Every Sunday we hold traditional Lao music and dance classes at Momentum Dance Academy in Burien, Washington. Classes take place every Sunday from January through June with open registration in December. During summer break, many of our students attend our parent organization's, Pom Foundation, Lao Summer Day-Camp the first two weeks of August.

All of our music and dance classes are taught by junior instructors (advance level students who have been in the program for over five years). Each class has at least two junior instructors and one adult (Kinnaly Co-Founder or Pom Foundation Officer) who oversees the overall classroom. Minimum age requirement: 8-years old.

Students may bring their own instruments OR use one of the our instruments (very limited) to learn. We recommend each student having their own instrument so they may practice at home, but we understand that the Lao classical instruments are expensive and difficult to find. At this time we currently do not rent out or sell instruments as they're very expensive to purchase and ship from Laos. However, we are actively working to make this an option in the near future!
