I have run through an exultant development during the past 12 years of my Kuchipudi dance training under the able guidance and support of  my Guru Smt. Lakshmi Rajamani.

My deep dedication and selfless commitment have enabled me to devote myself towards the Dance form. It is my deepest belief that, given the right guidance human growth is unlimited. I feel deep gratitude having the opportunity to be a student of Guru Lakshmi Rajamani.

I started my dance training at the age of 12 years pursuing the Vedantham style of Kuchipudi dance form. I have been a part of solo performances, brunda natyam and nrutya natakas presented by Lakshmi Kuchipudi Center. I have secured First Class in Kuchipudi Dance Junior and Senior Grade,
Carnatic Music Junior Grade conducted by Karnataka Secondary Education Examination Board. Also I have been a part of Guinness Book of World Record twice, an event that constituted over 2800 dancers in 2010 and over 5700 dancers in 2012 in the International Kuchipudi Dance Convention, Hyderabad. Currently I am undergoing training for Pre- Proficiency Grade of Kuchipudi dance.

Smt. Lakshmi Rajamani, a renowned name in Kuchipudi Dance is the disciple of Late Guru Vedantam Prahalad Sharma. She is the founder of Lakshmi Kuchipudi Center established in 1980. The Government of Karnataka has honoured her with Karnataka Kalashree in 2000-01. She was the first in Karnataka to obtain a Master Degree, M.A., Kuchipudi Dance and also holds Diploma in Kuchipudi Yakshaganam. She has earned laurels and carved a niche for herself in the field of Kuchipudi Dance.
