What is Kinnaly?

Kinnaly Lao Traditional Music & Dance Troupe is a Laotian music and dance troupe and specialty school that holds Lao traditional music and dance classes every Sunday from January-June. Kinnaly is a cultural arts program of Pom Foundation, a tax-exempt 501(c)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to preserve, foster, transmit, and educate about Lao arts, culture, and traditions.

Kinnaly was founded in 2002 by the late Pom Outama Khampradith and is now managed by three of her original first dance students. Over the years, Kinnaly has grown tremendously and today is comprised of over 50 Lao-American youth ages 5 to 25 who come together every Sunday in Burien, Washington for traditional Lao music and dance classes and perform for various functions/organizations across the United States sharing their culture and passion for heritage preservation.

The Kinnaly program continues to carry on their founder's legacy and focuses on fostering a community for Lao-American youth to preserve, foster, transmit and educate about Lao arts.
