The association le Ballet Classique Khmer (BCK), or ‘Classical Khmer Ballet’ of Paris aims at preserving, transmitting, and making the millennial art of classical Cambodian dance known.
Funded in 1976 by SAR, the Princess Vacheahra Norodom and by dancers from the Royal Ballet from Phnom Penh, the association, thanks to the many performances made across France and the world, participated in the recognition of this art, which has been registered as part of the global immaterial heritage by the UNESCO. The teaching of the dance is provided by masters of renown, on a weekly basis. The ballet is composed of Cambodian, French with Cambodian origins or French men and women of all ages. Several children of the first generation of Cambodian refugees who sought shelter in France found, through this association, a way to connect with their cultural roots.
