How to sell it

  • Suitable for all travel styles but higher budget
  • It is completely different form the touristic representation you can have around Cambodia. Here the show is only focus on the tradition and on the real Apsara dance performance that the old dynasties/previous kings used to see represented. (Other shows in town are doing 5-6 scenes with different type of dance only presented for tourist.)
  • There is a very deep and archive work made by the foundation in order to save this Khmer art
  • The performance represents over 10 years of devotion and practice to the vast repertoire of Khmer classical ballet techniques.
  • Higher quality of Apsara performance in Cambodia & Siem Reap
  • Support a charitable project of The New Nginn Karet Foundation for Cambodia (NKFC)
  • A private and very nice Khmer house, located along Siem Reap riverside, just few minutes’ drive from the city center
  • Easy to include in itineraries at the beginning of the evening

Why this activity

  • Supporting a prestigious school recognized by the Royal family of Cambodia which only works on donation basis. We highly recommend this outstanding visit for travelers interested in experiencing and supporting the great cause of the conservation of high-class, Cambodian heritage.
  • It is a ballet/ a representation and not any other “aspa” show you can find in town. This one doesn’t even comport dinner it is because they are here to perform such a ballet representation following the previous tradition
  • Feel the real spirituality of Cambodian culture thorough the dance
  • Here, students learn the real discipline it takes to perform the ancient Khmer traditional dance, with a lot of dedication and connection to the religion.
  • All the performers do themselves their own costume made of natural elements
  • All performers train since their youngest age in order to have the specific requirement to be an apsara ballet dancer (curve fingers, curve feets ..)
  • One of the dancers had been sacred by the princess of Cambodia
  • They performed more and more around the world when the royal family visits

Good to combine with
