The tradition of Khmer dance has been cultivated for at least 1,000 years but it has been threatened in recent times during periods of political turmoil. The Apsara Dance School was started in 1998 by Mrs. Vong Metry to revive this ancient and valuable art. The school trains orphan children in the Apsara dance arts and grows them into young professional dancers. It receives the endorsement of the Ministry of Culture and its main support from private donations. In 2003, UNESCO declared the dance a "Masterpiece of Oral and Intangible Culture", and laid plans for a regeneration of the art form.
