More Country Speak

Have questions or resources regarding Khmer Culture? This forum is all about the Kingdom of Cambodia's culture. Khmer language, Cambodian weddings, French influence, Cambodian architecture, Cambodian politics, Khmer customs, etc? This is the place. Living in Cambodia can cause you to experience a whole new level of culture shock, so feel free to talk about all things related to the Khmer people, and their traditions. And if you want something in Khmer script translated into English, you will probably find what you need.

people who do that crap should go back to what they used to do when music came on... become a wallflower. .. maybe sounds harsh but ...

its like a meme
i think everyone have their own interpretation of dancing style and this varies from country to country so what's good in a country may not be good in another country due to differing cultural values, influence, etc etc.

in short, your dancing style/appreciation is american, and that dancing style in the youtube video is cambodian. different world. that's that. there's no right or wrong.


yea, I agree w/ you on that.. .Makes sense...

thats exactly what fascinated me the first time i went to a khmer club with my ex 5 year ago,
we used to go every night and i was mesmerised by their dancing
it was so unorthodox, is the word i would use
the dancing is off beat, and completely random
you couldnt dance like that anywhere else in the world
and its not dancing that is easy to do either,
you just really have to let go of your inhibitions and take away the factor you probably look like a complete idiot lol

i love it

Americans and their perceived dancing prowess.. So feel free to post a video of yourself doing some fashionable east coast dance of the week, and we'll be the judge of whether or not you look like a fuckwit.

it doesn't have to be " east coast" dancing..and i understand what your saying...i just don't think u can call that dancing... i guess dancing is like art? its subjective?? .. or maybe if the person doing it says they are dancing so that means they are dancing??
dancing is art, its an expression of emotion, who is the one to judge?
