Folk and classic dances of Kerala?

I'll be visiting Trivandrum on April 21-22. I'd like to see classic dances of Kerala. Could anyone suggest places that I could go in Trivandrum area to see such performances?

Thanks Deepa. That was great. I'll look into it when I'm out there.

Among unique cultural events of Kerala, what else people recommend to see given my very short stay in Trivandrum?

The Kerala festival calendar is here:

www.keralatourism.org/festivalcalendar.php

I couldn't find any on the dates you are visiting.

There will be local events, which get listed in the daily newspaper.

Hi,

This is the season of temple festivals in Kerala. And some sorts of traditional dance performances will be conducted at the temples as part of the festival. I would suggest all to watch the Kathakali or classical dance performance conducted as part of temple festival than watching the performances conducted by hotels. The performances conducted by hotels lacks traditional touch. Do check with the locals or check in the news papers regarding the local temple festivals.

Best Regards,
