Angkor Dance Troupe (ADT) was established in November 1986 when Tim Thou and a passionate group of Cambodian refugees came together in Lowell, Massachusetts, to revive a once almost lost culture. Our mission is to connect communities through the preservation, education and innovation of Cambodian Performing Arts. Through its classes and the high-quality performances by its dancers, ADT maintains the integrity of Cambodian performing arts and traditions while adapting to societal changes and developing the next generation of dancers, teachers, mentors, and leaders.
ADT is nationally recognized as one of the most accomplished and experienced U.S.-based Cambodian traditional arts organizations. The troupe was recently featured in programs such as “The Arts ‘Postdemic'” Highlight WBUR, Channel 5 Boston’s CityLine (WCVB), as well as being featured in a full-length documentary entitled “Monkey Dance.” Over its 35+ year history, Angkor Dance Troupe has represented the City of Lowell throughout the United States, including performing at the All-America City Competition, Boston’s First Night Celebration, and even at the White House.
