Invited by ISEAA for the third time, dance principals from Cambodian Living Arts, Phnom Penh, conducted a 3-day workshop for over 160 students participating in the third and final installation of the Academy-wide project, Angkor Wat III.

The workshop aimed to introduce to students some aspects of the Cambodian culture through two dance types - the coconut folk dance as well as the Apsara dance (traditional Cambodian ballet), as well as to provide a platform from which students may draw inspiration in conceptualising their learning outcomes.
