- Traditional dance classes
All year long, traditional dance classes are offered to the Foyer Lataste’s children and opened to the neighborhood children. Boys and girls train regularly to represent the Foyer and the association at shows that take place during certain official events. The Apsara dance is fully integrated in the culture and in the Khmer tradition.
