Closure on classical dance

Sam Sathya has been Cambodia’s prima ballerina for more than a decade. She's also a teacher at RUFA
In this my final post from yesterday's introduction to the highest-level of classical Cambodian dance, I hope my posts have given you a thirst for more of this unique art-form and I sign-off with a few remaining photos from the morning's performance. I was able to gain some backstage access though all in the troupe were so friendly and accommodating that everyone was welcome. And the truth be told, I think the girls simply love having their picture taken.

Thanks to Savin for my invite to the performance
