CAGE put in some WORK this past New Year's celebration with the Cambodian Association of Greater Philadelphia (our fiscal sponsor!). CAGP's 38th Annual Cambodian New Year Celebration was on Saturday, April 8th, 2017. It was located at the Hilton Hotel in South Philadelphia, just off of Columbus Blvd.
CAGE members Linda and Lanica spent the afternoon and majority of the evening in the dressing room getting all of the dancers dressed and ready to go for their big night. CAGP's Annual Cambodian New Year Celebration is the culminating event for CAGP's Culture & Language Program. Dyliyah, a CAGE member, is the dance instructor at CAGP's Culture & Language Program. She spent the year teaching and coordinating the program with the help of volunteers and other CAGP staff. Every April, all of CAGP's dancers are given the opportunity to perform in front of a large audience and show off what they learned throughout the year. In addition, CAGE members, Cynthia and Dyliyah, performed Robam Tep Menorom for the banquet audience. Performances by CAGP's Culture & Language Program included: Robam Choun Por, Robam Tivea Propei, Robam Neary Chea Chour, and Khmer Social Dance. Shout out to all of the performers and volunteers who made the night a success!
