You are cordially invited to
the historic 2nd International Kuchipudi Dance Convention
from December 24th to 26th, 2010 in Hyderabad in association
with Dept. Of Culture, Government of Andhra Pradesh. The
theme of the convention is 'Yuvatha Kuchipudi Bhavitha!'
(Youth is the Future of Kuchipudi!). The magnificent
Gachibowli Sports Complex is finalized as the Convention
venue and the Grand Finale will be held in the presence of
40,000 people at GMC Balayogi Stadium in Gachibowli. At this
Grand Finale, several thousand dancers are expected to dance
for a 'Thillana' and thus create a NEW world record by
beating the old record created at Cupertino Convention.
This International Kuchipudi
Convention is planned in India to bring together the five
generations of dancers from living legends to current
students who are learning this art form to promote and
further perpetuate this centuries old dance form. Several
national and state level organizations are evincing keen
interest to support and participate in this convention. More
than 5000 Kuchipudi dancers and delegates are expected to
attend from all over India and many countries around the
world. The focus is on inspiring the next generation youth
about this centuries old dance form. Several thousand young
dancers under the age of 25 years have shown keen interest
to participate and are expected to attend the convention.
There will be lecture demonstrations, workshops, research
paper presentations and performances. Let us all celebrate
the beauty and glory of Kuchipudi Dance!
