Guru Amrita Lahiri
Room No 03-09
Guru Amrita who hails from New Delhi is recognised as one of the foremost young performers of Kuchipudi today. She began learning at age 7 in Washington, D.C. studying under Anuradha Nehru until she shifted to New Delhi at age 15. After her Arangetram debut at the India International Centre in New Delhi in 1996, for which she was critically acclaimed as 'first-class professional material', she continued to perform Kuchipudi, and also started learning Bharatanatyam under Leela Samson. She has toured as a soloist in India, USA, Switzerland, South Korea, and Southeast Asia, presenting Kuchipudi from its traditional origins to its contemporary forms.
Guru Amrita joined SIFAS in February 2017.
