An accomplished artist, Dr. Subha Maruvada has a unique distinction of celebrated excellence in two classical dance techniques of South India - Kuchipudi under Dr. Vempati Chinna Satyam and Bharatnatyam under Mrs. Kamala Narayana (Laxman). She had her Bharatanatyam rangapravesam in 1983, and awarded the titles of "Bharata Kamalarnava Kaustubha", and later "Bharata Nrutyarnava Kaustubha" , at Madison Square Garden for performing in a Ramayana ballet with Mrs. Kamala Narayan. "Graceful movements, charming stage presence, and natural sophistication in Abhinaya" were the words with which Mrs. Kamala Narayan described Subha.

Subha Maruvada gave a sparkling Kuchipudi recital at Kasturi Srinivasa Hall Music Academy, which was marked by fluidity and grace. No wonder considering that she has been trained by none other than Dr. Vempati Chinna Sathyam. "The jathi sequences were matched by her dancing feet and there was never a flase step" said Mr. A.S. Raman about her Rangapravesam performance. She has danced many roles in Kuchipudi dance dramas and undertaken several dance tours throughout North America and India.

Her dance is distinguished for its superb abhinaya (mime), sound rhythm, and impeccable grace. Subha is the founder and artistic director of Kuchipudi Kalakendra.

 Dance has always been vital part of Subha�s life. She has made a deep commitment to dedicate her life to the art of Kuchipudi with the encouragement of her Guru Dr. Vempati Chinna Sathyam, the acknowledged maestro and foremost exponent of Kuchipudi today. It is her life-time ambition to further propagate Kuchipudi dance style through performances, workshops, lecture demonstrations, and training. She takes her special challenge in teaching this dance form to blind children. She has also earned a Ph.D in Acoustics from Penn State University

"Subha presented a striking combination of footwork and mime with ease and grace" wrote a critic in "The Hindu". Dr. Subha Maruvada is the very first student from USA, who had her Kuchipudi Rangapravesam under Guru Dr. Vempati Chinna Sathyam of Kuchipudi Art Academy, Chennai, India. She had taught many students in Penn State University, Boston and Connecticut areas. currently she teaches Kuchipudi in the state of Maryland and Virginia.
