Srey Nuth: Dance
“I am very happy when the audience claps for us. This is what gives us the motivation to continue.”
Srey Nuth, 19, is a student of traditional Apsara dance at Phare Ponleu Selpak. When she first started taking classes at age 13, she had never seen a live dance performance before. “I had only ever seen traditional dancing on TV. I really loved to watch it, so I decided to become involved.”
At the time, Srey Nuth was studying at the public school at Phare Ponleu Selpak. Like all 1,200 students at the public school, which is run by the government, Srey Nuth could access arts classes for free during her free periods.
