The folklore dances performances can sometimes be a bit amateurish... but the lake dance performance was a dight. A team.of professional dancers perform.their routine for a good hour. It is coulorful and entertaining. It ends by a walk.on hot coal... a very interesting activity.

Have to say there were times when I did wonder about the difference between UK and Sri Lanka health & safety regulations. Particularly during the fire dance and fire walk. All in all though it was an enjoyable hour spent

Went to the one held at Kandian Arts Center, next to the Sacred Tooth Temple and loved it. The show is just long enough without any waste of time, the dances are fun, left with a smile on my face.

We paid 1000 LKR per person and had great seats to watch this hour long show. Fantastic, colourful costumes and worth going along, although some of it was a bit repetitive. My daughter enjoyed the fire walking at the end.
