Through hip hop dance, traditional Khmer dance, theater and story telling, Sokeo Ros shared his life story: how, born in a Cambodian refugee camp in Thailand and raised in a Providence, Rhode Island neighborhood filled with gangs, poverty and violence, he found meaning, expression and connection through hip hop and dance. This collaboration between Arts Alliance of Northern New Hampshire and PSU Dance Division provided approximately 750 students across New Hampshire with the opportunity to work directly with Sokeo through lecture demonstrations, workshops, classes and performances.
