Ronnarong Khampha (“Ong”) is a dancer/choreographer from Northern Thailand. Captivated by Lanna dance when he was young, he later graduated with an honors degree in Thai arts from Chiang Mai University in 2005.


Although his background is traditional, Khampha's focus is on contemporary performance. He has developed his own style using old-style dance as the base, venturing into new aesthetics. Khampha studied Javanese and Balinese dance in Solo (Surakarta), Indonesia for two years (2006-08), and Japanese Noh Drama for six months in Kyoto (2010).


Khampha has performed solo and collaborated with artists from Thailand, America, Japan, Korea, Australia and Indonesia, in dance festivals in Europe, North America, Australia and Asia.
