Jaikishore hails from an artist's family, the son of Chennai violinist Sri
M.S. Rao. He began his dance career at the age of seven under Padmabhushan Guru
Dr. Vempati Chinna Satyam of the Kuchipudi Art Academy, Chennai. In the 18 years
he trained under his guru, he became an accomplished dancer with an uncanny understanding
of the nuances of the art. Mastering the intricacies of the Kuchipudi style, Jaikishore
excelled in important roles in his guru's ballets and solo performances. His technical
perfection, incomparable flexibility, and complete transformation into the character
he depicted won him patronising reviews and accolades. In recognition as an excellent
performer and an understanding teacher, Jaikishore was awarded the title 'NATYA
VISHAARADA,' by Kuchipudi Arts Academy in March 1999, and the title of YUVA
KALA VIPANCHEE by the Vipanchee Trust headed by PadmaVibhushan Dr. M. Balamurali
Krishna in December 2004.
has presented various group and duet performances at various prestigious festivals:
ability to control the orchestra and run it smooth through out the show, does
not limit him to wielding cymbals just for kuchipudi but also for bharatanatyam
and mohiniattam. As a nattuvanar, he has traveled all over India, United States,
Europe and middle east countries to name a few.
wife and disciple of Sri. Kishore Mosalikanti, was initiated into dance at a young
age and has eventually grown to be a kuchipudi exponent. Though her initial training
was in bharatanatyam, Kuchipudi became her passion after she joined Kuchipudi
Kala Kendra Mumbai in 1995 under the tutelage of Sri.M.S.R.Murty, a senior disciple
of Padmabhushan guru Dr.Vempati Chinna Satyam. She very soon mastered the basic
nuances of the art form and became an important part of Kala Kendras troupe
giving group and solo performances. She has also played major roles in the dance-dramas.
She has won the acclaim of Critics and Connoisseurs of art, for her apt portrayal
of the role Satyabhama in the traditional Kuchipudi dance ballet Sri
Krishna Parijatam. She has also received rave reviews in the local dailies
for the same. She has been a great support to her teacher in training students
and also during lecture demonstrations where she even held the podium.
With an urge to know the art form from its roots and to learn about its rich heritage, she was drawn to the village kuchipudi. The little facts that she learnt there caught her deep interest and inspired her to complete the post graduate course in Kuchipudi dance, from Sri Siddhendra Yogi Kuchipudi Kala Peetham, affiliated to Potti Sriramulu Telugu University, Hyderabad. That a dancer should know not just the grammer (Natya Shastram) and literature(language and poetry) of dance but also the science (technique) and math (rhythm) of that particular style, is her prime idea while learning and she insists on the same for her students. As a part of Sri. Kishores ensemble, padmavani has danced in various dance festival.
