Neori Frances Ravuso aims to inspire others through his passion for dancing.

The 26-year-old was one of the twelve people who graduated with a Conservatorium of Dance Diploma programme at the Sofitel Fiji Resort and Spa in Nadi on Friday.

Originally from Lau with maternal links to Rewa, Mr Ravuso’s parents had expected their youngest son to study Mechanical Engineering and focus on that field for his future.

He followed his parent’s will by studying the course at the Fiji National University after completing his secondary school education at Lelean Memorial School.

At tertiary, he changed his plan to study arts and culture after he said that a friend had introduced him to the dance programme.

Mr Ravuso said the programme had inspired him to maintain the skills and the history of his culture.

“The dance programme has changed a lot of things about how I view life. I believe many of the youth of today have lost their knowledge of their tradition and culture.

“I am inspired to inspire others in reviving our history. Dance is something that revives our spirit.”

Resort, Chris Hamilton who was the chief guest at the event said the graduation is a symbol of the commitment the graduates have shown to invest in their passion and be a part of bringing an industry and country back to life through their talent.

 

Head of Conservatorium of Dance

The Head of Conservatorium of Dance, Sachiko Soro said there are many jobs that the graduates of the Conservatorium of Dance can go into.

She said these jobs include dancers, dance teachers, choreographers, rehearsal directors, dramaturge, dance researchers, curators, costume designers, dance lighting technicians, dance music editors, dance film producers, dance therapists, festival directors, programmers, arts administrators, arts marketers, audience development managers, community dance coordinators and many more.

“The creative industries are an untapped part of our economy; we hope that this diploma program can continue to teach the skills needed to work in long term and fulfilling sustainable careers.”

“The Graduates of the Conservatorium of Dance will not only be creatively skilled, but also critical and reflective thinkers. It is our hope that they will be able to solve problems and find solutions for an innovative future, and contribute in a positive way to the building of our nation,” Ms Soro added
