Sree Nrithya Siddhi School of Kuchipudi Dance

Sudha drew the inspiration to teach students with the suggestion and blessings from Padma Bhushan Dr. Vempati Chinna Satyam in 2000 and taught 3 students (Jason Sreedhar, Suravi Sarcar and Sohini Sarcar) interested in this art form since then. However, she officially registered Sree Nrithya Siddhi School of Kuchipudi Dance, L.L.C. as a Dance Company at Richmond, VA under the guidance of Guru Sri Hari Rama Murthy in the year 2009. It was established to promote the appreciation for the fine elements of this classical art form. The idea is to promote and practice by teaching kids in Richmond and surrounding areas the fine elements of this glorious classical art form from the state of Andhra Pradesh, India. In keeping with this mission, Sudha Vadlamani conducts the classes to help basic, intermediate, and advanced level students gain the knowledge and greater skills in Kuchipudi.

In addition, The Sree Nrithya Siddhi School of Kuchipudi Dance plans to conduct summer camps led by teachers coming from India, whenever an opportunity is presented.
