Players Support Dancers

The Phnom Penh Players presented the Apsara School of Dance with the second

installment of a $1,000 donation on Mar 27 to support their activities. The

School, run by the University of Fine Arts dance teacher Vong Metry, teaches

classical dance to 75 poor children at no charge. Teachers at the school are

volunteers from the university.

"For me the school is an opportunity

tohelp poor children who cannot come [to the university] to access their own

culture," said Metry.

Phnom Penh Players board member George Taylor said

the Players chose the Apsara school as a grant recipient because the school's

aims "fit very well with [the Players'] goals" to support arts endeavors in

Cambodia.
