Thanks for posting that article. I am married to a Cambodian that wanted to learn to dance. But instead spent her childhood in camps to escape Pol Pot and once in the US had to work long hours to feed the family so she never learned the dance.

Sounds like someone is trying to carry on the Cambodian traditions.
