Some people call her gifted. Some people call her flashy. Nobody can, however, stop talking about her. One of the biggest performances of The Deccan Dance Festival has Shobha Naidu on stage tonite.

The Kathak Kala Kshetra, in association with the Department of Culture, is organising The Deccan Dance Festival from 6th to 8th March, at Ravindra Bharathi. The 3-day festival will feature some of the best classical dancers of the country, like Susmita Chatterjee, Bimbavati Devi, Pallavi Krishnan, Meenakshi Chittaranjan, Dr Shobha Naidu and Sujata Mahapatra, sharing the stage.

Today, the final day, Dr Shobha Naidu will present a Kuchipudi recital. Dr Naidu is among the foremost Kuchipudi dancers of India and an outstanding disciple of the renowned master Vempati Chinna Satyam. She mastered the technique of Kuchipudi and began dancing lead roles in dance-dramas while still very young. She has performed with her guru’s troupe all over the country and abroad, excelling in the roles of Satyabhama, Padmavati etc.

She is also an excellent solo dancer. She has received the title of Nritya Choodamani from the Krishna Gana Sabha, Madras. She also received the Sangeet Natak Akademi Award for her contribution to Kuchipudi dance in 1990. Her biggest honor, of course, is the Padmasri that she received 3 years back.

Founder and Principal of the Kuchipudi Art Academy in Hyderabad, Dr Naidu has been imparting training to younger students over the past few years. She has also choreographed several dance-dramas, like Bhagavad Gita and Vipranarayana.

The Kathak Kala Kshetra was started by Pandit Anju Babu, a Kathak dancer, choreographer and percussionist, in 1980. He himself was a popular dancer, having performed in countries like USA, France, England and Japan. Pandit Babu teaches many students in this institute, and has even conducted international training programs with Anjali Papa, Director of the Anjali Centre of Houston, where he trained many Indian and American children in Kathak.

The entry to the festival is free. For further details, please contact 98492-59133.
