Khmer Amarak Performing Arts
MC Hammer Pants vs. Kabeun
In this workshop, we will teach participants about the rich and long history of Khmer dance and why we are working so hard to preserve it for future generations. Workshop participants will get to learn Khmer stretches done before dancing and about the elegance and strength of the divine feminine. Lastly, workshop participants will learn how to dress up a few Khmer dancers in a kabeun...and be dressed themselves! All genders are welcome and no dance experience necessary. Participants should wear shorts above the knee (gym shorts), or close fitting pants.
Khmer Amarak Performing Arts is a youth-focused, traditional Khmer music and dance program of the Khmer Community of Seattle King County. We use traditional Khmer performing arts to (re)connect Khmer youth to their heritage and culture while also sharing the richness of Khmer arts with the larger community of Seattle and King County.
