PAMPA Academy, under the leadership of Dr. Purna Prasad, is supported by Bindu Madhava, Sudheendra Tumkur, Nirmala Madhava, Subhashini Gunapu.
The entire original dance dramas and ballets presented by PAMPA are free of the conventional and the common place. PAMPA’s creations are steeped with innovative insights and approach. The presentations are unpretentious and devoid of any complicated pseudo-intellectual patterns. The message flows through smoothly and thrills the audience with its sheer simplicity.
Another feature of the academy is its superb presentation of almost all the classical forms of Indian dance such as Bharathanatyam, Kathakali, and Kathak. Gorgeous and traditional costumes, exhaustive research and well rehearsed performances lend an air of authenticity to the performances, which are visual feast.
PAMPA offers dance classes in Bharathanatyam and Kathak, music classes in Karnatic Vocal, and Karnatic instruments Veena and Mrudangam. Students are trained thoroughly in both the theoretical and practical aspects of performing arts. They are also trained in the aesthetics of theater and stage performance. Talented students are given opportunities to take pivotal roles in ballets and dance dramas produced by the academy.
