She said at the school events she has danced Blessing Dance (Robam Choun Por), Robam Neary Chea Chuor, The Pestle Dance (Robam Koah-Ang-Reh), Robam Ken, The Fishing Dance (Robam Nesat) and Robam Kroma.

Solita loves the costumes and the elegance of the dance, saying it represents “represents beauty”. She wishes she could change the minds of some of her friends who aren’t interested in traditional dance because they view it as too old and unfashionable.

Solita wants to know what steps she could take to try and become a Royal Ballet dancer?
