Teenagers from several child protection groups will perform a rare contemporary dance piece on Sunday at Gasolina restaurant as part of the Dance Made in Cambodia project.
Twenty-seven 13 to 19-year-olds from four NGOs will perform the piece choreographed and taught over eight weeks by Stephen Bimson, a dance teacher from Dance Made in Cambodia.
Khan Chantrea, 13, a student from the Cambodian Organization for Living and Training, said she was nervous to have her first performance in front of a live audience.
“I expect my performance will be good and I will try my best to be successful,” Chantrea said.
“I will not show my nervous feelings.” The performance is part of a community dance project that works with underprivileged children in NGOs, Bimson said.
“Dance is not totally the driving force behind what we do,” Mr. Bimson said.
“We use dance as a vehicle to teach other skills that will help the kids with their future careers, in whatever they decide to go into.”
The performance starts at 5:45 p.m.
