Young Krishna Geetika, a disciple of guru Kala Krishna, chose to present her Andhra Natya Arangetram to veteran guru Nataraja Rama Krishna who had also graced the occasion and gave a brief talk on the discipline of the art and its practice. This temple dance originally practiced by the Devadasis of Andhra was renamed as Andhra Natyam by the researcher, Dr Nataraja Rama Krishna.

This show saw those ritualistic dances of temples like 'Pushpanjali' (floral offerings) and 'Vinayaka Kautwam' attributed to Lord Ganesha, which were followed by 'Siva Kaivaram' and 'Tripura Samharam', invoking the ascetic and the dancing form of Lord Siva who also rises to destroy the evil.

After this series of mono rhythmic numbers in a manner of chanting with ritualistic gestures, the dancer staged an expressional dance 'Muddugare Yashoda' illustrating the maternal love of Yashoda who realizes that her little Krishna is omnipresent. With an elaborate 'Dasavataram' encompassing many a mythical and a concluding Tillana, Krishna Geetika portrayed the image of a temple ritualistic dancer.

Guru Kala Krishna and vocalist Sarada Reddy supported the dancer on rhythms and song.
