Andhra Pradesh becomes the first state to introduce Dance into curriculum

In perhaps what could be seen as first instance of a dance form being incorporated as part of the regular schools in the country, the AP government is reportedly making learning of Kuchipudi compulsory for all the state syllabus schools, including private schools, right from Class V to VIII. The classical dance form, that had originated in Krishna district, would be reportedly taught from the next academic year.

While the theory classes will be reportedly made compulsory, the practical ones is expected to be optional. For those students choosing the practicals, a four-year diploma certificate is being awarded to those successful students.

K Sasibabu, deputy secretary of AP youth, tourism and culture department, has revealed that Chief minister Chandrababu Naidu is keen about introducing a comprehensive plan for promotion of Kuchipudi both in India and abroad and as part of this latest initiative, lessons regarding Kuchipudi would  be introduced to the high school students.

The theory lessons for Kuchipudi were prepared by Dr Vedantam Ramalinga Sastri, who is currently principal of Siddendra Yogi Kuchipudi Kalakshetram in Kuchipudi of Krishna district, affiliated to the Potti Sriramulu University . The lessons were sent recently to the State Council of Education Research and Training (SCERT) for their approval and the state authorities are expecting permission to be granted.
