Sarvani Yadavalli, who has featured in our earlier editions of the newsletter, has been a consistent newsmaker since then.
Her performance at the Opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games 2010 has made it evident that she is set to pave a bright path for her dancing. This gracious dancer, who performed many stage shows, has also donned a new role as a choreographer; she choreographed for a dance on the occasion of 21st national meet of WIPS (Women in Public Sector) with the theme “Gender justice- Key to achieve the millennium development goals” held at Hotel Asiana, Chennai on Feb 11, 2011. The dance piece was well received by the audience and the show was marked for its novelty where a new trend of Kuchipudi dance was performed along with extraordinary music which is a fusion of traditional carnatic and western beats (Music Credits: Band Agam). The dance started in a slow pace and the gradual rise in the tempo to a very fast note enthralled the audience. The national meet headed by Ms. Rachel Mathew from IOCL and coordinated by Ms. Selvi Ravindran, WIPS President, southern region witnessed around 770 women from different public sectors of our country.
