Initiated into Kuchipudi at the age of seven under the guidance of Voleti Rangamani, Director of Abhinaya Darpana Arts Academy, Kopal has also trained under eminent gurus like Dr Anuradha Jonnalagadda, Dr Aruna Bhikshu, Swapna Sundari, Madabhushanam Badrinath and Deepika Reddy. Apart from mastering the traditional repertoire, she has also learnt the rare art of picture painting dance. A postgraduate in Performing Arts (Kuchipudi) from University of Hyderabad, recipient of a scholarship for young artists of the Ministry of Culture, Govt of India, and author of Dancing Doras (on tribes of Andhra Pradesh), Kopal has travelled extensively in India and overseas as a cultural ambassador through ICCR. Her well executed rhythmic patterns, animated nritta and lively abhinaya have won her appreciation from dance critics.

Kopal has prepared for her vocation both as a professional dancer and a teacher, through multifaceted experience in academics, stage performances and choreography. She runs a dance school, Kaivalya Academy of Art & Culture, where she trains the new generation of dancers.
