Achuta Manasa  Kuchipudi Artist Profile
Achutamanasa was born into a philanthropic family, which has an immense love for indigenous Indian culture.At a very tender age of five, as a child she was with a perception that �Dance is music and music is dance�. Feeling both are equally one,she asked her mother to make her join. Her mother Ms.Rajya Lakshmi infused the interest towards arts and got her child admitted to a carnatic vocal school. While learning rudiments in vocal music at the age of six, one fine evening, when she was going to the institute she got fascinated with the rhythmic sounds of Muvvalu (Classical Dance Anklets) and explored what her soul was aspiring for. Having been enthralled by rhythmic footsteps of classical dance of Kuchipudi (the native Classical Dance form of AndhraPradesh) she pested her mother by crying to have an admission to Kuchipudi institute. Namely, there is a transition from her perception.Even at that tender age, Achutamanasa had a succinct idea of what her soul was aspiring for.Recognizing the �spark� in her child and the agility of her body for Kuchipudi, her mother who herself is a connoisseur immediately accepted her proposal and admitted the child to the institute.
