Highlights Archives: Apsara Dance

Apsara Dance is a popular Khmer classical performance known by various names in English, such as Khmer royal ballet and Cambodian court dance. For most travelllers, no visit to Cambodia is complete without attending Apsara Dance. Traditional Khmer dance generally brings ancient Khmer culture to life through its dancers, singers and instruments. Apsara dance has a grounded, subtle, and feather-light appearance. The dance is exceptionally unique with its elaborate costuming, tight posture, fingers flexed backwards, arched back and feet, codified facial expressions, slow, deliberate but flowing movements. It presents themes, messages and stories inspired primarily by the Reamker or the Ramayana and the Age of Angkor. The countless Apsaras or celestial dancers adorning the walls of Angkorian temples may suggest that this classical dance has been part of Khmer culture for over a millennium, making the source of the tradition impossible to trace. Much of traditional dance is inspired by Angkorian-era art and themes, but the tradition has not been passed unbroken from the age of Angkor. In the past, the Apsara dance was the Royal dance, performed only before Royalty to commemorate their dynastic ancestors and to honor the gods.
