmin community. Kuchipudi has its own style which is very pleasant to watch and many of the songs are tuned to a special rhythm which is unique and enjoyable. The Kuchipudi dancers are experts in Sattwika Abhinaya, Bhava Abhinaya. The charm of Kuchipudi lies in its fast and intricate footwork, sinuous grace, and the use of the eyes to express moods and feelings. The technique of Kuchipudi closely follows the tenets laid down in the 'Natya Shastra '. There is some mingling of the folk idiom, which makes it highly appealing to a wide spectrum of viewers. The training takes about four to seven years, and includes two sets of adugulu or basic steps, the jatis or combination of movements, and a detailed study of the 'Natyashashtra' (theoretical aspects of dance).

Many milestones have been crossed and many more yet to cross. The academy is hopeful of getting Telugu University affiliation, which will not only affirm academic credentials our students but will also help in garnering proper building with facilities and a library for students to research and get in-depth understanding on various dance related topics.
