Channa specializes in all form of traditional and creative dancing in Sri Lanka, namely “Kandyan, Sabaragamuwa, Low Country” and his own creative contemporary style which he calls “Body Language”, which is based on “Thribanga”:signifiying the three curves of a woman’s body and is a flexible style performed by his graceful young dancers.
