Sacred Heart College students will depict a theme of “Diversi­ty” through their dance perfor­mance during the Kula Awards – Fiji Link Dance Competition on January 28 at the National Gymnasium.

The school’s dance competition co-ordinator, Kunal Chand, said that the performance would be for nine min­utes and the dance involved people of all races.

“We are a multicultural college be­cause we have students from outside Fiji like Korea and China,” Mr Chand said.

There are about 20 participants and the college had been a three-time winner at the annual show in 2012, 2013 and 2014.

“Diversity describes the similarities and differences that people have,” Mr Chand said.

“It includes important and interre­lated dimensions of human identity such as race, ethnicity, gender, gen­der identity and expression, socio-economic status, nationality, citizen­ship, religion, sexual orientation, ability, and age.”

Year 12 student, Teresia Baleina­korodawa, a choreographer and pro­ducer within the dance group said the dancers had been working hard and coming together every afternoon for rehearsals.

“Since I also participated last year, I find it interesting because we are able to interact with people and see new talents,” she said.

Josefa Suiqua of Year 10, who is also a member of the dance group said that he was inspired by his sister who was also part of the dance group.

“I love dancing to songs, which de­picts meaningful messages such as diversity,” he said.
