<B>From Cambodia, Refined and Dandy</B> <BR>By Pamela Squires for The Washington Post<P><BR>Cambodian dance is as American as apple pie. The important thing that differentiates the Virginia reel from the Cambodian classical and folk dances performed Saturday at Arlington's Washington-Lee High School is time. The Virginia reel came to these shores with the English 300 years ago. Cambodian dance came with refugees in the 1970s.<P>The well-trained mix of performers in the Arlington-based Cambodian-American Heritage Dance Troupe, which presented the evening, symbolized the evolution of contemporary Cambodian dance in both East and West.<P><A HREF="" TARGET=_blank><B>click for more</B></A><BR>

In fact, everything continues as it must have done when this was a full, working performance space. "Before it was destroyed, this theatre was the best in Asia," says dancer Nup Samoeun, who has been with the company for 29 years. "Even though it has burned down, we still practise and do everything as before. We have no other place to go."

From a western perspective, the fact that this establishment manages to function and create works that tour the world is astounding.
