Me and my family really enjoyed our visit at this art school. Lovely children performing traditional dances and gave us the possibility to join in! Way better than the professional shows! Please support this NGO that provide free art education to kids!

We had read about this Academy in the Daily Telegraph (even left them with a copy which they were delighted with). They will put on a show just for you - they are all youngsters - do go and support them.

Somewhat difficult for our hotel Tuk Tuk driver to find but we were welcomed warmly and treated to four dances by the students just for us. Some of the dances came from nature and the hand movements were explained to us following the dances. Truly...More
