Classical at its best
It was the time when all the classical dance lovers witnessed a great talent in the Capital. Renowned Kuchipudi exponent Meenu Thakur and her disciples performed live at the event Feel India, an initiative of Incredible India and IDTC on 24 April at Hotel Ashok.
The performance encompassed a mosaic of classical Kuchipudi pieces however the major attraction of the event was Tarangam performed by Thakur enthralling the present audience and eliciting appreciation and applause from them. The artistes were later felicitated by ITDC.
Thakur is one of the leading Kuchipudi dance exponents. She has flair and grace for an efflorescent dance style Kuchipudi. Her style represents a combination of the feature of Purusha Sampradaya (original male dance tradition) of Kuchipudi and its Anuroopa (transformation of the male dance style into female interpretation). She has excellent command over technique and abhinaya.
