Overview
More
Spellbinding and genuinely authentic Apsara performances by the critically acclaimed Sacred Dancers of Angkor, who are full-time and fully trained dance students from the NKFC Conservatoire located next to Banteay Srei Temple. It is the first rural dance school in Cambodia and the first spiritual dance troupe in the world. For 10 years they have been praying daily for peace in the world and the welfare of children. The medium of dance and music not only has healed and reconciled the families who were still burying the traumas of the genocide with their traditional and cultural values, but also offers support to the children born in the sacred land of Angkor. Khmer Classical Dance is an intangible heritage to the tangible heritage of Angkor. Both are listed treasures of UNESCO. If not living their dreams by dancing, they would be earning dangerously in the fields, brick factories and constructions sites, or worse, prostitution.

This was a great show, very talented dancers in a natural open stage, sorrouded by nature. We were a bit tired after having spent our day at Ankor Wat so I recommend you attend the show on a night following not such a busy day....More

This performance was one of the highlights of my time in Cambodia. The audience was small, which created a strong sense of intimacy and connectedness. The musicians and dancers were talented, professional, and utterly captivating... I only wish the show would have been longer! Unlike...More

We learned about the Sacred Dancers of Angkor through Lara Dunston’s travel blog grantourismotravels. We were not disappointed. The venue is small and intimate and the performance mostly solemn and meditative (except the energetic monkey dances performed by male dancers). The costumes are gorgeous and...More

The evening was absolutely wonderful. If you're looking for something flashy and garish, look elsewhere. If you want to see a artistry and spirituality of Khmer dance you've come to the right place. We were so immersed we didn't realize how much time had passed!...More

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
