You find many styles of dancing and music when you visit different countries, but nothing will be as blissful as Sri Lankan Kandyan dancing is.
It’s an exciting dancing tradition
With energetic dancing moves, drum beats, and elegant clothing patterns, the Kandyan dancing style can attract the attention of anyone in just a second.
Kandyan Dancing at Kandy Perahera
One of the most spectacular events in Sri Lanka annually held in July- August is the Kandy Perahera. If you get the chance to witness this event, you’ll also be able to explore the beauty of the Kandyan dancing tradition.
Other places to watch Kandyan dancing
According to Kandy Escapes, the Kandyan Art Association and Cultural Centre, Kandy Lake Club, and Mahanuwara YMBA host dance shows. So, while in Kandy, make sure you allocate some time to visit one of these places too for a great experience.
The best experience
One of the best places to visit in Kandy is the Kandy Lake Club to witness the richness of the Sri Lankan traditions. Their performances include Kandyan dancing and ‘fire walking’ sessions marking the conclusion of the shows. Go there a bit early to secure your spot.
