Khmer classical dance, the ballet-like performance art of Cambodia is frequently called Apsara Dance. This name reflects the belief that the Khmer classical dance of today is connected by an unbroken tradition to the dance practiced in the courts of the Angkorian monarchs, which in turn drew its inspiration from the mythological court of the gods and from its celestial dancers - the Apsaras.
