Tejaswi Kondapalli is a Kuchipudi artist from the San Francisco Bay Area, California, USA. She has had an innate passion for dance since her childhood. With her initial training in Kuchipudi from various Bay Area teachers (Smt. Shymala Karra, Smt. Vaidehi Yellai and Smt. Hima Bindu Challa).

She is a recipient of Fulbright Fellowship for Performing Arts and spent the 2010-2011 academic year living in Hyderabad, India. During this time, she conducted research on Tarangams and Kuchipudi dance, under the guidance of her current Guru, Dr. Uma Rama Rao. She also is grateful to Smt. Revathi Komanduri for enriching her repertoire during this time.

Undoubtedly, her time in India solidified her aspiration to continue research and performance of Kuchipudi dance, and instilled a passion for promoting the arts and educating audiences through her performances. As a result, she is actively involved in production and telecast of classical dance programs of Yuva Bharati, California.

Though her professional focus has been on Kuchipudi, Tejaswi is enthusiast for all forms of dance and loves any opportunity to get on her feet.
