The Royal Lao Classical Dancers was founded by the former Royal Lao Dancer, Khamdy and his wife, Bangthong Chindavanh, in 1997. With the love of the cultural heritage and a goal to preserve and cherish the beautiful Lao cultures, Mr. and Mrs Chindavanh along with Mr. Sonnikhom Vanachitt, Ms. Vilayphone Kounlavong, and Ms. Thongchanh Sounthonevichit formed the Royal Lao Classical Dancers. The dancers at that time are the children and relatives of these founders. With the family system management, RLCD grew bigger and better every day.
