EMBLEM OF NRITYA PRIYA

"Dance is an expression of Life" is the precious line derived from the activities of the "NRITHYA PRIYA" the School of Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam. Registered No: 2232/1995 in the era of Andhra Pradesh. This is a unique ­čĹî EMBLEM to portray the Classical Dance School.? ... It's my idea of creating an EMBLEM for the Classical Dance School ie. Nrithya Priya School of Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam. Normally, the Classical Dance School Emblems are one way or other linked with the sculpture of Lord Nataraja. Here, for Nrithya Priya I put my effort to do something different. Next thing is I asked Smt.Dr. Saritha Dilip to pose for the EMBLEM. I looked into several Mudhras and hand gestures. I took various pictures with some special lighting effects. This is the result you can actually see. ├Łou must know an important information regarding this EMBLEM. Sri. Akkineni Nageshwar Rao famous veteran Film Actor was the Chief Guest for the Sri Krishna Jananam Dance Drama. He has seen the picture of the EMBLEM of Nrithya Priya the Dance Mudhra as seen in the picture. Dr. Akkineni Nageshwar Rao's reaction was... He said..."Please send me a small picture of this Mudhra the EMBLEM of Nrithya Priya". This is how Nrithya Priya School of Kuchipudi and Bharatanatyam has made its impact on the Classical Dance within the State of Telangana and the "World Over". Dili K. Pentu
