Jayashree Acharya Kathak Dancer Profile

Jayashree Acharya grew up in Ayodhya, a small town in Uttar Pradesh, with a large history and heritage. She inherited the love for painting from her mother and, even as a child, added music to the shapes and images she created on the canvas of her artistic soul - and a dancer was born. Many have commented later.. " watching Jayashree dance is like experiencing miniature painting in motion."

Jayashree was introduced to formal training in KATHAK BY SHRI SANT GOPAL MISHRA IN AYODHYA. Convinced by her talent and passion for the art form, her parents sent her to KATHAK KENDRA, NEW DELHI, for higher training. Jayashree studied with GURU SMT. REBA VIDYARTHI FOR TWO YEARS AND IN 1986 THE LEGENDARY MASTER PADMAVIBHUSHAN PANDIT BIRJU MAHARAJ accepted her as his disciple.

There was no looking back since then. For the next few years, at KATHAK KENDRA, Jayashree devoted herself to intense riyaz with total commitment to her chosen art form and to the creative ethos of her great Guru as well as her artistic icon. The thriving art scene in and around KATHAK KENDRA nourished her ever-eager soul with creative inputs from concerts, workshops, exhibitions and close interactions with some of the greatest Guru-s and performers of the time.

She completed the POST DIPLOMA COURSE AT KATHAK KENDRA with flying colours.Jayashree was chosen to participate in most productions directed by PANDIT BIRJU MAHARAJ INCLUDING KATHA RAGHUNATH KI, AND KRISHNAYAN. She made optimum use of this great opportunity to watch the master at work while creating some of his best choreographic works. Jayashree's approach to choreography has been deeply inspired by that of her Guru, the multi faceted living legend, PANDIT BIRJU MAHARAJ.

Jayashree Acharya was awarded SRINGARMANI BY THE SUR SINGAR SAMSAD, MUMBAI AND IS ALSO A RECIPIENT OF THE GOVERNMENT OF INDIA SCHOLARSHIP.

Jayashree Acharya worked as a member of the well-known Repertory of KATHAK KENDRA and also worked at BHARTIYA KALA KENDRA, NEW DELHI. In 1994 Jayashree was invited by the UK centre of the BHARATIYA VIDYA BHAVAN as its RESIDENT KATHAK GURU.
