The students were born in the sacred land of Angkor, where since 2007 they have trained 5 days a week, 6 hours per day in the full curriculum of classical, folk dances and traditional music in a strict discipline.
To fully connect with their spirituality, they spontaneously went to be ordained as Monks and Nuns for 10 days in 2013.
Besides being accomplished professional artists who have also performed internationally on the most prestigious stages in the USA and Japan to standing ovations, they have been trained with a spiritual dimension.
They are the only troupe in the world of dancers and musicians praying and meditating on a daily basis for Peace and for the Welfare of all Children.
The Conservatoire is situated in a very spiritual quadrant, where the troupe serves their Temples, Divinities and Gods in all the purity of their bodies, minds and souls. This specific identity of sacred dancers is fitting to their background to serve the tangible heritage of Angkor, with the intangible legacy of the classical ballet both listed as UNESCO treasures.
So far they have dedicated Buong Suong (spiritual rites) in the innovated form a gestural prayers, offering profound rituals of propitiation to 34 Angkorian Temples, as well as addressing spiritual rites in support of the souls and families of tragic situations in the world.
