The Palace Dancers of Cambodia, once one of the finest Asian troupes in the world, perform two dances from the classical repertoire: "Indra''s Garden and the Queen of the Apsaras," and "Mekhala and the Diamond." There is a demonstration of styles and commentary on training methods and Faubion Bowers, Asian arts expert, talks with an 18-year-old star dancer who demonstrates bending the wrist backward, hyperflexing the elbow, and balancing on one foot. This film was made before the political upheavals in Cambodia virtually destroyed that country and either killed or exiled The Palace Dancers.
