Connecting communities through the preservation, education, and innovation of Cambodian performing arts.
Angkor Dance Troupe was established in November 1986 when Tim Thou and a passionate group of Cambodian refugees came together in Lowell, Massachusetts with the sole purpose to revive a culture once almost lost.
As the heart of the Cambodian Community, the Angkor Dance Troupe is nationally recognized as one of the most accomplished and experienced U.S. - based Cambodian traditional arts organizations.
A few features include:
Philadelphia All-America City Competition
Boston's First Night
Monkey Dance (Documentary) - website
Travel Channel - Bizarre Foods - website
"Neighborhood Kitchens" (WGBH) - website
Angkor Dance Troupe (ADT) teaches and performs a body of work developed at the Royal University of Fine Arts (RUFA) in Phnom Penh, Cambodia - where they are considered the world’s cultural source and standard bearer for traditional Cambodian arts. ADT's Artistic Director, Phousita Huy is a master teacher and former faculty member of the Royal University. She toured internationally as a principal dancer with the Classical Dance Company of Cambodia.
Accompanied by a team of esteemed master teachers from RUFA, our mission is to heal our community and share the history of traditional Cambodian performing arts.
Check our calendar for live public performances or book us for your next event.
Dance | Music | Khmer Language
We envision Lowell, Massachusetts to be the epicenter for Cambodian performing arts with the Angkor Dance Troupe at the core.
To achieve this vision, our goal is to certify 10 new master teachers to continue the legacy of Cambodian culture and arts.
Through cultural exchanges and programs including dance, music, and Khmer Language class, students will learn how to explain the history and stories of the Cambodian people through the power of facial/body language, musical composition, and lyrical speech.
