“My sons have been attending the VOU school for some years now and I am so happy with the confidence they have gained. It helps them not only on stage dancing, but also when they find themselves in a situation where they have to speak to an audience. They are so dedicated to VOU and I believe that is mainly due to the family feel they get there. It is a fabulous way to harness that young child energy and I love seeing the proud faces after each concert. A big vinaka to the VOU team from my boys and I!”
“…a wildly spirited performance by some arrestingly powerful dancers, based upon their recent and obviously heartfelt experiences…”
“..the dancers’ performances inspire… With articulate, dexterous, ocean-like fluidity they lay out a gamut of emotions including loss, longing, struggle, conflict and aspiration”.
“It is the only Fijian company that blends contemporary and traditional art… For many years the Embassy of France has supported the company by including it through its French events.”
“VOU Dance Co….has transformed the dance community in Fiji…The world needs to know more about the Pacific and especially the dancing Pacific.”
