Thank you for your generous review. We are thrilled that you enjoyed your experience at our school. The kids love performing (it’s quite obvious, isn’t it?) and there’s nothing more satisfying for them than a receptive audience. Please stay in touch on our Facebook page!!!

People just do not know about this cultural show. It is traditional dance by young people who are studying traditional Myanmar dance at the Inwa School. I wish more people would go and see it. Beautiful, artistic, authentic, with enthusiasm.More
