8 folk dances from around the country dazzle the senses in this hour-long performance by a local professional dance company. Live music and dance, along with a brief on-screen description of the dance, provides a glimpse into a rich cultural history and beautiful artistic expression of Cambodian life. Well worth the price of admission. So glad we went.

We saw the show with our kids aged 2, 4 and 6.5 and we all loved it. Beautiful dancing and costumes, very entertaining, elegant, done with good taste, and a great cause to rebuild the arts in Cambodia. A must see!

We decided to come to watch this show as a last minute activity as we had seen it advertised during the day, and honestly really enjoyed our evening! They show a variety of different traditional dances and the screen explains a little bit about it dance which helps you understand the history of the dance. This was really effective and... More

The dancing was good and you learnt about traditional dances. A great show to see to break up all the horror at the killing fields and genocide museum.

This was one of the most amazing things I did in Cambodia and I cannot recommend it more highly...an absolute must see! It's hosted at the National Museum. Standard tickets are $15. Premium seats are $25. Dinner package was $30. It's a small theatre so a standard ticket is fine. They perform several different dances from different Cambodian ethnic groups... More

I spent a wonderful evening in the presence of beautiful dancers, dressed in traditional costumes and who knew what they were doing. What's more, what seems like a pricey entrance ticket (approximately 15 dollars), is all for a good cause: helping hundreds of children in a difficult situation grow away from poverty, by learning traditional Cambodian art. The staff was... More

The show is well done and focuses on traditional dances – not only apsara which is only one of six or seven showed dances during the show. The audience can choose between two categories of tickets. VIP or standard. Free seating within each category. VIP are close to the stage with the dancers feet in head level. In my opinion,... More
