On the Expo's Pacific Stage, dancers from Thailand have brought over traditional Thai performances. Audiences can enjoy the beautiful dances and get a glimpse of Thai daily life and culture.

In the "Fawn Leb," or finger-nail Dance from north Thailand, dancers with brass fingernails embody feminine softness and elegance through relaxed and fluid movements.

Hand-net dance from the northeast was created with the inspiration from a traditional fishing tool. It illustrates how local fishermen work together to make a living, and their enthusiasm for life.

The light-hearted music in the "Fawn Marn Mong Kol" or the happy dance, bring the audience the traditions and culture from Mid-Thailand.

 

Similarly, the South Thailand's daily life can be seen from the girls dancing with fans.
