Residency at Butler Middle School for Cambodian New Year

“The Khmer New Year celebrations continue! This morning, the Butler Middle School held their 26th Annual Khmer New Year Celebration with the Angkor Dance Troupe. The Butler community and the Troupe have a long-standing partnership, which has taught many students about traditional Cambodian dance over the years. This year's program featured Butler students who have been rehearsing relentlessly since March. They were incredible! The audience, which included 3rd graders from the Washington Elementary School (who were very grateful to be invited by their pals at the Butler), thoroughly enjoyed the Blessing Dance, Fishing Dance, Phoeung Neary Dance, Coconut Dance, and Swa Pol (Monkey Dance).”
