Kuchipudi Dance Academy is a pioneering Kuchipudi dance institute in Dombivili, Mumbai. It is a non-profit organization, established in the year 1981 by Smt Vijaya Prasad with an aim to popularise Kuchipudi in Maharashtra. The teaching is imparted in Guru Shishya Parampara style. Each student is personally trained under the able guidance of the guru herself. At a time when this sacred art form is elusive to the common man due to high commercialization, this institute relentlessly trained potential and talented students irrespective of their economic capabilities.
Standing testimony to the twenty five years of dedication are many awards and accolades that students and the academy have won.
