Past: Wednesday, October 19, 2016

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.
