“A colorful event”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

Great dancers, with varied sequences and styles. This is a great experience and we all really enjoyed it. Get a a paper at the entrance with the explanations of the meaning of the dances.

After the dance, you may see them walk on fire!

“Nice, but 1 hour is too long”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

Nice to see the beautiful costumes and the way they dance, but 1 hour is too long. Half hour should be enough. When you take the east exit of the temple with the tooth you can choose different dance theatres. We went to the red cross theatre. They also give a fireshow with walking over the fire which is impressive.

“Tourists love this”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

We saw the dancing while we were in Kandy, but it was not very special. Performance was ok, 2 gat dancers, balance quit poor. But since there is basically nothing else to do for Families in Kandy this was the best we could think off.

“Tourist Trash”
Reviewed August 23, 2012

Didn't enjoy the cultural show. The dancers looked like they had been practising for all of 1/2 an hour before the show and the fire breathing and walking at the end was nothing you can't see in any city on any day of the week.
