Definitely set up for tourists, and sort of interesting, although sometimes you wonder if they really still do those dances anywhere of if it's just for tourists. Still worth a visit, but not over something else.

The price is reasonable at 500 Rupees, but I was expecting more. I have seen better coordination at a middle school dance play. The performers kept dropping props and some of them were boarding retirement age.

The growls on the faces of these performers makes the dance much less convincing. I have seen more enthusiasm from a cheap prostitute that is about to finish her night shift.

Overall- if you don't have anything else better to do, check out the performance, but don't expect some cirque du soleil

Dancers & fire breathers had nice performance. But the price of ticket is high, compared to the performance & maintenance level.

The 'music' is mostly repetitive drumming with a squeaky flute to accompany the dancers. Fire walking was impressive though.

Do not miss the event; I missed it as family rushing to go to hotel after long trip from Colombo. Driver told me about and I was planing to stop and attend it.
