The show is in evening hours. load drums keep playing throughout the show. On some points good to listen to but sometimes it becomes annoying. Some dancers were really good to see when they perform different stunts. Synchronization between the dancers poor. Seems like a long show while watching. Overall an average show! You can go if you had nothing... More

1h traditional dance show. The male part is nice, the female part not very creative. It os not expansive, so you get what you pay for.

If you are going and expecting to see a Westend production, don't bother however the performers were enthusiastic and competent. It was worth the visit. Try to get a good view of the fire walking at the end!

Upon arrival the first 4 front rows on the bottom and first 2 front rows on the top floor had reserved signs placed... More

If you really have no other plans for that day you still should skip this place . If I knew it was with this level I would've went for a walk instead

Kids loved it. Not too long. Dancers seemed to enjoy what they were doing. Fire pit at the end a bit scary for little kids

There total 12 dance forms performed during the show. It starts with welcome dance then fire dance, harvest dance, peacock dance,instrumental duet and many more forms. The girls nd boys are very gracious in their dance and also very acrobatic. It's a must watch activity for families and couples as well.

You can get this kind of show in two main places: 1- the Kandy lake Club 2- the Kandyan Cultural Centre. We were advised by a local to go to the Cultural Center as you have the opportunity there to watch the show from a balcony, while in the other place everyone is seated in ground floor facing stage. Apart... More
