The Chitrasena Kalayathanaya, after 25 years of moving from place to
place, is finally heading to a permanent home at 590, Elvitigala Mawatha,

complete, which includes basic facilities such as a large dance hall
with a wooden floor, two small changing rooms, office, pantry, toilets
and utility room for the storage of instruments, custumes, sets etc.
The Chitrasena Kalayathanaya is accepting new students for enrolment
throughout the month of January 2007 on Saturdays from 8 am - 12 noon,
at its new premises next to the Apollo Hospital. They have to be seven
years or older.
The Chitrasena Dance Company is also seeking senior dancers (over 19

Auditions will be held on Monday, January 8th (5-6.30 p.m.), Wednesday,

children's ballet is in the works for 2007 - 'Kumbi Kathawa' and
