enthusiast in Kuchipudi dance form, started her studentship under Smt Padmanjali , Shri Uday Kanth and
Smt Renuka the age of four. The sojourn continued till she was 15.
She then joined Indian Bank and served for about 10 years. After getting married to Shri A V S C Prasad in
1998, she started practicing again in Tirupati under the guidance of Shri Konda Ravi Kumar.
Jnana if put into action turns into a beautiful craft.
With an urge to fulfill her thirst for knowledge, she pursued M.A. in Kuchipudi Dance under the tutelage of
Sri Bhagavathula Sethuram, Associate Professor of Kuchipudi Dance in Sri Potti Sreeramulu University,
Hyderabad . Shri Sethuram doesn’t need any introduction , as he belongs to the traditional Bhagavathula
family from the village, Kuchipudi in Krishna District of Andhra Pradesh , the origin for this traditional dance .
She was a distinctive student and attained gold medals.
Laurels are not a measure of art.
Presently Sreelatha is running this school of art, in Tarnaka, Secunderabad, where more than 140
disciples are being chiselled to perfection everyday.
