Ivan Pulinkala, founding director of Kennesaw State University’s dance program, received the Cobb Symphony Orchestra’s Award for Artistic Excellence, the first award of its kind presented by the symphony.

Pulinkala is artistic director of the KSU dance company, and has been director of the dance program at the university since 2005. Prior to his work at KSU, Pulinkala was choreographer and director of Delhi Music Theatre in India before moving to the U.S. in 1998 to pursue a master’s degree in dance.

Pulinkala received the symphony award earlier this month during the Cobb Symphony Master Works Concert at the Murray Arts center of Mount Paran Christian School in Kennesaw. KSU offers a bachelor’s of arts degree in dance and enrolls more than 80 dance majors
