DANCERS were on fire on Saturday evening as they gave the crowd a taste of what to expect from this year's Dancing Superstar competition.

Thirteen contestants turned up to the premiere night, which showcased and launched the competition; the event will be Fiji's first televised dance competition.

"One of the main purposes of the competition is to show dancers who are representing the multi-ethnical and multicultural aspects of the country," explained Ganesha Production executive producer Sandeep Narayan.

"But also we want to show the world that as a small nation, we can pursue such an international standard show."

Mr Narayan said the organisers went throughout the country in search of some of Fiji's finest dancers in the hope they would be able to highlight the importance of dance as well as the talent in Fiji.

"We went all over Fiji and picked the best dancers around and today is the premiere and what we're presenting to you is what Fiji is all about. You are all supporting Fiji by being here," Mr Narayan said at the launch.

"I hope we can provide the support to enable them to explore their god-given talents."

The winner of the competition, which begins on January 2, will receive $10,000 and an international contract.
