“

Throughout history, dance has played a critical role in shaping and defining Sri Lankan identity and culture through its practice in religious traditions, ceremonies for royalty, and in the daily activities of villagers. In recent years, many of these traditions have been fading and more commercialized “quasi-traditional” dance forms have been gaining popularity. For these reasons, doing what we can through education and training is critical to help preserve the authentic traditions that have been passed on for so many generations.” 

More than 20 dancers, most of whom are local residents of Sri Lankan descent, will perform elegant and dynamic movements that typify these dances. Asanga Domask_Blue
