Thai dance and music originated in the royal court of old Siam. Old Sim is full of archaeological sites and objects, which are evidence of the evolution of Thai history and culture dating back several thousand years.
Not only rich in color and style, Classical costumes are also highly ornate and heavily embroidered especially the elaborate pointy headdresses which resemble the triangular shape of the ancient temple’s rooftop architecture.
Our extensive experience in performing has allowed us the opportunity to creatively ambark on different journeys back in time presenting the history, culture, customs and traditions of the Kingdom of Old Siam throught Thai music and dance.
The Thai Dance Troupe of Ottawa or its members have performed at numerous events in Ontario, Quebec, the USA, Italy, Trinidad Tobago, Jamaica, Indonesia, India, Myanmar, and Korea since 1987.
The troupe offers classes and workshops to members and the general public free of charge at our location above, please contact us for more details.
Traditional costumes are simpler, and reflect the way of life, costumes, tradtions, and religious beliefs from each region; the central, the north, the northeast and the south.
