- The Kuchipudi performance usually begins with an invocation. Then, each costumed actor is introduced, their role stated, and they then perform a short preliminary dance set to music (dharavu). Next, the performance presents pure dance (nritta).
- This is followed with by the expressive part of the performance (nritya), where rhythmic hand gestures help convey the story.Vocal and instrumental Carnatic music in the Telugu language accompanies the performance. The typical musical instruments in Kuchipudi are mridangam, cymbals, veena, flute and the tambura.
- Kuchipudi maintains realistic make-up and simple dressing which is very much a characteristic of women from Kerala.
- The popularity of Kuchipudi has grown within India, and it is performed worldwide
- So dress your little one in this dance costume to make her understand the beauty of this classical dance form.
