To make traditional Thai style dinner more memorable, many restaurants in Bangkok not only provide their guests with the subtle blend of unique tastes and fine artistic skills of Thai food, but they also feature authentic Thai dances with classical music. The unique, classic and delicate movements of performers dressed exquisitely in traditionally embroidered costumes have been created and well developed to entertain the spectators since ancient times.
The traditional Thai dance is totally different from western entertainments. Its elaborate movements are rather slow but mesmerizing with lively rhythms and sound of various kinds of oriental instruments. Many kinds of dancing are performed during the meal, each featuring distinctive movements and accompanied by music with different tempos. Dating back to the past before it becomes a popular style of theatrical dance, Thai dance was once performed exclusively in the royal court and performers must be ladies only.
