Welcome to our Session III Activities page! The final part of the semester began with the student dance performance and a community gathering at the ISLE Center. After the fun, the students departed to locations scattered throughout Sri Lanka for their Independent Field Studies.

After classes, the students prepared for their dance performance. Above, a student receives help with the traditional Kandyan makeup for the performance.
After preparing their costumes, the students posed for a group photo (above), showing off a few of the moves from their dance performance.
After the playful group photo, the students posed for a more serious photo with their dance instructors.
The male students showed off their skills with the dance instructor in this photo (above) before the performance.
The female students and Program Assistant Katie Seward (left) also posed for an action photo with their dance instructor.
Above, the students performed the traditional Kandyan dance routine for friends, host families, staff, and faculty at the ISLE Center.
To celebrate the end of Session II, the students took turns playing a version of Pinata as friends and host families looked on.
