The therapeutic effects of Kuchipudi dance are
rooted in its elegance and graceful movements. With momentary emotions,
monumental postures and musical movements of the dancer, Kuchipudi is more than
sheer dancing. More than any other dance form, Kuchipudi works on the body
balance of the dancers a lot. Alluring dance moves are performed while
balancing the whole body on a brass plate with a vessel on one’s head.
Kuchipudi is believed to reduce the risks of osteoporosis by strengthening
bones, especially those of legs.
