Vadithallu is almost similar to Kolkali and is a folk dance in which artists tap the short sticks held in both hands an dance around.Sometimes it is performed on a specially constructed wooden stage .Thus the name thattinmelkali. The rhythm of this dance is set by a harmonious synchronisation of the tapping of the feet to the striking of sticks. The movement is circular and the artists sing as they dance and strike the sticks in unison. Though the dancers break away to form different patterns, they never miss a beat.
