These girls in the picture take dancing class every week to learn the Kandyan dance. The dance encompasses various dance forms native to the area called Kandy of the central hills region in Sri Lanka. But today it has been widespread to other parts of the country. Even though originally only males were allowed to train as dancers, there are now several schools which also train women in the Kandyan dance form. And so does Home of Hope! The sari’s our girls are wearing are typical for the region. The girls have done a lot of practise this month and showed us their progression! We are very proud of them.
