The founder, Ravynn Karet-Coxen, opened the program explaining dancers spend 12 years in training - and it shows. Their dance movements are very precise and deliberate. I was especially impressed by their muscle control, one dancer sat, leaning on one arm motionless for at least...More

We were in awe of such talented aesthetic dancers! Their devotion and hard work was very evident in this performance. I left with a new found curiosity of this mystical art form!

Very nice dance. I recommend. It is performed in place apart from the city centre, because the dance scene is outside, so the surroundings must be quiet. It is not a mass tourism, seats for less than 50 people I think.

This was one of the highlights of my trip. There is a very small seating area which only fits around 20 people, so its very intimate. The stage is in a garden with beautiful trees. The dancers are phenomenal - beautiful, professional and captivating. We...More

Very nice show at a lovely property. They have a big stage for the dancers and you are seated in gazebo with only about 25 guests. Compare that to the big touristy shows with crowds and noise. The emphasis is on art and helping the...More

Thank you for coming to support the Sacred Dancers of Angkor and seeing the legend carved on Angkor wall come to life. Sadly the flute player will not be able to improve as it is the Khmer flute and not the conventional European flute and...More

A must-do in Siem Reap! The venue is small, intimate and beautiful. Every seat is a good one! The dancers are highly skilled and their costumes look stunning onstage. I was entranced the whole time! At the end the dancers talk a bit about their...More

Loved meeting the wonderful dancers in an up close and person showing of their beautiful dance techniques. Their performance tells the story of a country persecuted and through perseverance and faith - survives. The dancers are elegant and professionally trained through years of hard work.

Most enjoyable, skilled presentation requiring dancers’ dedicated years of practice to perfect. Recommend a visit if you are in Siem Reap.

Great show, hope they can improve the seating arrangement. People coming later and seating behind can hardly see the beautiful performance. You really want the guests to see the culture.

Hi, for the children under 12 years old they need a ticket. The price is 15$ for them. The best way is to book by email or phone, because for the moment you cannot buy a ticket for the children online.

Sorry for the delay, but I have been away. Please email on the contact email to organise tickets directly - this way you don't have to pay unnecessary commission to hotels or tuk tuk drivers. Hope this helps
