$10 suggested admission
A small suggested admission is to help cover the overhead costs. As with all our programs/events, we aim to keep costs as low as possible so that everyone in the greater community can participate.
The performances are produced/taught by the four ajarns (Masters) here as part of the cultural exchange with the Lao National School of Music & Dance and the Lao National Art Ensemble in Vientiane, Laos.
The showcase will feature traditional Lao music and dance performances taught over the course of four weeks (two weeks Summer Intensive, two weeks Lao Summer Camp) and performed by 100 youth ages 5-18 who participated in the Lao Summer Camp and Summer Intensive programs.
Like all Pom Foundation programs and events, the effort and energy put in is 100% volunteer based and all donations/profits made go directly back into the organization.
