Brother dances sister's dream

JOHN Peckham used to perform his parents' role during his childhood days and one of them was caring for his physically-disabled sister.

This was the main message he delivered during the Fiji's Dancing Superstar final on Saturday night.

A contemporary dance by him and his dance partner Sharleen Ali left the crowd in awe as he depicted in his dance how his late sister had always struggled to stand up because of her love for dance.

Mr Peckham went on to describe how his sister had approached him in a dream to tell him he should continue his dance career.

It was the reason he decided to continue in memory of his sister.

Ms Ali, on the other hand, depicted her parents' love and how they had been the backbone of her success.

The duo walked away $10,000 richer after claiming the main prize.

Glen Macalinao, who represented the Simla Lost Boys from Lautoka, was also given a position in the show as the Season 2 choreographer.

The next season starts in July.

Show producer Sandeep Narayan said they would begin scouting for potential dancers a month before.
